Health Ministry to promote Bird’s Nest Products among Malaysians

Posted on February 18, 2012, Saturday
BENTONG: The health ministry will launch a campaign to promote bird’s nest-based products among Malaysians, said minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai.

He said the Cabinet had directed the ministry and the agriculture and agro-based industry ministry to “save the bird’s nest industry” which had declined due to overproduction.

“As a result, the price per kilogram has dropped from RM4,000 to about RM1,000,” he told reporters at a Chinese New Year celebration event with the Orang Asli community in Kampung Cinta Manis near here.
He said bird’s nest could, for instance, be made into soup like sharkfin soup, which is popular among Malaysians.
