State of Sarawak:
Malaysian rambutan misses out on seasonal demand in foreign marketsThis season, the Malaysian state of Sarawak is losing out to its South East Asian neighbours because its ‘Anak Sekolah’ rambutan ripened after the Christmas celebrations. Every year, European buyers have placed orders for rambutan and mangosteen, as exotic fruits for Christmas meals.
“Unfortunately, the rambutan from Sarawak were not yet available at that time,” Mohd Noh Sani, proprietor of DRS Trading Sdn Bhd, told The Borneo Post. The demand for the exotic fruit is all-year round but peaks during Christmas holidays.
Meanwhile, Federal Agriculture Marketing Authority (Fama) deputy director of operations Abdul Jaafar Lian revealed that they had bought more than 60 tonnes of Anak Sekolah rambutan from Sri Aman this season. “On average, we are sending at least 2 tonnes per week to Kuala Lumpur and 1.5 tonnes to Sabah per week,” he said.
