Terminal Agribisnes Negara or better known as TEMAN in Gopeng, Perak, is said to be the country’s first largest fresh food centre. However, since its launch at the end of last year, business is still slack according to wholesalers operating from TEMAN. This national agri-business terminal only became fully operational in early January, 2011.
It could be because the market, separated into different sections, is too huge that it’s not suitable for household marketing; it’s more viable for those in the hotel, restaurant and catering (HORECA) business.
Even so, Federal Agricultural Marketing Authority (FAMA), who owns TEMAN, is working hard to turn business around and there are plenty of activities lined up, usually on weekends. After spending RM110 million planning and constructing TEMAN, it would be a pity if it ends up a white elephant.
Here is TEMAN’s calendar of events for April and May, 2011.
Agromas Products Demo & Food Taste Testing – 30th April to 1st May 2011 and 7th May to 29th May 2011
