Rayong Putting Emphasis On Fruit And Herbal Products
It is rare to find international cuisine in Rayong that will meet the standards of foodies but when one does it will surely blow their mind. The province of Thailand is now aiming to become a centre for high quality fruit and herbal products. This is an initiative of Suphattraland fruit garden in partnership with Drug Discovery and Development Centre and Thailand Equatorial Fruit and Herbal Park in order to develop a research hub within the province that is world class.
The research hub is to be called Suphattra land Excellent Agriculture Research Centre Hub or SEARCH. The centre, according to SuwatFaprathanchai who is Suphattraland’s managing director, will be responsible for collecting fruits as well as herbs within Thailand that is covered by the equatorial latitude of the country. Within the equatorial latitude are the nations Mexico, Vietnam, Mauritania, the Philippines, Mali, India, Niger, Oman, Chad, Saudi Arabia and Sudan.
The deputy director of research and development at Drug Discovery and Development Centre, SrungSmanmoo, said that SEARCH is a joint project between the centre of Thammasat University and other partners such as Suphattraland.
The National Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (Biotec) will also join hands with the project with their research and development services. Furthermore, they will have a product centre for anti-ageing and health. The company will also provide a customer service representative centre along with social enterprises.
SEARCH will be based in the eastern part of the country and will serve as the research and development centre that will supply know-how and knowledge for the market and private sectors. Srung said that SEARCH will act as a bridge that will connect the businesses all over Rayong and Thailand with the government and the researchers. At the end of the day, businesses will achieve sustainability and the life of the locals will improve as a result. An additional role that SEARCH will tackle is smart agricultural farming.
With high quality fruits and herbs, supplier of international cuisine in Rayong will have improved raw materials to work with thus meeting the standards of tourists from all over the world.
