19 November 2009 – The Agriculture & Agrifood Expo was launcded at the Agro-technology park. His majesty gave an opening speech on how agriculture and entrepreneurship is important and is even an obligation in terms of social, economic and religion.
His majesty later presented 3 selected entrepreneurs for their achievements. Namely Soon Lee Farms and Trading (Soon Lee Supermarket and Ayamku) , Sahamada Sdn Bhd (Exported Cinta Chilli Sauce), and Awg Chien Puong Chin (Don’t know exactly famous for, somebody please tell me if you know).
His majesty then visited all the booths that were at the expo. From the companies that provided fertilizer, machinery, fruits and vegetables, paddy planting and equipment, processed foods, to business and marketing consultants.
Interesting booths that I saw were:
- a company that invented a rat trap that can trap several rats (a CIPTA award winner).
- Some LiveWIRE members selling organic fertilizer and another selling electronic (produced) fertilizer, and then some were in farming, and others were in processed foods.
- Some Huge Fruits (you can see a few in my pictures)
- Some locally made cakes and other food sources.
