In the upcoming decades, ASEAN will have a strong influence on the food industry in Malaysia. This is because ASEAN countries are expected to become major consumers of food, especially in the case of Southeast Asia. Therefore, it is important for Malaysian food producers to be aware of this trend and utilize various production techniques that can help them not only compete with other producers but also increase their market share.
The food industry in Malaysia is enormous. It comprises of both commercial and non-commercial sectors. The market for food products is constantly growing and it is still very competitive. Food safety, quality, and packaging are among the key issues that are affected by the rapid growth of the market.
Malaysia is a so-called food basket country. Hence, food is an important part of the Malaysian culture and economy.
Aiming to meet their demand for food, Malaysia has been working on their ASEAN Food Agreement (AFTA) since 1997. The goal of the agreement is to increase access to affordable ASEAN-sourced and produced food for people in ASEAN countries. This includes formalizing trade between ASEAN countries as well as more direct investments from SEZs in ASEAN SEZs and even with non-ASEAN SEZs through SEZ investment agreements (SIEAs).
Last week, The Star, the nation’s biggest English daily, announced that they are launching a food delivery service called Zulu.
To accommodate the growing number of foodies in Malaysia, the newspaper has been working with a team of food experts to analyse what ingredients are becoming popular in the ASEAN region and have already found five key ingredients. What these food trends mean for our national cuisine and how they can be used as an ingredient in future recipes?
In this section we will cover; (1) Trends in Food In Asia: Which countries have been successful at catching up to other countries such as China and Japan? (2) ASEAN has a reputation for good quality foods but does it really mean good quality foods? (3) How is the distribution of produce around Kuala Lumpur different.
ASEAN is a region of Southeast Asia which comprises the countries of Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia and Singapore. The smaller nations of Laos and Cambodia are not part of ASEAN as they are still considered as independent states by many.
Asean has become a common topic in marketing and communication as it is the region that produces most of the food in the world. This tends to make ASEAN countries very popular among consumers who want to know more about their food intake patterns.
Food is an important part of daily life for many people in the Southeast Asian region. Governments and private companies have been spending a lot of money on research and development to improve the quality and safety of food products.
When it comes to ASEAN, we are more concerned with improving the standards in specific countries rather than improving it globally. This is because ASEAN has strong ties with Japan, China, Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore and Myanmar.
The fact that they have strong ties with these countries means they will be able to supply food products at much cheaper prices than domestic producers. It is also inevitable that some manufacturing facilities will move from other countries here in order to expand their business into this region.
This means that not only local suppliers will be affected by this trend but also our existing suppliers overseas
In the world, ASEAN controls food. And it’s no different in Malaysia. There are a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables that I’m not aware of. I am more familiar with rice, fish and meat. So I had to ask myself – what kind of ASEAN controlled food do we really have?
The people of Malaysia are obsessed with food. In fact, it is considered a national obsession and many people like to simply eat more than any other country. This obsession makes it nearly impossible for Malaysia to meet its food needs, particularly for fresh produce and fish due to the lack of space in the country already.
In order to meet the demands of this population, Malaysian officials are planning to set up new farms to grow produce from various regions of the country. This will not only help meet the demand for fresh produce but will also help Malaysia reduce its reliance on imported goods and boost its economy by reducing costs associated with imports.
