KUCHING: The Malaysian Pepper Board (MPB) has partnered with ME Info Media Sdn Bhd to produce promotional videos on the pepper agri commodity industry.

A ceremony to hand over the completed videos was held on Friday (April 30) at the MPB Headquarters in Kuching. ME Info Media Sdn Bhd’s managing director Presley Ng handed over the videos to MPB director-general Philip Gaweng.

Ten videos on MPB roles, activities, production of pepper-based products, cooking demonstrations using pepper products, success stories of downstream pepper entrepreneurs, market development activities as well as pepper businesses will be used to promote MPB.

 MPB is the leading agency for the development of the pepper industry in the state.

Production and filming of the videos started on Nov 30 last year. The videos were shot at selected localities such as the premises of successful pepper entrepreneurs guided by MPB as well as pepper farms around Kuching, Kota Samarahan and Serian.

Dr Abdul Riezal Dim, lecturer at the Faculty of Applied and Creative Arts from Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas), as the consultant, contributed to the video production as well.

The videos will be available for viewing on MPB official website at www.mpb.gov.my from May 6.
