Feeding the fire of modernisation

The feeling in Thailand’s food and beverage sector at the moment is one of enterprise and innovation. Food For The Future and Agricultural & Biotechnology are two of ten industries singled out in Thailand 4.0, the ambitious development plan designed to transform the country into a high-income economy, a commitment which is underscored by tax incentives for foreign investors. The proliferation of Michelin star-rated restaurants and the launch of Thailand’s very own Michelin guidebook is an obvious example of the excitement brought by the food and beverage sector.

Kudun & Partners has been at the centre of this progressive thinking. Between January 2015 and December 2018, more than US$1.6 billion of investment poured into Thailand’s food and beverage sector. We advised on several of these transactions, helping not only foreign investors in navigating the local landscape to maximise value and meet their commercial objectives but also local conglomerates seeking to expand their products and brand abroad.

Few food and beverage markets are as exciting as Thailand’s right now. We can help you make the most of it.
