Ms. Maytinee Phisutsinthop , Executive Vice President – Fresh Buying and Merchandising of Central Food Retail Company Limited revealed that “Tops is Thailand’s first leading food store and premium supermarket to organize a durian buffet “The Original Thailand’s Amazing Durian and Fruit Fest”. In previous year, we have phenomenally succeeded and were recognized as the Best Event. The tickets were sold out 100% with patrons of 60% foreigners and 40% locals. For this year, in collaboration with Department of Internal Trade – Ministry of Commerce, Tourism Authority of Thailand and CentralWorld to emphasize on Thailand’s powerful position in quality tropical fruits, promote tourism and seasonal Thai fruits, and support integrated large-scale durian farming community for high-quality produces, we are organizing “The Original Thailand’s Amazing Durian and Fruit Fest 2019″ for the 4th year between April 19 – 25, 2019 at Square B and C of CentralWorld. To further advocate Thailand’s quality seasonal fruits and durians both domestically and internationally, Tops has searched and found Thailand’s one and only Durian Guru Dr.Songpol Somsri – Durian Specialist and Modifier who has successfully added value to durian fruits through meticulous selections of farmers, species, pollination process, care, farmland management onto transportation from the farm to the hands of Central Food Hall and Tops’ customers as well as the buffet festival attendees with quality and taste standard on par with Tops’ mission to build brand reminding as provider of high-quality and delicious durians. In order to earn the trust of our customers and guarantee our produce quality, we have signed an exclusive direct purchase agreement with local farmers and community enterprises for their quality deliveries complemented by Tops trained personnel specializing in durian fruits. In 2019, Tops aims to increase the company’s seasonal fruits purchase by 25% on 70 varieties from local farmers of Thailand’s 67 provinces along with over 1,500 tons of durians.”
“The complete-fruit-service strategy has successfully positioned Thailand as the Powerful World Tropical Fruit Trading Nation. By focusing on developing the industry of fresh fruit produce and fruit products to fit the international standards, creating and expanding markets and systematically networking and increasing distribution channels, and organizing activities and fairs to promote seasonal fruit purchase to provide farmers / producers / vendees / community enterprises with reasonably priced distribution space. In previous year, “The Original Thailand’s Amazing Durian and Fruit Fest” we have organized in collaboration with Tops has considerably driven and strengthened the domestic economy in both tourism and agricultural sectors via integrated forces from all sides including the agricultural sector, the government and private bodies. Additionally, Ministry of Commerce has invested in a production and marketing planning to support local farmers and prevent oversupplying and decreased quality products in both short and long term basis.” added, Mr.Chatchai Saksilapachal, Deputy Director General of the Department of Internal Trade
Mr.Weerapong Phongsawas, Director of Activity Promotion Division, Tourism Authority of Thailand stated “From an intended plan, both domestically and internationally, of making Thailand become the world’s metropolis of tropical fruits, we have organized Thai Fruits Buffet event for both Thais and foreigners to try unique taste from wide array of local fruits. It is expected that the interest of international tourists and visitors will help stimulate the economy. In 2018, over 50% of tourists especially those from China expressed interest and participated the event. Holding the event right in the heart of Bangkok also enabled event goers to commute to the event more conveniently. We are optimistic that more numbers of international tourists will join this year and the event itself will gain more interest over the one we held in 2018. In parallel, Tourism Authority of Thailand encourages more international tourists to visit Thailand during Green Season on weekdays, both in Bangkok and various less visited cities throughout different regions of Thailand so they could experience our country in unseen, untold and unsealed ways”
