Olam (Thailand) Limited was incorporated in 2009 and today operates a head office in Bangkok and a processing and packing factory in Nonthaburi province on the banks of the Chao Phrya River . We also work with other exporters as a single-point sourcing contact. This greater value chain participation provides us with deeper price, risk and product information insights that are a distinct market advantage.
We have a long-term commitment to Thailand and our recent sustainability initiatives include our support and involvement as the first corporate signatory to the country’s “Thai Rice NAMA” initiative which aims to help 100,000 farmers reduce greenhouse gas emissions over the next 5 years. We also are the largest Sustainable Rice Platform (SRP) (www.sustainablerice.org) Project in the world with our efforts in the Northeast Provinces of Ubon Ratchathani and Surin through the Better Rice Initiative Asia Phase II ( BRIA 2). We are reaching around 15,000 farmers and in 2019 we became the world’s first fully audited and certified program to deliver Sustainable Rice under the SRP banner with almost 30,000MT of the premium Thai Hom mali Paddy Rice certified.
