KK Kingston is excited to announce the launch of a new PNG Made toilet tissue brand called ‘KleenSorb Ultra Soft Toilet tissue’.

KleenSorb is already available in a number of major retailers in Port Moresby and Lae. By the end of August consumers across PNG will have access to KleenSorb. 

The new brand, proudly produced in Lae by KK Kingston Limited is the result of careful market and consumer research. PNG consumer expectations are rising. The demand is for affordable quality. We wanted to create a product equal to that produced internationally and positioned at a price point that would meet the disposable income of a large segment of urban PNG families. KleenSorb is an excellent value proposition. It is the right product, and just the right price. It also means that we have a PNG made product that is able to compete and beat (!) many of the foreign imports completing in this same segment. PNG Families can proudly buy this PNG made product, support their local industry, support their country and be very happy with the product in their basket and in their homes.
