In a 2019 report, the demand for Malaysian swiftlet nests is increasing exponentially. China now demands more than 20 tonnes a month while the overall bird’s nest market will surpass 600 tonnes annually. This represents immense investment opportunities in Malaysia.
Bird’s nest is incredibly popular in China, for its nourishing benefits. It is widely consumed by pregnant women, senior citizens, and the general public. However, the supply of bird’s nest falls short of its demand, making it a highly valuable commodity.
In addition, since 2013 China has relaxed its one-child policy, making it possible for Chinese couples, who are the only child, to have a second child. Since then, some 90 million women in China are eligible under that policy. In 2018, it is recorded that China has 15.2 million babies, we are expecting more on the following years.
This represents a huge opportunity for bird’s nest producers as the commodity is highly valued during pre- and post-natal care as well as improving one’s general health.
Managing swiftlet farms requires specific expertise and knowledge that not many members of the public have. Our company already has a good track record as well as the experienced human capital required.
For investors, swiftlet houses is a great way to derive a passive but respectable income. In the long-term, our swiftlet farms are able to yield hundreds of thousands of yuan annually.
Once production is consistent, one swiftlet house is able to produce more than 5,000 raw bird’s nests a month, amounting to more than 42kg. Based on 2019’s market price, each kilogramme fetches between RMB5500 and RMB6000 (RM3,350-RM3650).
An investment unit with us has a validity period of 60 years and transferrable to third parties. Investors will be able to easily break even in the few years. And for the next 40-50 years, they can expect a high annual profit while we manage the business.
The nature of swiftlets is that they breed three times a year, and grown up swiftlets will return to their area of birth to nest. Hence, we are confident of a sustainable yield of bird’s nests.
Each of our signature swiftlet houses is a double-storey bricked building that is about 1,600 square feet in size. Each house consists of 128 pieces of nesting boards. Each nesting boards can hold up to 40 pieces of bird’s nest.
Within the house, we have installed a ventilation system, a solar powered system, and our exclusive swiftlet sound frequency. We are diligent in maintaining its internal temperature, humidity, odour, and dark interiors to make it extremely attractive to the swiftlets.
