WINE vendors participate in the one village-one product exhibition at Phnom Penh’s Wat Botum park yesterday. Vendors said they were attempting to encourage Cambodians to use more domestically manufactured products.

Yin Lang, owner of a perfume company, said participating in the exhibition was a good way to introduce her Love You products to Cambodians.

“Cambodian people are becoming more interested in Cambodian-made products,” she said, adding she specifically targeted teenagers and foreigners for her products.

Sok Chenda, owner of Chamkardong Soy Sauce makers, said it could be a challenge competing with foreign-made goods.

“Competing with foreign goods requires better packaging techniques ... as [Cambodians] think the quality of local products is lower than that of foreign products.” SIEAM BUNTHY
