DKSH to drive Herballines’ sales in Myanmar

DKSH, the leading Market Expansion Services provider with a focus on Asia, has started a partnership with Paradise Products Company Limited, a leading personal care manufacturer from Myanmar, to drive market share of its Herballines brand in its domestic market.

Yangon, April 28, 2017 – DKSH Business Unit Consumer Goods, Asia’s leading Market Expansion Services provider for fast moving consumer goods, will provide marketing, sales, distribution and logistics services to Paradise Products, especially its Herballines brand. The agreement will increase the availability and visibility of Herballines’ personal care products across modern and traditional trade channels in Myanmar.

Paradise Products is the leading personal care manufacturer in Myanmar, offering a wide range of shampoos, shower gels and facial cleansers.

“While we already have a presence in Myanmar, we needed a strong partner to expand our lead while allowing us to focus on our core competencies. We are confident that DKSH’s extensive capillary distribution network and proven track record in growing business will help us capture our full potential,” said U Aung Myat Oo, Managing Director, Paradise Products.

According to the Boston Consulting Group, Myanmar’s middle class is expected to double from 5.3 million in 2013 to 10.3 million people in 2020. And as one of Asia’s latest economies to open, the World Bank estimates that Myanmar’s economy will grow an average of 7.1 percent per year in the next three years.

With our more than twenty years of experience in Myanmar, we are eager to support Paradise Products’ growth by bringing their products to more outlets and by turning shoppers into buyers,” commented Rajinder Grover, Vice President Consumer Goods and Head Country Management, DKSH Myanmar.
