The Outcomes of J*FIsH Project
The J*FIsH success in creating a dynamic agrobusiness community in the rural area and in promoting a sharing economy among the villagers is best highlighted by case studies. For this purpose, eight out of the fourteen participants who are involved in various agrobusiness sub-sectors were selected as case studies to showcase their progress and achievements since signing up for the project.
The J*FIsH Project: Driving Community Development and Sharing Economy Model
The J*FIsH Model is a novel and comprehensive approach in developing a sharing economy where the trickle-down effect gives everyone in the community an opportunity to prosper and excel. By obtaining the MyGAP Certification and/or Halal Certification, project participants have enhanced their productivity levels, product quality, marketability, and cash flow. The internationally recognised certifications have transformed the operators into forward-looking and global standard farms/enterprises. The IBE model has not only turned the once traditional farmers/enterprises into successful agro-food entrepreneurs, it has also promoted a sharing economy that utilises and boosts local talent and workforce, and enablesavailable natural resources to be utilised more effectively. Collaboration (ukhwah) among local agrofood producers including local and external communities has infused a global thinking and attitude, and inculcated a strategic and result oriented mindset. Armed with international standards certifications coupled with IBE Model Application, the farmers/entrepreneurs are ready to explore the global market market place which is part of the key phases /stages of business maturity level of the MAI Qcs Maturity Model ™ -Mr. Ishar Omar, Managing & Principal Consultant, MAI Q Consult & Services

During these past years, THKD has taken several quality initiatives to upgrade its services, among which is to address the critical issue of difficult admission for outpatients.

The online system made it easier for management to keep track of the reports in real-time as well since the reports can be extracted anywhere and anytime.

A Green Haven For All
Surrounded by abundant beauty of nature, the award-winning eco-resort was built to work with nature and not against it. According to Chan, not a single tree was cut to accommodate the development. Likewise, its surrounding lake and landscape have been left undisturbed. Swimming and fishing in the lake—except on rare occasions and under strictly controlled conditions—are prohibited by the management of The Haven. This is to allow the ecosystem of the lake to thrive naturally. With plenty of fish swimming in its waters, The Haven’s lake has attracted otters to choose the lake as their habitat.
A Haven on Earth in Ipoh
“Everything we do is done with CSR in mind. We think about how we can help others. Our employees, our guests, our community. You can think of it as a kind of social service, one that is honest and integrity-based. You see, when you do things for yourself, it is self-serving. But when you do the opposite and serve others, it becomes different. That’s why we always aim to benefit others and in doing so we can do extraordinarily well.” Peter Chan, Chief Executive Officer, The Haven Ipoh

Lean encourages staff to improve the work they are involved in – by improving process and reducing delays in services to patients.” Ms Tio Bee Chan, Chief Executive Officer, Pantai Hospital Sungai Petani
