The company was founded in 1997, as one of its founders, Saad Abdillah, started his entrance in the bird nest business as a swallow’s nest collector that collects raw nests from breeders and trades them to factories to be processed further. It was Saad Abdillah’s grand vision to expand his business to Malaysia, Hong Kong and China which eventually introduced him to Alan Law, a Malaysian collector and successful businessman.
In 2007 Alan and Saad Abdillah collaborated for the first time and increased the quantity of raw edible bird nest to be distributed amongst factories nationally.
However, the bird nest crisis in 2011 led Alan to migrate to China and master the art of producing the highest level of cleaning development of raw edible bird nest.
Alan’s dedication and state-of-the-art products gained the trust and loyalty of a large base of bird nest customers in China as he provided some of the best ready-to-consume bird nest available on the market.
With the desire to establish a production factory which can produce the best quality of bird nest, Alan and Saad finally collaborated with Ahmad Wakid who has more than 30 years of experience in International Market in Branding and Consumer field.
The combination of these experts in their respective fields who has the same vision and mission will present the best ready-to-consume bird nest products for both national and international use.
The year 2018 marked the beginning of Alan, Ahmad Wakid and Saad Abdillah profound production plant. Assisted by years of strong experiences and complimented by the most advanced technologies in its field, they have become the leading expert in topnotch quality, ready-to-consume bird nest throughout Indonesia.
