Asia Plantation Capital’s Singapore’s pioneer Agarwood plantation clients were recently hosted to a client appreciation dinner in celebration of the successful completion of their Oud sales.
Held at the historic Fullerton Hotel, the pioneer clients and their guests were treated to a sumptuous buffet spread along with entertainment from a live two-piece band. Asia Plantation Capital Chief Executive Officer, Barry Rawlinson delivered a quick speech thanking the clients for their support as well as addressing developments in the region.
“Asia Plantation Capital as one of the leading companies in agroforestry, wants to work with and has engaged with different agencies from around the world, to help put in place codes of practice and rules that will benefit both clients and companies alike,” said Mr. Rawlinson.
“We have recently received Shariah compliance approval from IBFIM, the advisory body for Shariah compliance on all matters pertaining to Islamic banking in Malaysia, for one of our products. It was a partnering process with IBFIM where we learned about the requirements of Shariah compliance and IBFIM learned about how we and the agroforestry market works.”
The clients were also given a quick update on the recent developments at Asia Plantation Capital. These included the new factory in Johor, Malaysia, the winning of Best Forestry Asset Management Team for 2014 by CFI.co magazine, and the very recent award of Best Plantation Management Company 2015 conferred on the company by The European magazine.
Clients came away very impressed by the evening’s proceedings and appreciated Mr. Rawlinson’s personal update of the company. “Our clients are very important to us and we aim to always ensure they get the most out of their partnership with us. I am very pleased that our pioneer clients in Singapore have received a good price for their Oud and we are all able to celebrate this with them,” added Mr. Rawlinson.
The evening ended with prizes sponsored by Fragrance Du Bois with the Brand Director, Mrs. Nicola Parker handing out gifts to the winners. The first prize winner received a very special London Oud fragrance that will only be formally launched around the world in the coming weeks.
