Since Tang Dynasty (A.D. 618-907) nearly 1500 years ago, ancestors discovered the secret of edible bird nest. According to many documented historical data, it was brought to China from Southeast Asia region by Admiral Cheng Ho more than 500 years ago. It was considered a supreme delicacy and exclusively consumed by the Chinese royalties and court officials to maintain health, beauty and youth.
Persatuan Penternak Burung Walit Malaysia was established in 2012 to support and defend the rights of the bird nest ranchers. This nation wide association is supported by members from bird nest industry throughout the country.
