Durian may be one of the smelliest fruits in the world, but it is known as the ‘King of fruits’ across Asia due to its large size, crown-like thorns and delicious taste.
As the demand for durian is rising around the world, Agroforestry Group’s (AFG) Musang King Durian programme in Malaysia has become one of the organisation’s leading businesses. Increasing demand is due to international markets becoming more familiar with durian, particularly in Australia, North America and Europe. This made Musang King durian extremely profitable when exported, with the selling price up to ten times larger than when sold domestically in Malaysia. As a result, the Agroforestry Groups ownership programme was created to target more profitable international markets.
Agroforestry Group is proactively engaged across the entire industry, also focusing on agarwood also known as Aquilaria, managed by AFG Agarwood, a Malaysian Sdn Bhd plantation management company. In addition to specialised Aquilaria plantations aimed at reforestation, AFG uses Aquilaria trees as intercrops across its durian plantations, yielding high-quality herbal tea and coffee.
Agroforestry Group is a registered company in Malaysia through the SSM, and is led by CEO Paul Martin. He brings the group a plethora of knowledge and skills from his past work in financial businesses across Asia. He has substantial financial sector expertise, having worked as a stockbroker and a thriving market trader in the City of London for 12 years. Eight other core team members are behind him, including Daud bin Jaffar as AFG Director, a Malaysian native with over 30 years of expertise in insurance for individual, corporate, and government clients. He has substantial expertise in various businesses, having served as a director and shareholder in multiple firms in the logistics, construction, medical, publishing, and food industries. Mr Jaffar aids the group in its transactions with appropriate governmental authorities through his established network of contacts.
Agroforestry Group comprises various subsidiaries and affiliated firms that specialise in multiple elements of its operations. AFG collaborates with municipal and corporate partners such as banks, colleges, and regulatory organisations. Agroforestry Group Limited, incorporated in Hong Kong, is AFG’s primary asset holding company, which houses their plantation assets, such as land and structures. Agroforestry Group Limited also issues land leasing agreements to their clients and other affiliated firms.
AFG recently faced some ‘Agroforestry Group scam‘ comments online. It was found that competitors fabricated negative reviews and employed deceitful marketing practices to harm Agroforestry Groups’ reputation. As a result, AFG has publicly encouraged existing and future investors to exercise extreme caution when dealing with similar businesses. They have also published a list of safety criteria on their website for evaluating businesses, warning them of phishing and blackmail sites.
