A Message From the Founder
A Message From the Founder
The vision of an entrepreneur a decade prior
Bird’s nest has always been a well-known Asian delicacy. The popularity of this exotic delicacy is not unfounded for, as it is known to bring ample health benefits. Since the early 2010s, I have noticed the vast supply chasm in the global supply chain for edible bird’s nest, better known as EBN, to meet the global demand. The industry is expected to reach USD278.96 billion by 2021.
From 2012 to 2015, we have assertively generated more supplies through production, manufacturing, and trading of EBNs, and have successfully made a name in the global arena. In other words, we have organically built a sustainable EBN ecosystem, creating many job opportunities, and on a steady race to meet the global demands. Driven by our drive for growth, exceptional teamwork, and visionary leaders, we have seen excessive progress since then.
The future of EBN
In 2017, we began creating our own demand for EBN by crafting a line of personal care products with our patented invention that reverse the effects of aging and exuberate the youthful skin of our customers.
We will bring these fantastic products through direct retailing. Penta Harvest is designed as the fastest way to engage with our customers while empowering them to be part of the success story.
Words of appreciation
Of course, all the growth and successes would not be possible without the team, our partners, and the loyal customers that have been with us throughout the journey. Therefore, I am taking this opportunity to thank everyone who made it possible.
