Khanh Hoa Salanganes Nest Company was set up on November 9, 1990 to manage, exploit and develop salanganes nests. After 25 years of development, the company has made remarkable development steps and secured its good name in both domestic and international markets. Its swiftlet nest products are recognised for having top-quality bird’s nests in the world because of especially high nutritional value. From valuable natural nutritious ingredients, the company has turned out premium products imbued with profound traditional identity, community-centred value and health-boosting properties.
At first, Khanh Hoa Salanganes Nest Company managed and protected eight swiftlet islands with 40 swiftlet caves in Nha Trang Bay. By successfully deploying migration and reproduction methods, the company managed 32 swiftlet islands with 169 caves from Van Ninh district to Cam Ranh City to become the largest producer of natural bird’s nests in Asia. Besides, the company always pays attention to scientific research, technical innovation, protection, tending, exploitation and processing of bird’s nests in order to serve the company’s development strategy, as well as contribute to the overall development of Vietnamese bird’s nest industry. Notably, as climate change and expansive urbanisation are impacting the habitat and foraging range of salanganes, the company has invested to install mist-spraying systems, create food sources for birds, build breakwaters and pressure-reducing nets, build dens and shades for birds, enhance natural nest quality and develop new swiftlet caves and islands.
Not only protecting salanganes and control input supplies, Khanh Hoa Salanganes Nest Company strictly applies international quality standards to production such as ISO 9001, HACCP, ISO 14001, FDA, HALAL and export certifications to Canada and Australia. The firm is also very keen on building and protecting the brand name, registering intellectual property rights and trademark protection in many countries around the world. In addition, the concern regards the corporate culture as the foundation for sustainable development. Therefore, the company always cherishes the tradition of bird nest industry and appreciates the dedication of its employees.
To date, the company has created more than 40 premium bird’s nest products with high nutritional value for domestic and international markets. The firm is expanding its operations in 63 provinces and cities nationwide with more than 1,000 distributors and dealers, and exported its products to 21 countries and territories around the world such as China, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, the US, Japan, Australia, Laos, Cambodia and Singapore.
With its efforts and achievements in the past 25 years, Khanh Hoa Salanganes Nest Company was honoured with various titles and awards such as Labour Hero in the renovation period, First-class Labour Order, the National Quality Gold Award, Vietnam Golden Food Brand, Top 100 ASEAN Well-known Award, Top 10 ASEAN Green Award, and Vietnam High Quality Goods Award. Particularly, the ASEAN Business Awards 2016 (ABA 2016) held on the sidelines of ASEAN Summit in Vientiane (Laos), the company beat many ASEAN businesses to secure the ASEAN Biggest Company Award in the community health care category.
Those prizes are motivational for the company to increase investment in research and development of the best bird’s nest products for consumers. Mr Le Huu Hoang, President of the Board of Members, said Khanh Hoa Salanganes Nest Company will continue to carry out corporate restructuring and build an Eastern-styled salangane village where ecological tourism will be included. The concern will develop a new swiftlet cave system in Khanh Hoa province from Van Ninh district to Cam Ranh in 2014-2020. In addition, the company will focus on strengthening cooperation with domestic and international scientists to perform profound studies on edible bird nests. Successful research will be widely applied to new swiftlet islands along coastal provinces of Vietnam to develop the potential and profitable salangane farming to elevate Vietnam’s position in bird nest export in the world. In its development plan, Khanh Hoa Salanganes Nest Company will build bird nest-based medical processing plants, bird-nest beauty salons, and 4-star Sanest Khanh Hoa Hotel and Song Cau Industrial Park. The firm will develop the brand of Khanh Hoa salanganes nests into a national brand and boost cooperation in scientific research with ASEAN countries. The company will continue to administer its affiliated entities and subsidiaries to optimise production and business performance and uphold its strong brand position in domestic and international markets.
