MANILA, Philippines — More products made in the Philippines are expected to enter Cambodia’s consumer market in the coming months as companies intend to expand their presence abroad, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) announced Thursday.
The DFA said that a distributor based in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, bared its plans to import beauty and personal care products as well as food products, health supplements, medical equipment and devices from the Philippines.
CYS Pharma, which is currently the main importer and distributor of Purefoods products, is looking to import beauty and personal care products from the Belo Medical Group and add Fiesta Ham as among the products it will sell this Christmas season.
“With a young and dynamic population and increasing purchasing power, the Cambodian market presents great opportunities for Philippine companies seeking to grow their business presence and market reach in the region,” the DFA said in a statement.
Ambassador to Cambodia Christopher Montero said that it is important for the Filipino community in Cambodia to patronize consumer goods made in the Philippines because it will encourage Cambodians to sample “quality, yet affordable, products.”
Philippine companies that are already present in Cambodia include Liwayway Food Industries, Unilab, San Miguel Beer, Cebu Pacific, Potato Corner, Penshoppe, and Jewelmer.
Various products from Davies Paints, Universal Robina Corporation, Century Tuna, and Petron are also being sold in major cities of Cambodia. /cbb
