Journey through Great UK Food at Mercato

When going on a shopping spree, what do you usually look for?

The answer is just three words; Quality, Affordability and Variety.

It’s a nightmare to live in the city, especially if you’re a cheapskate. Why? With the ever-increasing food prices and expensive lifestyle, your salary will never be enough to pay your expenses, your social outings AND your meals. Don’t fret, though! There is a way you can save without compromising your food comfort level.


Great Value and Top Notch Quality at Mercato


The most common misconception that Malaysians have is that eating healthy is expensive. Actually, it doesn’t!

This misconception is borne out of the difference in prices as well as product variety in different supermarkets and grocery stores.

Another reason that makes buying groceries such a headache is because we associate quality with price. That is why we are always buying RM 15 soy sauce instead of a RM 4 bottle when in fact, both has almost the same exact quality!

Don’t sigh and resign to a life of wastage and mediocrity because now you are able to get quality and branded products at an affordable price. Where? Mercato, of course!


The Very Best of UK in Mercato

GCH Retail Malaysia launched The GREAT UK Food Journey 2018 with the British High Commissioner Her Excellency Vicki Treadell in attendance at Mercato’s latest outlet in Pavillion Kl last April 3rd.

According to Ms. Alice Lau, the Upscale Business Director of GCH, “The GREAT UK Food Journey is a month-long effort to elevate UK food products and brands for Malaysians to experience the UK’s unique food culture through this month-long, once in a lifetime experience.”

In other words, this campaign opens up great opportunities to explore the intercultural exchange between two nations while showcasing variety of UK brands and products that GCH Malaysia-operated outlets has to offer to the Malaysian market.

Butterkicap Team

We're just a small group of friends who love food, culture and Malaysia. We saw the rise of mediocre food, deteriorating relationships and missed the good old days of Malaysia where food was good, homes were warmer and full of friends and family. So we rolled up our sleeves, and made Butterkicap with the hope that it will bring people and flavors home.
