This EPP, driven by the Ministry of Agriculture (MoA), aims to consolidate the local
processed food industry by developing an integrated food park facility. The food
park will produce ready-to-eat packaged food by SMEs.
The packaged food will be marketed and distributed by anchor
companies who will also obtain product certification, package, brand, market, manage
suppliers and help develop small fragmented players through apprenticeship training.
- Four new anchor companies, DMS Resources Sdn Bhd, The Holstein Milk Co Sdn Bhd, Top Fruits Sdn Bhd and Ramly Food Processing Sdn Bhd, were appointed in 2014.
- In 2014, RM230 million in sales was registered, surpassing the target of RM171 million. The 64 SMEs developed under the programme thus far contributed to around RM34.32 million of sales in 2014.
