It all began with 500 chickens Mr Tai Kok Kong, Founder of ZENXIN Organic Food has.
Being the successful agriculturist he is, Mr Tai Kok Kong ventured into the composting business in 1999 when he found himself with a lot more compost than he bargained for. The environmentalist in him did not want to resort to dumping chicken manure and polluting the ground.
At that time, organic farming was few and far in between in Malaysia. Only a handful knew soil science or how compost can greatly improve soil quality. Armed with what little knowledge he had about composting, Mr Tai Kok Kong explored this new field with open mindedness and a keen eye, as he learned of ways to upcycle chicken manure.
Providence has it that on one of his trips to Cameron Highlands, Mr Tai Kok Kong was introduced to practices of organic farming. When he tasted organic produce, it was to his great surprise and indeed——– pure joy as he found that long-lost flavour of cabbage he fondly remembers from his childhood. Intrigued by what he tasted, he bought a full load of organic cabbage, packed them in his car and distributed these to all of his friends in Kluang town. It was on this important day that the seed of ZENXIN took root. And as they say, the rest is history.
Driven by passion, determination and strong people skills, Mr Tai Kok Kong grew ZENXIN to become one of the leading organic food companies in Asia. ZENXIN or 诚兴, in Chinese, denotes sincerity and honesty. Taken together, these qualities lead ZENXIN to prosperity and success.
Simple as this may sound, this is at the backbone of ZENXIN’s business philosophy, steadily guiding ZENXIN ever forwards.
