OUR SERVICES

  1. Quarantine and Nursery Centres.

Borneo Rainforest Vanilla Sdn Bhd has already established two quarantine and nursery centres in Sarawak – one in Miri and another in Kuching – in order to serve our clients effectively. All the quarantine and nursery centres were built according to official specification and regulations and have been approved by the Department of Agriculture Sarawak. Each nursery can accommodate up to 55,000 vanilla seedlings at any one time. Together we can stock 110,000 seedlings at any one time throughout the State to cater for our own and demands from the public.

Our nursery in Miri is also producing seedlings for stevia, the herb from which the zero-calorie sweetener is produced. This nursery can hold 50,000 seedlings at any time although seedlings will only be produced upon confirmed order from clients. Our nursery in Miri is the first and only nursery for stevia in Sarawak to date.  We also supply planting materials for those interested in planting Aquilaria (karas / gaharu) trees.

We work closely with our industrial partners and relevant government authorities including institute of higher learning and research in Malaysia in order to produce highest quality and healthy vanilla, stevia and Aquilaria tree planting materials. This is consistent with our objective of producing sufficient vanilla seedlings bred under safe and controlled environment so that its cultivation is not harmful to the local environment. Health and safety of our local environment is given prime consideration in our industrial pursuits.
