The Malaysian Pineapple Industry Board (MPIB) is a Statutory Body was established in 1957 which was formerly known as Lembaga Perusahaan Nanas Tanah Melayu/Malayan Pineapple Industry Board. In keeping with the development of the pineapple industry, the agency’s name was changed to Lembaga Perindustrian Nanas Malaysia/Malaysian Pineapple Industry Board in 1992 (Act 105- Revised 1990) under the Ministry of Primary Industry.

On May 29 1996, the Cabinet Ministers made a decision to abolish the Pineapple Board, and its functions were transferred to the Department of Agriculture, FAMA and MARDI. The abolishment exercise was implemented in stages for a period of 3 years in accordance to the dissolution of the 1957 Pineapple Industrial Act (Revised 1990).

The Pineapple Board was placed under the Ministry of Agriculture on 1 June, 1999 to complete the implementation of the abolishment exercise. The Ministry of Agriculture was given the role as a leading agency to coordinate the abolishement in relation to issues such as distribution of functions, staff, properties, liabilities, authority and Pineapple Board legislation among agencies involved.

As a result 56 staff from the Pineapple Board Development Section were transferred to Johor Pineapple Industry Development Section. Another 8 staff from the Pineapple Board Administrative Division were transferred to Johor Civil Service and 14 other staff from the Inspector Section, Planning and Marketing Development Section were transferred to FAMA office, Johor branch.

A total of 22 staff remained in the Pineapple Board to carry out related activities until the final process of abolishment was completed.


However, on 14 June 2000, the Cabinet Ministers agreed to review the abolishment order. Thus, on 15 September 2004, the cabinet ministers made a decision to maintain the Pineapple Board as the leader in development of the pineapple industry and on 29 May 1996, the decision to abolish the Pineapple Board was revoked. Apart from that, movable and unmovable assets belonging to the Pineapple Board and all the appointments were restored.
