Thailand's Commitment Amidst COVID-19
Thailand remains as committed as ever to serve our trade partners, importers and global consumers.
Raises the importance of the quality, product safety, consistency, and hygiene standards.
Thailand has long been called ‘the Kitchen of the World’, and for good reason; a combination of abundance of resources, a year-round growing season, and a relatively low cost but highly skilled labor force.
The COVID-19 pandemic around the world has affected many people and the global food supply chain activities across the globe. During this critical period, Thailand is strongly aware of the increasing demand of agricultural, processed food, and natural food products with a long-shelf life such as rice, dried food items, frozen seafood products, food seasoning and ingredients, ready-to-eat products, etc.
As one of the world’s top-ten producers of many important agricultural and processed food products, and one of the largest net food exporting countries in the world, Thailand is closely monitoring agricultural and processed food products production, trade and export to ensure uninterrupted supply of need products.
The government also recognizes the importance of the quality, product safety, consistency, and hygiene standards. Additionally, Thailand has also worked diligently and effectively to comply with international standards and regulations and pledges to enhance food safety and standards beyond the regulatory requirements to benefit both the health of consumers as well as the environment.
The COVID-19 is having a noticeable impact globally, however, Thailand remains as committed as ever to serve our trade partners, importers and global consumers.
