Sitiawan, Perak, is the pioneer town of the country’s bird’s nest business. Swiftlet breeders rear swiftlets in old farm houses and harvest their nests, and then sell their products through agents, a model that has persisted till this day.

In 1998, Tan Yoke Tian, originally a poultry farm operator, entered the swiftlet rearing business, and began trading unprocessed bird’s nest in 2001. In 2004, he ventrued into bird’s nest processing business, which started as a small family operation before it expanded gradually.

In 2001, Tan Wooi Chong, an accountancy graduate from Sunway College, returned to his hometown and founded Moh Kee Bird’s Nest Trading upon the foundation of his father’s bird nest business. Leveraging on his professional training, Tan built a successful brand that has taken his business overseas.

He expand into the market quickly, gaining footholds in Guangzhou, China and Surabaya, Indonesia in quick succession. In 2008, he built a bird’s nest processing plant in Surabaya.
