Our Aquatic Plants
It’s our goal for all our aquatic plants to be grown under the highest standards of quality. There are 2 plant production facilities on 16 acres of land located in Malaysia, and the main packing facility is located in Singapore. With more than 48 years of experience, we have developed a proprietary packaging system to ensure that our aquatic plants are shipped and received in its best conditions.
Our Ornamental Fishes
Re-shipment preparation and packing of ornamental fish are located at our Singapore facility. These include quarantine, quality assurance, phyto-sanitary certification and fish health certification. In collaboration with the transport companies we use, we have established an efficient distribution system which is vital when dealing with livestock. Our proprietary packaging system protects our ornamental fishes from extreme temperature variations and physical impact during transportation.
