Passion for food is deeply rooted in my cultural heritage, as well as my commitment to source ingredients locally and sustainably. A growing consumer base and particularly younger customers demand high quality food & snacks produced in an ethical and sustainable way.

We have successfully obtained the Green Industry Certificate from the Ministry of Industry (MIND).

We like to do things the right way

We don’t use animal fats in our production line. Our options are currently palm oil, coconut oil and rice bran oil. Of the three, palm oil and rice bran oil are actually the most efficient to produce. Using rice bran oil puts the least strain on resources, and it also carries excellent cooking properties. Rice Bran Oil is used for the majority of our products. In case we use palm oil, we will use the most ethical and sustainable palm oil possible, certified by the RSPO. This means it follows the highest agriculture standards, it is fully traceable, and grown on designated land that will not cause any further deforestation.

Vision / Mission / Values

Our vision is to become a leading food & beverage manufacturer with a clear purpose through our business and brands – to create delicious products in the most sustainable way. It is our mission to produce safe and premium quality products that reflect our culinary Thai heritage to delight consumers every day and around the globe. Our values are the compass that guides everything we do. We aim to reduce our environmental impact of products, packaging or processes. Our employees are our assets, and we treat business partners the way we want to be treated. We act responsibly on all aspects of our business. Respect, integrity, fairness, and responsibility are absolutely essential for our corporate business. We never sacrifice long-term goals for short-term success.

CSR

For us, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is not just a phrase. Social responsibility includes environmental preservation efforts, ethical labor practices, philanthropy, and promoting volunteering. We are putting it at the heart of our daily operations and structure, and it is directly reflected in the fundamental principles of the company. Furthermore, we regularly donate and distribute food items and other necessities to community members in need, particularly schools and educational institutions. In addition, we envision the food manufacturing businesses as a force for good. All manufacturing processes must also consider a socially responsible and ecologically sustainable process in strict compliance with ethical labor practices and relevant legal requirements. Using better packaging (recycled paper), improved production processes with less pollution (using eco-friendly ink for printing) and significantly reduced waste reduces our ecological footprint. It also creates new opportunities for companies that strive to be more sustainable. Let’s create a greener, fairer, safer and healthier world of food.
