Said Hian Goh, Managing Director, AFC: “Launching GreenPanTM on AFC has been an amazing success when we introduced it exclusively to our viewers for sale through our website in July of last year. This follows the enormous success the pan has enjoyed in the United States and Europe. Therefore, we are pleased to be the exclusive TV advertisers for this pan now that it’s available for sale for our retail customers in shops. It’s part of our drive to create for all our advertisers excellent turnkey solutions that help to drive their products.”
Said Mr Wim De Veirman, Chief Executive Officer, GreenPanTM: “We are proud and excited to partner with the Asian Food Channel and launch GreenPanTM through Asia’s premier cooking channel.”
MH Basri, Managing Director, Katrin BJ said: “As an established distributor of cookware for 26 years we had our customers continually telling us how much they loved watching AFC. It was no surprise therefore, when we started getting requests for us to sell GreenPanTM to them. We see the resulting partnership between us, AFC and GreenPanTM as new way of reaching out and selling cookware to our target consumers.”
The extended product range was exclusively launched in Takashimaya and House of Presentation in Singapore and Malaysia respectively on 19th February 2009.
