Electronic grading, labelling and packaging of agricultural products

The agricultural industry in Malaysia is administered by a regulation encompassing Grading, Labelling and Packaging.

Initiated by the Federal Agricultural Marketing Authority (FAMA) of Malaysia, the regulation requires that all agricultural produce are graded, packaged and labelled according to international standards before they are marketed, exported or imported.

Dagang Net, in collaboration with FAMA, developed eCerts – an online portal that facilitates electronic Grading, Labelling and Packaging processes.

Before this system, agricultural traders had to visit designated FAMA offices to register their business and obtain clearances for their produce.

With eCerts, these manual processes are now completed electronically. Moreover, the portal helps traders not only comply with regulation but provide them with a competitive edge when marketing their produce overseas as well.
