Delima Oil projects RM1.2bil turnover
Last year, the company chalked up RM1.13 billion in revenue, he told reporters after the launch of its new bread spread products.
He said the new products, comprising peanut butter as well as peanut and chocolate spreads, would be available at over 7,000 outlets including hypermarkets, supermarkets, mini markets and sundry shops nationwide.
Zakaria said the company had put more efforts in research and development to diversify its product range in its bid to strengthen its downstream activities.
“We have invested about RM3mil on production, advertising and promotion costs for the three new products,” he said.
Apart from the local market, Zakaria said the company’s products were already being distributed in Myanmar. It is now eyeing to penetrate the Philippines and Indonesia.
