The business of selling dates in Malaysia is a very popular one, and there are many Malaysia based companies that take advantage of this fact. They buy the whole lot as is from the growers, prepare the meat, wrap it up nicely and sell it off as per their requirements to their local retailers and restaurants, who in turn, sell them on to the customers. This is a booming industry in Malaysia and a booming market for local retailers too.
A good example of a company that buys the whole lot of date from the farmers and then sells them off to the consumers is the Bad Mas plant products.
