Native to South East Asia the durian has become the most expensive fruit commercially available on the planet. Over the last decade its distinctive aroma and delicious, succulent flesh has created a demand from new markets across the globe including China, Australia and the USA.
With the fruit wholly dependent on the tropical climate of South East Asia, this increasing demand will out-strip supply for the foreseeable future.
The Musang King durian business model is export focused and volume driven
Malaysia is known as the home of the durian, offering high agricultural expertise with low operational costs. However, its wholesale price per kg is a fraction of the international market. All plantation infrastructure is therefore based in Malaysia but targeted to the more lucrative international market.
Volume drives profitability which is why Agroforestry Group is focused on growth. Each plantation has 1500 trees, of which 500 are sold to private investors. This capital injection drives a faster expansion and greater durian production, giving greater leverage in the wholesale durian sales market.
