Sambio Resources is a social enterprise that collects, markets, stores and supplies used cooking oil (UCO). It started operations in January 2015 and became officially registered under SSM in April.
Sambio Resources was founded by Saiful Adli Mokhtar from its base in Kuantan, Pahang. He had realised that the immense value of UCO, this precious “resource”, was being wasted: everywhere in Malaysia UCO is mostly disposed off by being poured down the drain into waterways. Due to the untapped market potential in the East Coast, Sambio Resources started collecting UCO from both commercial enterprises and individuals.
From July 2015, Sambio Resources started the MAGIC Accelerator Program for Social Enterprises (MAPSE). During this program, the social enterprise was taken note of by myHarapan’s Social Enterprise Ventures (SEV). With their help, Sambio Resources is expected to grow and develop to be better equipped to help reduce poverty among the poor families and keep waterways in Malaysia clean of pollutants.
