Exhibiting at MIFF2024 and visiting Kluang

MIFF2024 (Malaysian International Furniture Fair), Asia’s largest international furniture exhibition, was held in KL from March 1st to 4th, 2024, and Panasonic exhibited PALM LOOP furniture. Furthermore, On March 5th, furniture manufacturers and retail companies that handle PALM LOOP visited the oil palm logging site, which is the raw material for PALM LOOP, and the pilot plant in Kluang. We hope that these activities will lead to further expansion of recognition of PALM LOOP products in the future.
