Joinland Group Anticipates Better 2021

gbafNews28

New Agricultural Projects Expected To Contribute To Group Revenues

 

KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA – Media OutReach – 12 January 2021 – The Joinland Group, a diversified Malaysian conglomerate of varied business interests, is looking forward to the future with optimism, due to two new agricultural projects that are coming onstream in Sarawak over the course of the year.

 

Dato’ Sri Thomas Hah Tiing Siu, the founder of Joinland, said, “We have decided to invest in the agricultural aspect of our business, both to diversify income for the overall group and because it’s clear as that there is both high and growing demand particularly for fresh pineapple/coconut and pineapple/coconut-based products from neighbouring countries, the Middle East and China. As such we began pineapple and coconut planting in the Sungai Rait and Kuala Baram areas of Sarawak earlier this year. We believe that this will create an important revenue stream for the business moving forward.”

 

According to Malaysia’s Ministry of Agriculture (MOA) Malaysia exported RM419 million in pineapple products in 2019 — a 60% increase over 2018* — and the Ministry also predicted annual growth for the industry exceeding 5%.** Likewise, while coconut is currently Malaysia’s fourth largest industrial crop, behind oil palm, rubber and rice, the demand for coconut products has also been growing rapidly driven by higher awareness of the health benefits of the fruit.***

 

As part of its agricultural focus, Joinland has invested in R&D, technology and automation to ensure the best productivity, fruit quality, storage and delivery in the industry. Joinland will be planting the ‘Matag’ variety coconut and the ‘MD2, N36 and Josapine’ pineapple variants.

 

The company is focusing on downstream processing to ensure value creation for its agricultural products and to ensure compliance with food and safety standards (HACCP, Halal, GMP, MesTi, etc.), which will in turn ensure the marketability and premium pricing of these products through the company’s international partnerships and sales channels. 

 

The Joinland Group, which is headquartered in Miri, Sarawak, is involved in many different businesses including a major agro-forestry project on the island of New Hanover in Papua New Guinea, Swiftlet Farming in Sarawak, real-estate management (including developments in Malaysia, Singapore and China) and substantial investments in seven other businesses in Malaysia, Singapore, China and New Zealand.

 

Just as it has done for businesses worldwide, the COVID-19 pandemic did impact Joinland’s revenues and operations in 2020. The biggest impact was on the company’s Swiftlet Farming operations, with both a reduction in the price of edible bird nests (due to reduction of tourism and interstate transportation complications), as well as operational issues (travel restrictions) which limited oversight of the production houses.   

Commenting on this Dato’ Sri Thomas Hah Tiing Siu, commented, “We expect that things will gradually improve in 2021, although this may take a while. Many of the very severe restrictions that were imposed with the first Movement Control Order (MCO) in Malaysia have gradually eased, which has helped, but we will continue to face challenges in 2021, particularly in the Swiftlet Farming element of our business due to the low-price of edible bird nests, labour supply issues and increased operational costs due to higher transportation charges. This is why we are delighted to have got our new agricultural projects underway.”

 

In concluding, Dato Sri Thomas, said, “Despite the unpredictable nature of life at the moment, I am confident that Joinland Group is well positioned to ride out any further turbulence thanks to the wide ranging and diverse nature of our business. We are excited about what the future holds and are looking forward to growing the business further during 2021.”

Give Gift Boutique Predicts A Sales Boom of Preserved Flowers on Valentine’s Day Due to The Growing Demand of Floral Gifts During COVID-19

gbafNews28

HONG KONG SAR – Media OutReach – 13 January 2021 – The coronavirus pandemic has taken a sharp toll on stores, and online buying has become a living habit of citizens. On the market change caused by the global pandemic, Give Gift Boutique, the leading online flower shop in Hong Kong, caught up with the sales boom, and increased sales by 20% last year. As we review the most popular Valentine’s Day flower in 2020, we found that rose bouquets were still the most widely chosen. In the meanwhile, the orders of preserved flowers are growing, making them one of the most popular gifts in 2020.

[View Image]

The Gift-giving Fever During The Epidemic

With the unpredictable year it has been, citizens adapt to physical distancing measures and avoid gatherings. But the popularity of gift-giving rose unexpectedly, especially on festive days. John Wong, the founder and CEO of Give Gift Boutique, said that as people cannot visit loved ones in person, they are sending gifts to show their caring.

 

John Wong added: “We have held some charity events from time to time for the people in need, and we achieved great repercussions by the people with gratitude. What’s more, we are supported by the public and some welfare organizations. From another perspective, Hong Kong people have the eagerness to get warm greetings during the social isolation period caused by the cruel virus.”

An Alternative Choice For The Day Of Lovers

Due to the superiority of quality, colors, and long shelf-life, the demand for imported flowers has been increasing in recent decades, and imported fresh flowers have been widely used for festivals, anniversaries, and other occasions. However, the global pandemic caused an impact on the market of imported flowers, leading to unstable supply chains and fluctuating prices. Thus, if you want to purchase imported flowers this Valentine’s Day, you have to reserve a higher budget than in previous years.

 

Compared with imported flowers, the supply chains and price of preserved flowers are more stable. Since they are made of real flowers, they have a texture close to that of fresh flowers. What’s more, they have a long shelf-life, which makes them endurable for long-term transportation. In recent years, preserved flowers have become more familiar to people, and are frequently exposed on social media by Internet celebrities, which shows that the cost-effectiveness of preserved flowers makes them widely recognized by consumers. There are various styles of immortal flower products on the market, not only bouquets, but also products in the form of gift baskets, decorations, lighting, etc., which becomes more common on various occasions.

 

John Wong said, that in recent years, during the Lunar New Year, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and other festivals, the popularity of preserved flowers is comparable to imported flowers. More and more customers choose mid-end and high-end products, as well as some ingenious designs and functional preserved flower products.

The Approaching Buying Spree Of Pre-holiday Preserved Flower Ordering

From our experience, 70% of consumers will send Valentine’s Day gifts to offices in advance, while only 30% of consumers will send gifts straight to home. However, Valentine’s Day this year happens to meet on the third day of the lunar new year, and almost all companies will rest on this day. If you want to give your loved one a surprise, you have to order gifts earlier. What’s more, some flower stores will be closed from the first to the third day of the lunar new year. Take Give Gift Boutique, for example, considering the annual vacations of most companies, and the workers’ eagerness to enjoy Spring Festival, their flower stores will be closed on February 12-14 this year.

 

Furthermore, the third day of the Lunar New Year is called “Chikou”, known to be a day that people will quarrel with one another if going out. On this day, Hong Kong people will stay at home and hope all is well, so we expect people to send gifts before this special day. For lovers in a long-distance relationship, they will place an order in advance to send flowers with a long shelf life, to prevent their gift-giving plans from failing, and to make their loved ones enjoy beautiful flowers on Valentine’s Day. Thus, in addition to imported flowers, preserved flowers ordered online will become another mainstream selection for Valentine’s Day gifts this year.

 

In this situation, the sales of preserved flowers before Valentine’s Day may increase significantly. John Wong said that they are facing challenges, but to ensure ample supply during the special days, Give Gift Boutique has made preparations a few months beforehand, and they are sure to provide sufficient high-quality gifts to customers.

About Give Gift Boutique

Give Gift Boutique is the leading online flower shop in Hong Kong. It is managed by senior florist designers in the Netherlands and Toronto. It operates in the boutique workshop model and serves corporate and individual customers throughout the year. Since its opening in 2008, it has been committed to providing customers with high-quality flower bouquets, holiday hampers, birthday gifts, etc. https://www.givegift.com.hk
