Lennex Technologies is a leading company in the agriculture and animal husbandry industries with a proven track record of success since its establishment in 2013. Our high-caliber shareholders have provided us with a solid financial foundation, enabling us to pursue new growth opportunities with confidence.
We are excited to offer a unique investment opportunity to our investors: a fund dedicated to cultivating and selling the highest quality local durians for both domestic and international markets. Our team boasts extensive expertise in durian cultivation management, and we are assured of our capability to generate substantial returns for our investors.
Insufficient Durian Supply
Durians, known as the “king of all fruits”, are highly prized globally, particularly in Southeast Asia where they are traditionally grown. As the demand for high-quality Malaysian durians continues to rise, the durian industry is becoming increasingly attractive for exporters in Malaysia. However, the country's annual output of 405,000 tonnes falls short of meeting the global demand, causing prices to rise as high as RM80 per kg.
Our research has revealed that the underdevelopment of Malaysian durian plantations is due to several factors including soil type, weather conditions, and costly plantation management practices that can disrupt the production of premium durian breeds such as the Musang King (D197) and Black Thorn (D200). In addition, durian plantations require more care and management compared to other crops like rubber and palm oil, which can be a deterrent for local durian producers due to the high costs involved.
Lennex Technologies plans to optimize the production of Musang King (D197) and Black Thorn (D200) durians through the use of innovative agri-technologies such as drone surveillance, remote data access, data analytics, and a sustainable and eco-friendly soil nutrition regime. We will also ensure the safety and quality of our product by closely monitoring our durian plantations and following the MyGap certificate standards set by the Department of Agriculture Malaysia.
In addition, we will adopt the latest industry best practices and production tools as recommended by Haji Lokman, a renowned durian master grower, and certified by the Federal Agricultural Marketing Authorities (FAMA). This includes implementing the double planting method to increase production and reduce the fertility risk of non-performing trees, as well as using 100% organic fertilizers. By implementing these strategies, we aim to efficiently and sustainably meet the growing global demand for high-quality Malaysian durians.
At Lennex Technologies, we take a cutting-edge approach to farming management. Our innovative technology allows us to continuously monitor our durian plantations, ensuring that the durian harvest is maximized.
Our focus is on increasing the production of Musang King and Black Thorn Durians through the use of agri-technologies such as drone monitoring, remote data access, data analytics, and a sustainable and environmentally friendly soil nutrition regime.
In addition to comprehensive durian plantation management, our team of experts offer professional services specifically tailored to the durian industry. We keep our clients informed about the latest market developments and provide industry-specific market research studies to help us constantly improve and plan for the future. We also use this research to develop new high-end durian products based on flavor, paste, and other factors.
Our main customers for agricultural marketing practices are those who purchase and consume farm produce. We have established a strong partnership with the Federal Agricultural Marketing Authority (FAMA) and have supplied local supermarkets with our products, earning the trust of local consumers.
In the agriculture industry, we aim to increase the marketability and customer relationships of our products. Our target customers include durian wholesalers, manufacturers, and retailers. We also plan to explore foreign markets, such as China, as we aim to export our durian products internationally. By focusing on building strong relationships with both local and international customers, we hope to drive demand and success in the durian industry.
Lennex Technologies operates and manages its own durian farm. It takes approximately 6-7 years for durian trees to bear fruit, and a tree that is 6-10 years old can produce up to 150 fruits per year. By year six, we expect the plantation to be self-sustaining, with annual yields ranging from 20-30%. These yields will continue to increase as the durian trees mature.
Our goal is to optimize the growth and yield of our durian produce while providing secure, reliable investment opportunities through an easy-to-use platform on our website, accessible on both desktop and mobile devices. We believe that this business model will allow us to meet the growing demand for high-quality Malaysian durians both domestically and internationally.
The global durian trade is currently dominated by two countries: China leads in imports while Thailand leads in exports, followed by Malaysia. In 2020, China imported a total of 575,672 metric tonnes of durians, accounting for 76.1% of global imports. The Chinese market for durians is rapidly growing, with most imported durians coming from Thailand. Other major import markets include Hong Kong, Taipei, Singapore, and the United States.
The Asia-Pacific region is not only the top producer of durians, but also the largest consumer, with China leading the way. Durian consumption in China has been growing at an average annual rate of more than 16% between 2010 and 2019. There is a high demand for the creamy texture of the Malaysian Musang King variety and the Mon Thong variety in China. In 2018, China accounted for 65.0% of overall import value, importing 431,940.0 metric tonnes of fresh durians, compared to 224,382.0 metric tonnes in 2017.
The Asia-Pacific region has a strong presence in the fresh durian industry, with Thailand and Malaysia being major producers. Thailand exported 496,915 metric tonnes of fresh durians in 2018, a significant increase from the 486,730 metric tonnes exported in 2017 and the 402,660 metric tonnes exported in 2016. Thailand has a significant transportation advantage when it comes to exporting fresh durians to China, the world's largest durian importer, which has allowed the country to increase its production to meet the demand for exports.
Despite Malaysia's strong growth in durian exports, Thailand remains the dominant player in the global durian market, supplying over 90% of world durian exports. The global durian trade is expected to reach $35 billion by 2030.
Lennex Technologies aims to raise RM 3,000,000 (RM 3 million) in funds for the development and maintenance of 4 acres of durian plantation through pitchIN.
➢ To plant 2000 acres of Musang King and Black Thorn in 10 years
➢ To produce high-quality yields of Musang King and Black Thorn durians and to produce more high-end products
➢ To develop research and development of durian plantations in Malaysia
➢ To fulfill local and foreign durian market
