Food Industry in Malaysia


Food Industry

The food-processing sector accounts for about 10% of Malaysia's manufacturing output. Processed foods are exported to more than 200 countries, with an annual export value of more than RM11 billion (USD4 billion) which amounts to two-thirds of the total food exports of over RM18 billion. Although the export performance of this sector has doubled overthe last ten years, Malaysia continues to be a net importer of food products with annual import of more than RM30 billion (USD9.9 billion). Advances in processing technology have widened the usage of local raw materials, expanding the range of products and increasing the investment absorbing capacity in the food industry.
