Kulim’s involvement in the Agrofood business was a logical offshoot of its traditional palm oil business. It started with small scale cattle rearing in the oil palm estates as a biological control measure under the weeding programme. This is in line with the Government’s call for estate owners to implement a cattle breeding and rotational grazing programme in compliance with Good Animal Husbandry Practices (“GAHP”). In 2019, there are over 6,000 heads of cattle grazing on Kulim’s 12 estates.

Feedlot is the other component of Kulim’s cattle-rearing programme, which is currently being run by Kulim Livestock Sdn Bhd(“KLSB”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kulim. KLSB is principally involved in the rearing and fattening of cattle for one (1)cycle of four (4) months before they are sold or slaughtered.

The company currently runs its feedlotting programme in three (3) locations, namely,Bukit Nyamuk in Simpang Renggam with 523 heads of cattle, Taman Kekal Pengeluaran Makanan (“TKPM”) in PetaTemalik, Segamat.

In addition to fulfilling KLSB’s own requirement, the napieris also meant for sale to local farmers and for the production of a downstream product, which is napier pellets,for both local and export markets. 

We are targetting to expand the napier planting at Tebing Tinggi, Segamat with a target planting area of to 12 hectares in 2019 and to produce napier pellet.

Kulim has been involved in the pineapple industry since 1994 through our MD2 pineapple plantations run by Kulim Pineapple Farm (“KPF”) which are located in Ulu Tiram and Kluang, Johor. 

KPF has embarked on an expansion programme through collaboration with MPIB for the Agropreneur B40 programme. Under this programme, 12 Agropreneur participants from the B40 group will be groomed to develop pineapple plantation beginning August 2018 at Tanah Abang, Mersing.

Marketed under the brand name “Melita”, the MD2 pineapples produced by KPF receives good demand from both local and overseas markets. In 2018, total production of pineapples amounted to 3,208 tonnes, of which 92% were sold domestically while the remainder were exported to countries such as Iran,Lebanon, Dubai and China.

KPF aims to be a cost leader and main producer of MD2 pineapple, promoting Melita as a premium yet affordable brand.In addition to producing premium fruits and suckers, the Group will be focusing on land usage optimisation with a higher density of plants per acre. To add value to the production of fresh fruits,we have also ventured downstream by producing a variety of pineapple-based products which include canned juice, tarts, jam,chips and slices. Our Group will continue to broaden the usage of the pineapple through collaboration with researchers from local universities. Moving forward, KPF is also looking into further area expansion for its pineapple farm through collaboration with other GLCs in the near future.
