Small-scale food enterprises have played a very important role in the Malaysian economy, particularly in terms of employment generation, better income distribution and as a training ground for entrepreneurs before they invest in larger enterprises. Small-scale food enterprises also have important linkages to related industries such as the manufacture of machinery, and food packaging materials, and suppliers of food ingredients. It is envisaged that small-scale food enterprises will continue to expand in line with policies and incentives introduced by the government.
