The DSR Group is planning to expand its Musang King durian orchards to 202.3 hectares by 2025, as export sales are returning to normal. The group also wants to cater to the expected rise in demand for its downstream durian products.
Co-founder Datuk Ng Lian Poh said the expected costs for the crop expansion vary, especially for matured orchards and it depends on market demand and supply. Currently, the DSR Group, which was set up in 2017, has allocated one-third of its durian supply for the domestic market, while the remaining quantity will cater to the international markets.
According to malaymail.com, the group also aims to distribute downstream durian products to the overseas markets via Daily Fresh Foods Group in the near future.
