A new milestone in the journey of developing our bakery social enterprise has been achieved when a new partnership, Le Moulin Sdn Bhd, was formed in August 2020, An established healthy food provider in Selangor, Rainbows Health Food Industries Sdn Bhd, has joined force with us towards the common vision to elevate our bakery production capacity for the long-term development and sustainability. This is the first time for Life2Life to partner with an industry practitioner in developing a social enterprise as part of our ministry to the marginalised displaced communities.

With the ultimate goal of supporting the ministry to be self-sustaining through profit generating production activities, Le Moulin started off the operation with a more organised business system and management structure and aims to apply for the Malaysia HALAL and HACCP certification eventually. The profound experience and expertise knowledge of Rainbows would be an added advantage for Life2Life to upscale the previous L2L bakery capacity and market.
In their daily operation, Le Moulin wishes to create more income generating opportunities to the marginalised refugees and other irregular immigrant communities. But most importantly, we aim at the human development as well. We wish to see the community acquiring not only skills enhancement, but a more holistic development in terms of their personality, social and communication skills, so that every worker can be a better person while they are with us. Besides, Le Moulin also hopes to discover new talents especially in baking skills and relevant know-how so that we can continue to create new products to meet the market evolving demand.
This is a new journey for us all at Elshaddai. In the midst of facing challenging times of Covid-19 pandemic, we are truly thankful for this new opportunity that came upon us. Now that the production has started to run since October 2020, we are looking at supplying more healthy and good quality products to consumers. At the same time we wish to promote our products through the forthcoming www.rainbowssprouted.com e-commerce site.
The two new business partners who have joined us in Le Moulin once shared their thoughts that “it’s always our vision to be part of a social enterprise ministry so that the businesses that we are running can be a blessing to support the marginalised communities in our neighbourhood”. We pray that with this commitment and dedication, the new journey for our bakery will flourish in time to come!
