New corned beef processing plant in Malaysia announced
A new corned beef processing plant is being set up in the Malaysian state of Sarawak.
The plant, which will be capable of producing 18,000 cans per day, is being set up by the Sarawak Economic Development Corporation (SEDC).
SEDC chairman, Tan Sri Datuk Amar Abdul Aziz Husain, made the announcement in his speech during his visit to the Halal Abbatoir Complex in Siburan.
“This corned beef processing plant is fully designed by our in-house project management team and is expected to start operating in the first quarter of 2023,” he said.
Abdul Aziz was accompanying Deputy Minister of Utility and Telecommunication II Datuk Dr Abdul Rahman Junaidi and members of Sarawak Islamic Council’s (MIS) halal committee during the visit to the abattoir.
With a vision to lead the development of agriculture and food industry in the state, Abdul Aziz said he is optimistic that the SEDC Agro sector can be a supplier of affordable high quality protein in the country.
While he did not reveal where the plant will be located, it could likely be within the Halal Abattoir Complex.
