Malaysia is a country located in South East Asia that has borders with Thailand in West Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei in East Malaysia. It‘s one of the mega diverse countries that has a very rich biodiversity. It‘s main attractions include the world‘s oldest lush tropical rainforest, beautiful white sandy beaches and rare animals like the Orang Utan. A former British colony, Malaysia gained it‘s independence on 31st August 1957 and since then it has undergone rapid growth and industrialization to become a modern state it is today.

Home to almost 30 million citizens of multi religious and cultural background , it has one of the highest per capita egg consumption in the south-east asian region, with 300 eggs per person.

The egg industry in Malaysia has grown exponentially over the years after the country experienced an economic boom in the 80‘s, and the egg industry has transited from backyard poultry farming into the modern production system it is today.

The Malaysian egg market is made up of 97% brown eggs and about 3% tinted eggs. The consumers and producers here prefer dark uniform egg shell colours with a good egg shell quality. Lohmann Tierzucht is proud to be a part of the Malaysian egg market growth and, since 1997, Huat Lai Resources Berhad is our longstanding, loyal customer and distributor of Lohmann Brown commercial layer day old chicks. Lohmann‘s market share in the Malaysian market started at 3% in 1997. Currently, it‘s at 31%, an increase of more than 10 fold in the period of 20 years.
