Guardian is the largest health, beauty and personal care chain in Malaysia, with more than 400 stores nationwide. The Guardian brand name is widely recognized by Malaysian consumers and trusted for offering quality products at affordable prices. The strong branding, extensive range of health and beauty products and our customer-driven focus approach have enabled us to maintain our position at the top of the market.
As a testament to our success, Guardian has received many industry accolades. In 2000, we were listed as the largest pharmacy chain in the Malaysian Book of Records. Following that, we were also recognized by the Malaysia Design Technology Centre, which awarded Guardian the National Award for Creativity and Innovation 2003. Guardian’s creativity and innovation in outstanding brand development were singled out by the judges for contributing to the overall image of Malaysia as a country that produces quality products and provides distinctive service.
Owned by Guardian Health And Beauty Sdn Bhd, we take pride on our dedication to customers by providing professional and high quality services. From modest beginnings in the late 1960’s, Guardian is now part of the Dairy Farm International Group, which has operations throughout Malaysia, Brunei, Singapore, Indonesia, Vietnam and Cambodia.
To ensure the best possible customer service, trained pharmacists are on hand to give professional advice and consultation to customers. Guardian pharmacists undertake regular refresher courses to learn about new drugs in the market and to keep abreast with the latest medical changes in the environment.
In 1967, Guardian was a mere 200 square feet pharmacy at the Weld in Jalan Raja Chulan catering to the expatriate community. Today we have transformed into the largest Pharmacy, Health and Beauty retail chain in Malaysia; offering goods and services to more than 30 million Malaysian consumers.
Guardian’s commitment to its customer’s needs is reflected in the dedicated team of pharmacists, who impart professional advice and consultation to customers. We stand committed to our strong corporate governance, which upholds responsible dispensing. This also brought forth an agreement with University Kebangsaan Malaysia and The International Medical University to facilitate a community pharmacy attachment programme to develop working skills and abilities required to purse a career as a pharmacist in today’s ever changing health care environment.
Guardian celebrates four decades of success by making a pledge to contribute to worthy causes. As the renown Pharmacy, Health and Beauty retail chain, Guardian is an advocate of corporate philanthropic by giving back to the community by getting involved in the efforts that help to provide and promote the care, development and well-being of the local communities and supporting programs that are dedicated towards those in need namely, women and children. Among the organizations we have help to raise funds are National Stoke Association of Malaysia (NASAM), National Cancer foundation (Makna), PRIDE Foundation, Women’s Aid Organisation (WAO), The Malaysian Parkinson’s Disease Association, The Alzheimer’s Disease Association of Malaysia and World Vision.
