Lapasar - On Track To Become Malaysia’s Biggest Wholesaler?

Small grocery stores and restaurants have to fight for supplies with bigger chains and players, which is often a losing battle.

Enter Lapasar - a B2B wholesale platform that has served over 10,000 SMEs across the country through its own warehousing, distribution and financial services capabilities.

With ambitions to become the largest wholesaler in Malaysia, we dive into Lapasar’s journey to hit RM1 billion in revenue and their path to profitability, with Thinesh Kumar Asogan, the Co-founder and CEO of Lapasar.

Thinesh also gets into Lapasar’s plans to develop its own consumer brands and products, use its scale to expand margins, and what he expects Lapasar to look like in 2025.
