SAIP is a technology precinct that serves as an enabler/platform for the development of agro-based industry focusing on food and specialty crops/natural products, and driven by technological processing innovation and R&D. 215 acres of land area in Kimanis, Papar.

Development on Phase 2 (2012-13): the Post Harvest Handling & Collection Center (PHHCC – Product Line Facility & Cold Room) & Controlled Environment Farming (CEF) Project, a JV with BIA and SLDB would plant Chili, Tomato and Rock Melon (10 acres). These fresh produce would be processed and delivered to consumer (via PHHCC, capacity 50 tone/year), stored in cold storage or further processed into value added products (PHHCC-PLF).

Apart from JV BIA/SLDB, foreign investors Dar Seng Agriculture Co. Ltd. Taiwan (high-tech planting) and MES Co. Korea (packaging/green tech) are serious to invest (setting up plant) in SAIP. Pop Grapes Enzymes Sdn Bhd and other local companies interested to participate in the PLF producing value added products (medicinal enzymes, etc.).

Phase 3 (2014-15) would see further expansion of CEF & PHHCC and development of Agro Research & Engineering Facility (for training and R&D activities).

Currently, SAIP housed the Demo Plot herbal nurseries (UNDP fund) and MOSTI Technofund’s Tea tree plantation (10 ha), nurseries, essential oil distillation plant (on-going) and Tissue culture/Product Development laboratories.

Approved SDC RMK10-RP1 project without ceiling. Phase 1 of the earthwork and Admin Building Completed under RMK9. Design for Phase 2 completed pending availability of funds.
