Thong Fat, which means “success and prosperity together”, first product is a soap called Wings Soap. The company quickly sold this soap in stalls everywhere, and gradually was well received by the community.
By 1971, the company produced the cream-based laundry detergent “Ekonomi” and the product quickly became a product widely used by the people of East Java.
