Vanilla Biometrix (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd

Samantha at Progressive Asia Group Sdn Bhd writes that Malaysia based vanilla group Rentak Timur Sdn Bhd has changed to Vanilla Biometrix Sdn Bhd:

The company above is helping land owners to grow vanilla . The land owners will have to  come out with a capital based on acreage.  Everything will be provided by the company above. It takes 3 years for the first harvesting. When ready, Vanilla Biometrix will purchase from the land owners and do the curing. Vanilla Biometrix will produce by products eg. vanilla pods, extract etc. and sell.

They will fax a spec sheet for the vanilla plantation costing.

Thanks for the update Samantha.


  1. l like to involve in vanilla plantation, where i can get the vanilla seeds in malaysia

  2. We are in vanilla business, we are a nursery provider, we have vanilla sample plot for public to view and we have ready cuttings stock fos sales. The cuttings are ready for planting now. My contact is 012 8834466 or email You are welcome to view our nursery or sample plot at Tinggian Demak, Jalan Demak, Kuching.

  3. One sad thing that we observed following the great interest in planting vanilla is the emergence of individuals and companies, especially in Sarawak, who are taking advantage of this development to make fast bug by buying cutting from overseas and selling it as planting materials without propagating the plant under quarantine first. Knowing that vanilla nursery is a short-term business all they are interested is making quick profit without any consideration about potential spread of diseases. Once sold, they claim no further responsibility on what will happen to the planters. We saw this as very bad for the vanilla industry. The government should arrest this problem at the bud before it causes damage to this young and potentially lucrative industry. Some nursery “owner” even went to the extent to say that they have big vanilla farm. I know of one who even claim in the media that he has a big matured farm eventhough he only come to know about vanilla in November 2008 from us.
