Rentak Timur (Malaysia)

Status: Defunct/out of business. Telephone disconnected.
Vanilla beans reviewed: NONE

Rentak Timur has a nice website, but it seems they have stopped all operations. They do not respond to email, and their telephone has been disconnected. I moved them to a special “defunct” category on the vendor list page.

I’ve had no contact from Rentak Timur for months — if you have any luck, please let me know.

RTSB (Rentak Timur Sdn Bhd) is a vanilla outfit in Malaysia. Bobby at Rentak Timur was going to send a bean sample to photograph, but then I never heard from him again. If you have any contact with Rentak Timur, please post a comment below, or use the contact form.

Rentak Timur lists a variety of products here. Supposedly, you can contact Bobby to place an order, but I’ve never heard back from him:

    boleh = can

    bg = ??


    mengenai = in connection with; regarding

    pokok = (1)tree (2)principle; capital

    bg (bagi) = give pokok = in

    bg (bagi) = give
    pokok = in this instance, means tree

    literal translation: Can give info regarding vanilla tree.

    vanilla current price

    Hi Ian, may I know the current price (& previous 5 yrs) for wet & dry vanilla? Currently Koperasi Pembangunan Desa, Sabah, Borneo is doing some R & D…I would like to know whether Malaysian weather especially Sarawak, Borneo is suitable for the plantation.

    This graph of vanilla prices (direct link)from Venui Vanilla is the best info on vanilla prices that I know. It runs 1970-2006 for dry vanilla, globally. This graph was made with data from the US government USDA.

    There isn’t much (free) info on the price of vanilla. One of the big problems is that vanilla from different origins cost different amounts even for the same quality — Madagascar vanilla beans will always be more expensive than Indonesian vanilla beans (on average).

    Probably the best reference on vanilla growing is Venui Vanilla’s vanilla growing guide. This book might help you determine if your climate is right for growing vanilla.

    Please keep us updated on your vanilla project.
