MAFC for Growers

AFC is committed to secure fresh fruits and vegetables from local growers and businesses that adhere to SALM, the Malaysian Good Agriculture Practices Certification which is now known as MyGAP, to supply safe, fresh and quality produce to retailers, wholesalers and food service operators nationwide and overseas.

 

The vegetables sourced are also in accordance with Good Manufacturing Practise (GMP) that signifies the stringent criteria at the various value-add centres to execute post-harvest activities.

 

As the safety of food is of prime importance when selecting vegetables, hence the accreditation of Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) in vital as it identifies specific hazards and measures for their control to ensure the safety of food. HACCP can be applied throughout the food chain from primary production to final consumption and its implementation is guided by scientific evidence of risks to human health.

MAFC is the first and the only company in Malaysia to invest in commercial CEF greenhouses. The CEF greenhouses can withstand wind speed up to 150 km/hr. The structure can last for at least 20 years with regular maintenance. With the CEF greenhouses, farmers are able to achieve higher yield per square meter compared to the traditional farming methods. The fertigation system that comes with the CEF is also able to save fertilizer consumption between 35-40%.

 

MAFC has embarked on building CEF greenhouses for tomatoes and lettuce in Tanah Rata, Cameron Highlands through a joint venture with MARDI.
