Blue Archipelago Berhad (BAB) has become recognised as a touchstone of excellence in aquaculture quality, sustainability and social impact. Their impact is mirrored in the horticultural sector by Monoluxury Sdn Bhd (Monoluxury), a company that has leveraged best-in-class farming innovation to become a supermarket staple across Malaysia and Singapore under the brands of “Genting Garden” and “Lushious”.
A fully-owned subsidiary of Khazanah, BAB operates from their two farms in Kerpan, Kedah and Setiu, Terengganu, where they are one of the largest local employers, providing meaningful and long-term job opportunities for many within the low income bracket. BAB also strives to upskill their workforce through purpose-fit training modules, empowering team members to become skilled workers and secure better livelihoods for their families, thereby creating positive multipliers within their local communities.
Apart from meeting the nation’s demand for quality shrimp products, BAB maintains an export presence under the brand “Pelagos”, which is trusted in major Asian markets such as China and Japan. In upholding Malaysia’s reputation for quality in seafood products and driving their competitiveness in their export markets, BAB holds multiple local and international accreditations which include Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP), Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) and Malaysian Good Agricultural Practices Scheme (MyGAP), certifying the standards they uphold in product safety, quality and sustainability.
Underscoring their firm commitment to sustainability, BAB ensures that water pumped back into the sea after use maintains water treatment standards that exceed national regulatory requirements. Furthermore, BAB is today the only aquaculture facility in Malaysia and ASEAN with a dedicated Industrial Effluent Treatment System (IETS), highlighting their industry leadership position in wastewater treatment.
The approach in having a world-class standard for quality is consistent with our investment in Monoluxury, one of the leading salad and herbs producers in Singapore and Malaysia. The company upholds world-class planting standards by minimising fertiliser usage, increasing adoption of automation, particularly for its greenhouses, and continuously investing in sustainable packaging. Monoluxury operates from Genting Highlands and Cameron Highlands, with a majority local workforce, of which 20% are from the Orang Asli community.
