Sarawak will implement its first project under the Bioeconomy Community Development Programme (BCDP) that will see a new biofeed manufacturing facility being developed in Mukah. The project is expected to promote the growth of the animal and aqua feed industry by converting fish waste and sago waste into high value protein additives. A memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed between Biotechnology Diversified Industries Sdn Bhd and local fisherman and sago smallholders to produce the animal and aqua feed. The BCDP will help realise the long term targets of the national Bioeconomy Transformation Programme to achieve RM48 billion in gross national income, create 170,000 jobs and attract RM50 billion in investment by 2020.
