A University-Industry collaboration to produce industry-ready graduates, spurring the nation’s poultry industry

KUALA LUMPUR, 15 July 2019 – Universiti Sultan Zainal Abidin (UniSZA) has signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) with QSR Brands (M) Holdings Bhd (QSR Brands) through its Upstream business arm, Ayamas Integrated Poultry Sdn Bhd (AIPI), to launch the poultry industry’s first-ever 2u2i academic programme in Bachelor of Animal Health and Production. This is in support of flexible education as envisioned by Malaysia Education Blueprint 2015-2025 (Higher Education) in producing holistic, entrepreneurial and balanced graduates.

The MoA was signed by Dato’ Seri Mohamed Azahari Mohamed Kamil, Group Managing Director of QSR Brands and Prof. Dato’ Dr. Hassan Basri Awang Mat Dahan, Vice Chancellor of UniSZA.

As a subset to Work-Based Learning, 2u2i study mode supports the blending of academic study and industrial training. The strategic partnership provides opportunity for students in the Bachelor of Animal Health and Production programme to gain experiential learning through industrial training with AIPI at Ayamas Mantin Broiler Farm for one year, following three years of academic study.

“The partnership is in line with our vision and mission towards having quality graduates, and in this case, in the poultry industry – in turn, this will also help to boost graduates’ employability,” said Prof. Dato’ Dr. Hassan Basri Awang Mat Dahan, Vice Chancellor of UniSZA.

QSR Brands is Malaysia’s only vertically integrated restaurant operator, operating from Farm to Fork. Its leading restaurant business is supported by its upstream operations involving integrated poultry and ancillary operating segments by providing a secure, reliable and stable source of quality chicken and other food products to its restaurant business where its upstream business, AIPI operates feedmill, hatchery, breeder and broiler farms.

QSR Brands is committed to produce industry-ready graduates by designing an industrial curriculum that will provide the students with experiential learning in integrated poultry operations, equipped with holistic training at breeder farms, hatchery, broiler farms as well as exposure in the halal slaughtering and production from poultry processing plant.

“As the largest quick service restaurant operator in the region, we need to play our part in driving the transformation to unlock the full potential of our future talents and young drivers of tomorrow, by providing the undergraduates with experiential learning. This strategic partnership is an added value to the poultry industry as a whole – by the time the students graduate, all the attributes expected by the industry would have been met,” said Dato’ Seri Mohamed Azahari Mohamed Kamil, Group Managing Director of QSR Brands.

Officiated by Duli Yang Maha Mulia Raja Zarith Sofiah Binti Almarhum Sultan Idris Shah, the Permaisuri of Johor, ‘The Caring Home’ is a place equipped with welfare facilities, aimed at improving the palliative care of patients – a crucial aspect to assist recovery, as well as providing better rest and relaxation facilities for their caretakers and medical staff.

Commenting on the opening ceremony of ‘The Caring Home’, Yang Dihormati Datin Noor Laila Yahaya, Chairman of Mutiara Johor Corporation expressed, “As an organisation that focuses on people’s welfare and public development, we believe that it takes concerted and continued efforts to bring about positive change to our community. We are overwhelmed with the support that Pizza Hut Malaysia has received so far, and we look forward to sustaining this meaningful partnership between the public sector, private corporations and consumers for even bigger projects ahead.”

Launched in 2017, the three-year collaboration targets to raise funds under the Pizza Hut’s ‘Hut to Heart’ initiative in support of the desired transformation of the Ward.

“We are grateful and humbled by our customers who have come forward to contribute in support of our cause. Big or small, every penny counts. Giving back to society is more than just donations – it’s about making a difference,” said Datin Noor Laila Yahaya.

“I commend Pizza Hut Malaysia for taking the initiative to rally support from Malaysians in improving the quality of life of our patients and provide support to their caretakers as well as the medical staff in Hospital Sultanah Aminah. We hope that this would be a model to demonstrate how strides can be made through partnership between corporation and public sector to better meet the necessities of the people,” said Yang Berbahagia Dr. Selahuddeen Bin Abd Aziz, Johor Health Director.

The three-year collaboration with Hospital Sultanah Aminah aims to improve demarcated areas and facilities such as resting room for caretakers, nurses’ lounge, a healing garden, to name a few.

‘Hut to Heart’ is a Pizza Hut’s long-term initiative that champions social good with focus on fighting against Malaysia’s fourth leading cause of premature fatality: cancer. It aims to empower Malaysians to live a healthier and happier cancer-free life. Since its inception in 2017, ‘Hut to Heart’ has rolled out two projects, namely ‘SayangiMu’ in partnership with the National Cancer Society Malaysia and ‘The Caring Home’ in collaboration with Mutiara Johor Corporation and Hospital Sultanah Aminah. A spin of the popular phrase ‘from heart to heart’ – ‘Hut to Heart’ establishes the premise that every cause the brand undertakes always come from the heart of everyone in Pizza Hut and its customers.

In support of ‘Hut to Heart’ initiative, Pizza Hut customers may donate 20sen with every total bill either via Dine In or via Pizza Hut Delivery. Donation boxes are also placed at all Pizza Hut restaurants nationwide.
