“Duria” is unignorable when it comes to durian products in Malaysia. Known as a pioneering brand in the durian industry of Malaysia, Duria proposed in 2002 the establishment of the first integrated durian factory to the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Industries. After six years, their products had been successfully exported to the markets of many regions such as the US, Hong Kong, and Australia.
In addition to durian ice cream, Duria specializes in snowy durian mooncakes. Stuffed with Musang King as the filling, Duria’s mooncakes have diverse options for flavors, including coffee durian, bamboo charcoal durian, pandan durian, vanilla durian, etc. To make the package look more ceremonial in gifting, the gift box uses an elegant black steel box. What’s more, the gift box is put inside a gold-colored cooler bag when carried, to make it stylish and exquisite in appearance.
