The Malay Businessmen and Industrialists Association of Malaysia (Perdasama) regretted that some hypermarkets placed Bumiputera-manufactured products in a back section where there is little customer movement, resulting in creating a Bumiputra Corner.

Hypermarkets have to cater for shoppers' need in buying quality and value-for-money stuff.
Why must they waste prime space for inferior products which are not sell-able?

Outlets charge u and i a listing fee to have our products out there. Many local products are listed with very minimum or zero listing fee, as part of the IKA's response to the gomen call...

No sane bizzmen will give you hot spots when they can charge money and still see the products flying off like hot bananagoreng...

Blur sotongs brand owners/manufacturers want help in everything for free...including my services! hahahahahah! tunggu lah.


Yang Boleh Negotiate 4lower listing fee latotupai :D :D

Like the pharmacy chains, they get more from selling shelf space than the profits from product sale..

As commented by a reader :-
If they want the front end, just pay for the place. The retailers are not discriminating against nobody as long as it sells. Stop blaming others for your incompetence.

In Sabah, native crafts were initially made by the locals but the supply was not consistent and souvenir shops always run out of supply.

Nowadays, there is no such problem.

Sabah Crafts are Made In China...better quality and cheaper and never short of supply.

Perdasama may want to know where the fault is.

Would they penalize those hypermarts that are not giving priorities to the BP products by giving them prime front of the line selling space? Or introduce special taxes to hike up the prices of non BP products so that others might be more expensive thus less competitive? Somewhat like Proton? :eek:

What makes things worse is that the foreign hypermarkets have to carry a larger selection of Malaysian local products, while the local hypermarkets dont have the same expectation placed upon them>

It is really sad but that's the reality if you do things half heartedly....all you have to do is to peel off the Made In China label.

Such a shame to call themselves BUSINESSMEN and INDUSTRIALISTS and yet do not know the workings of super and hyper retail chain outlets. Everything also expected to be handed on a silver platter... tak malukah?

Ever square inch of space in the supermarket is worth some money and different products are displayed for different reasons - some as "loss leaders" to attract the crowd etc and suppliers need to pay for these spaces to jostle for the right positioning...

If you want to be in front, bayar lah buat apa bising bising complain aje... like this you call yourself INDUSTRIALIST kah?

not sure if u guys ever accidently switched channel to RTM1, but sometimes u can see programs on how the kampung industry works. Groups of makciks sitting on floor, packing types of food on plastics and then sealing them in the most time consuming way....

I was visiting a 'keropok' factory on the east coast and hey, this is THE biggest one in the entire east coast and guess what, they were flipping the keropok being dried in the sun one by one using the hand.... I guess its still cottage industry mentality.... when they hear a beverage canning line able to produce 2,250 cpm (cans per minute) they will ask you "buat apa laju laju?"

there is actually nothing wrong with this start-up cottage industry. Many
big local brands started that way. Ask the yeohiapseng, the life sauces, julie biscuits, berry's choc etcet there are plenty of successful local brands out there.

Without initial start-up capital but with enuff commitment, passion, patience, hard work, integrity and honesty in your dealings, you will grow slowly but surely.

The short cut to expansionary route will come when the products gain consumer acceptance. Then and only then, the cottage 'industrialists' can get bizz-loan (hopefully low interest rate) to further expand/modernise their production. Running in tandem would be the pre-planned marketing objectives/strategies and a comprehensive route to market penetration...the marketing book "4-Ps for idiots' would be useful. :D

IMHO, the group is just asking for another "short-cut" to business and market share :( Slogging against the giants, gaining market acceptance and recognition are too slow and painful a process for those who wants to "get-rich-quick" ;) After all, they EXPECT to drive BMW 7 series and not for their grandchildren !! :D

Many get business loan to get new beaming BMW as to further enhance image as part of marketing strategies and a complete route to self penetration. That is the short cut to look successful in this bolehland.

better quality but wont last long.

Most tourists buy smaller items and the locals just couldn't keep up with the demands. So such items are Made In China. If they are of better quality, they will last longer.

For items like mats, wooden timbers that are locally made, you will find tiny tiny creatures in them. These items are hard to pass by the Australian Customs. These items are most likely end up in the Quarantine before you can bring them back to your house.

U don't see local non-bumiputra enterprises crying foul, they will find their way to swim with the sharks and not get eaten.... We all know that in business world, it's all about survival of the fittest and adapting to the ever changing environment...
They should stop blaming others for their under-performance, look what they can improve from within...

Very true, me too will only buy things that meet quality and price expectation.

The exception is when the purchase is to help certain group who want to help other unfortunately people, like charitable groups.

Definitely not to those who think people owe them a living !! :mad:

Bumiputra Laboratory? To meet their needs? Seems like again the Chinese, Indian and other non-bumi are neglected.From the article itself...


A specific laboratory is to draw up within six weeks beginning February recommendations on how the government can tailor the National Key Result Areas (NKRAs) programmes to meet the needs of the bumiputeras in Sabah and Sarawak ......

Idris reportedly said in Kuching last weekend that Sabah and Sarawak would have their own development model with the setting up of a laboratory to make modifications to have the programmes implemented effectively in the two states.

The concept achieved more effective results when it was applied in the case of the Orang Asli community, he said.

"As I said before, the same goes for the bumiputeras as there are some specific peculiarities in Sabah and Sarawak and we must not ignore that. If we want to succeed in the implementation, we must tailor the programmes so that they meet the requirements there.As said before, if people are in genuine need of economic support and opportunities, give it to them...but dont discriminate by race or you end up with the er...disappointing situation that we are facing now.
