Diversified conglomerate Sterling Paper Group of Companies, headed by CEO Henry Lim Bon Liong, wants to expand its export business by selling fruits and vegetables in countries like Dubai, United Kingdom, Australia, United States, among other countries.
Sterling Group, which started as a maker of photo albums and stationeries, already started exporting banana and mangoes abroad through SL Agrifood Corp., a newly built subsidiary that the company wants to expand in the next few years.
We just started exporting fruits through SL Agrifoods. We export bananas and mangoes depending on the season,” Michelle Lim-Gankee, assistant to CEO Henry Lim Bon Liong, said in an interview during the 70th Anniversary Celebration of Sterling Group held in Pasay.
