WW, of course there are still tons of unprocessed EBN in China.
It is just that the Chinese Government has put a blanket ban on all raw EBN, even the returning tourist are not allowed to bring any in, whether from Malaysia, HK or anywhere else.
On the other hand, China will allow the importation of processed, ready to consume EBN products. Companies like Eu Yan Sang will benefit.
These products have to be certified by the exporting countries, which is standard practise for food items.
What I'm saying is that this will allow all certified manufacturers of foodstuffs in Malaysia to export ready prepared, ready to eat, EBN products. There are very many such companies in Malaysia with the proper certification.
With this in mind, it makes no difference whether the raw EBN is in whatever shape or size. There are machines capable of cleaning very dirty nests, though with greater loss, but in the finished product, ie the EBN concoction, the cleanliness, size or colour of the raw nest will be indistinguishable. So, all nests will be useable.
You may note that there are buyers for dirty nests at about $500/kg. with about 50% loss or sometimes more after cleaning, that will translate to about $1k + per kg of equivalent cleaner nests. There are already several manufacturers already making EBN concoction from these cheaper nests. Of course the cleaner the nest the less the loss in cleaning.
I would love to invest in Thailand, pretty ladies and lovely food but foreigners are not allowed to own land.As for Cambodia, the risks are too high. I would have to join the local Mafia for protection and dodge the occasional bullet and landmine
Cambodia is not as bad as what u think now la lol especially the dodging of bullet and landmine
dont need hire mafia... just partner and have some connection with some big shot general here would be more than sufficient
even the biggest mafia are afraid of the generals here...
