the 1880s, two brothers of the Poon family; Poon Bei Shi and
Poon Ying Shi of Kaiping county in Guangdong province, China
began business using the name POON GOOR SOE selling
medicinal products. The business prospered and eventually,
the fourth son of Poon Bei Shi; Poon Yu Sheng took over the
running of the family business. However during the 1911
Revolution, Western medicine became popular which affected
the sales. Fortunately, Poon Yu Sheng having keen business
acumen decided to revive the family business through the
development of new products. At that time he noticed the
people in the Southern China , were prone to coughs and
colds owing to the hot and humid weather, he decided to
develop a cough preparation to meet that needs. He
eventually created Poon Goor Soe Pei Pa Lo, a formulation
with a blend of well-known herbal ingredients known for
their curative properties. He also designed a very intricate
and innovative packaging to attract customers; using the
portrait of his father and himself. In fact the original
design is still being use to this present day with minor
modifications; reflecting the endearing and forehsightedness
of Poon Yu Sheng.
Poon Yu Sheng having the
entrepreneur spirit began to expand the business, setting up
offices in Hong Kong then to Malaysia and Singapore .
Business continued to grow and very quickly the Poon Goor
Soe Pei Pa Lo had became a household name. Every mention of
Pei pa lo, consumers will think of Poon Goor Soe brand of
Pei Pa Lo. Our presence soon expanded to many countries
including USA , Canada and many Asian countries.
Malaysia and Singapore business was later taken over by the
son of Poon Yu Sheng, Poon Kuen who continued the family
concern. Then in 1991, Poon Kuen's eldest son, Poon Kah Hoe
joined the company and had taken the responsibility to
continue to build upon the established name of Poon Goor Soe.
In the 1990s the company began to implement the GMP (Good
Manufacturing Practice) standard of production for its
products. Design on the packaging was refreshed;
instructional wordings on the package were made more users'
A new product was launched, the Poon Goor
Soe Herbal Lozenges to meet present consumers' demand of
convenient packaging and usage. Poon Goor Soe Pei Pa Ko,

improved and design and packaging refreshed to meet present
consumers need. More new products will be introduced at the
opportune time to project a wider and complete range of
