Some Interesting News After The Chinese Authorities Signed Those 8 Malaysian Exporting Companies !!!
I have the following to share with all about the current situation with Malaysian Birdnests.
First of all the price per kilogram now have shown some improvement.
Those nests produced from certified BHs or should I say with RFID tagging and grade A can now fetch about RM 2,300 per kilogram.
This is a very good news since it used to be below RM 1000 per kg during the bad period or the very bad period about two years ago.
The only thing that I need to stress to all is that only those with traceability facilities will benefit from this so called new ceiling price.
Those without the traceability tag will have little benefit from this news.
The second important news is that the Chinese Authorities are looking at the purchasing of raw nests (unprocessed nests).
Remember the export lisences signed were only for processed nests but not unprocessed nests.
However due to possible price repercussion the idea of selling raw nests to China is not well received by the Malaysian side (association members).
If the Malaysian side should in any case agreed, only those nests (again) that were harvested from tagged BH will benefit from it.
I believed if this should happened the price of raw nests will climb much higher. Hopefully with touch RM 4000 -7000 one day.
So those who owned BH and have not get their BH tagged please do so.
The procedure is available at this website:
I was told that the fee to tag is FOC.
All you need to do is to visit the nearest Jabatan Veterina and arrange for the tagging.
They will come over to your BH and make the necessary arrangement.
Usually they will come with the TAG and installed.
By the time they finish inspecting your BH the TAG is installed usually near the main entrance door.
You will be provided with a kind of log book and a certificate.
They will also advise you on what to do and not to do before they chow !!!
There is more benefits if you can quickly get your BH RFID tagged.
However I feel that if your BH output is less then a few kilograms it will be redundant.
So if I were you try to start looking at how to increase the nests population and if you don't know how to call 017 7551318.
I will be very happy to come and have a look at your BH and see what can be done to improve the nests numbers.
