POPULAR’s publishing business dates back to the 1930s, starting with Chinese educational materials. Today, it has evolved into a vast network that allows POPULAR to reach out to consumers in various regions. POPULAR has established itself as a leading bilingual publishing group, offering a wide variety of books ranging from educational materials to lifestyle titles

Singapore & Malaysia

In Singapore and Malaysia, Educational Publishing House (EPH) has a strong track record in publishing educational titles. EPH Singapore is the leading publisher of quality educational books, particularly for school assessments and preschool titles. By providing quality educational content, it empowers students, parents, tutors, and teachers to succeed. EPH Singapore is also the government-authorised publisher of national examination papers (Ten-Year Series in book format), including papers for the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE), O-Level, and A-Level examinations. Despite the evolving landscape of Singapore’s education system, EPH Singapore consistently enhances student’s learning experience by integrating effective pedagogy with digital technologies, such as e-books, online resources, and instructional videos in their titles. These innovative efforts have solidified EPH Singapore’s position in the educational market.

While EPH Malaysia may have established itself through publishing assessment books and reference materials for primary students and activity books for preschoolers, it has since begun expanding into secondary school titles. EPH Malaysia has shown significant growth, going from a modest 60 published titles in 1998 to a whopping total of 466 titles in 2023. Among them are several top-rated titles, including English titles adapted from POPULAR Canada and EPH Singapore that are published in tandem with the increasing demand for quality English guides and assessments at affordable prices in Malaysia.

Besides educational publishing, Seashore Publishing in Malaysia also publishes bilingual cookbooks, self-improvement books, biographies, and health-related titles. Its signature titles are the English-Chinese bilingual cookbooks, which cover a wide range of Eastern, Western, and local cooking styles. There are also several titles published in collaboration with celebrity chefs.
