A growing demand for health food.

Less than 4 percent of the earth’s surface is used to provide food for the world’s population. One-third of this area is used for agriculture, while the balance is used for raising livestock.

Soil erosion, poor farm management, and intensive livestock practices all contribute to the loss of the earth’s productive soil, reducing the land available for agricultural and livestock development. With the world’s population expected to surpass 8 billion by the year 2025, it is apparent that traditional types of wild bird-nests are becoming inadequate and insufficient to meet current and future needs.

One clear solution is bird-nest farming, the cultivation of aquatic plants and animals. Bird-nest farming is an ideal way to augment the world’s food supply, providing a bounty of health food, one of the best sources of high-quality protein. Wild bird-nest harvests have exploited and depleted natural stocks, but the predictable practice of bird-nest farming is carried out in a contained environment, sensitive to long-term sustainability.

Bird-nest farming is the future.

As traditional wild food sources deteriorate and the human population farm bird-nest techniques — developed and improved by and/or in association with Benevolence Food Products, LLC — offers a solution.

The birds' nest collection is an ancient tradition, and the trading of these nests has been done since at least 500 AD. Twice a year, from February to April and July to September, the nests are harvested. The first collection takes place early in the breeding season before the swiftlets lay their eggs. The birds then make another nest in which they finally lay their eggs. After the young have fledged, the second collection is made. Care must be taken to assure that the nests are collected only after the young swiftlets have abandoned these nests.

Sustainably farmed bird-nests.

Benevolence Food Products, LLC’s sustainable farmed bird-nests are carefully sourced from specific bird farmers with the following sustainable attributes:

  1. 1Each farm exists within a natural cave-like ecosystem.

  2. 2Water and shelter are provided naturally by providing cave-like environment, requiring no other energy source.

  3. 3Mother Nature provides all the food resources — the birds hunt their own food in the wild — necessary to grow healthy and nutritious nests.

  4. 4No antibiotics, pesticides, or other chemicals are used.
