SLP will focus on ramping up the production of kitchen and garbage bag, targeting approximately 25.0% of production output in FY21f (from less than 20% recorded in FY20). Following the rising healthcare awareness, SLP aims to undertake new products, namely medical pouches, tacky mats and door handle refills.
