Baik...

Malaysia market has been under-appreciated with the KLCI only recording 2 positive returns (in 2017 and 2020) over the past 10 years. This is mainly due to foreign fund selling, inconsistent policy follow-through, along with external forces such as the US sticking to higher rates for a longer period and a sluggish recovery in China.



However, things have improved since the 2H of last year and this strong momentum persists into 2024, with KLCI registering +6.7% gains YTD as of Feb 2024, indicating signs of renewed optimism towards the Malaysia market. Despite the recent rally, we hold a positive view on Malaysia market over the medium to long term. $$$$$$$$$$$$

Kawan's products especially its roti canai, capati , dhal, etc should be marketed and distributed more aggressive globally.

In a viral Xiao Hong Shu (RED) post by @辣芷的美食日记, 2 Malaysian Indian men are seen flipping Roti Canai in Chongqing, China to the amusement of the people who pass by the stall. The best part is, the 2 Malaysian men interacted with the customers in the Mandarin language. One of the men had his smile on ALL the time, and he was happily flipping the bread while chatting with the customer.

Another man, who seemed a little camera-shy was busy grilling the bread right next to him.

Let’s explore why wars might have a positive impact on Kawan Food’s products, the frozen food manufacturer:

Shift in Consumer Habits:
During wars or crises, consumer habits often change.
The popularity of frozen food tends to increase as people seek convenient, long-lasting options.
Kawan Food’s products, including roti, paratha, and spring rolls, fall into this category.
Robust Demand:
Despite disruptions to production facilities during the Covid-19 pandemic, Kawan Food experienced strong demand.
Orders were not canceled, and the company even increased its market share in the domestic market.
Before the pandemic, Kawan Food held about 60% of the domestic market share.
Backlog of Orders:
Temporary closures and workforce restrictions led to a backlog of orders from both local and overseas customers.
Kawan Food’s utilization rate is expected to rise as it resumes production at full capacity.
New Products and Export Markets:
Kawan Food’s growth prospects lie in new products and export markets.
South America, its newest overseas market, is expected to contribute positively.
The company’s ability to secure new workers and increase headcount will boost production.
Embracing Industry Revolution 4.0:
Kawan Food is adopting digitization and efficiency-enhancing projects.
These initiatives reduce wastage, improve production efficiency, and lessen reliance on manpower.
In summary, wars indirectly drive demand for Kawan Food’s frozen products due to changing consumer habits, leading to a positive outlook for the company. 🌟🍽️🚀
