Durian is regarded by many people in Southeast Asia as “The King of Fruits”. Considered a delicacy across Asia, its appeal has been growing enormously with new Durian based products continuously being developed. Major global companies such as Nestle, McDonalds, F&N and Pizza Hut have all released Durian based products in an effort to capture this growing consumer product segment. With the establishment of Durian Harvests, Plantations International and United Tropical Fruit will be at the forefront of this ever-expanding durian investment market and ideally positioned to service the needs of China’s underdeveloped, underexposed and rapidly growing Durian market. Plantations International also has agarwood Plantations in Thailand Indonesia and Malaysia.
