Food waste management is a major problem for most premises in Malaysia. The study involved a Small Medium Industries (SMls) namely Makanan Ringan Mas Industry that is located in Parit Kuari Darat, Johor. The premise generates food waste almost every day including processed food waste (chips and coconut candy) and raw food waste (banana peels, tapioca peels, breadfruit peels and coconut grated). The objective of the study was to determine the waste generation and composition of food waste generated by the premise. The study was done by collecting data from the premise once a week. The amount of raw food waste generated by Makanan Ringan Mas lndustry was more compared to processed food waste. Banana peels have the highest moisture content which is 86.04% compared to other waste. As the conclusion, banana peels waste were the highest component in the food waste composition by Makanan Ringan Mas Industry and coconut candy waste as the lowest disposed food waste
