The insatiable appetite of Chinese everywhere for bird nests has spawned a multi million ringgit swiflets farming business in Malaysia.
During the early years of last century, bird nests were collected from the caves. As the years progresses and with demand for bird nests increasing, more and more people became aware of swiftlet farming.
At Aeroswift the journey of building birdhouses for swiftlets began 15 years ago using conventional approach in attracting wild swiftlets into birdhouses. The birdhouses are specially designed to emulate the swiftlets natural dwelling environment by accommodating 5 core elements – cave like darkness, temperature, humidity, odor and sounds of bird calls.
Today, Aeroswift has pioneered a leading edge farming concept that is designed not only aimed at hosting wild swiftlets but essentially breed and domesticate a new colony of swiftlets. The innovative proposition in development by Aeroswift brings tremendous benefits in providing a balance of farming practices in eco-friendly environment, paving the impetus towards sustainable and holistic approach in conservation of this valuable habitat.
