About Our Bird Nest
In Southeast Asia, bird’s nest is categorized into two types, namely “cave bird’s nest” and “house bird’s nest”. It is scientifically proven that cave bird’s nest and house bird’s nest are only different insignificantly in the nutritional value, containing same primary nutritional values.
But in our company view, the only difference between “cave bird’s nest” and “house bird’s nest” is the environment factor. Firstly, “cave bird’s nest” are produced by the swiftlets which live in the caves together with other wild animals such as lizards, wild bats and so on. Wild animals will produce urea in the caves and the urea might affects the purity and food hygiene of the “cave bird’s nest”. The “cave bird’s nest” are also not taken care of properly so its cleanliness and purity cannot be guarantee. Meanwhile, the “house bird’s nest” are taken good care by the people and the swiflets stay in a human-made house. The bird nest’s houses under “BAI LENG YEN” are given good care by our company management team and the workers are instructed to follow the Standard Operation Procedure (SOP) to clean the bird nest’s houses. By following the SOP strictly, our bird nest’s houses are qualified based on the requirements stated in the SOP from the aspects of cleanliness and quality. By following the SOP, we are confidence that our “house bird’s nest” are high quality and fresh. As our bird nest’s houses are following the SOP strictly, we are awarded the MYGAP certificate from the Veterinary Department Malaysia. This proved that our raw bird nests fulfilled the hygiene requirements from the department.
“BAI LENG YEN” produces a series of bird’s nest products 100% from house swiftlets which are halal-certified by the Malaysian government (Halal Food Certification).
With strong experienced expert teams, “BAI LENG YEN” is capable of producing stable “high-purity bird’s nest” products in the long run.
Our Bird Houses
In order to ensure that the pure bird’s nest are in the highest quality, Bai Leng Yen only obtains raw bird’s nest from own swiftlet farms and also selected qualified swiftlet farms. Most of our swiftlet farms were built and designed by constructor and consultant experts, which are situated in agriculture land far from cities and town where environment factors are taken into consideration. Each of our staff are professionally trained to manage the swiftlet farms. After the young swiftlets have left their nests, only then we will harvest the bird’s nest as this is to protect the swiftlets and ensure the continuous breeding of swiftlets. By following the management operation procedure, we can assure our customers that the farms are always clean so that the harvested bird’s nests are of the highest purity and quality.
Diligence and care is the key to maintain the environment for the living and breeding of the swiftlets. The internal environment is crucial to provide suitable habitat for swiftlets to continue the breeding process and to produce high quality edible bird’s nest. Thorough and continuous checking and maintaining the equipment is done consistently to ensure functionality as well as to protect the encroachment of predators such as lizards so as not to affect the quality of the bird’s nest. Therefore, we are proud to say that our swiftlet farms are certified by the VHM such as MyGAP. Hence, bird’s nest produced from our swiftlet farms are among the finest with minimal impurities, authentic colour and of highest quality.
