BANGI: Linaco Resources Sdn Bhd is eyeing further collaboration with academia for growth and sustainability, as evidenced by its signing of a technology licensing agreement with Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM).

The agreement will see the country’s largest coconut producer leveraging on a new fermentation process created by a team from the UKM Faculty of Science and Technology to transform matured coconut water into a healthy beverage, possibly coconut cider vinegar with a longer shelf life, effectively salvaging its waste and diversifying its product portfolio at the same time.
