Talaad Thai Market
Dr. Thanom Angkanawatana, the founder of Thai Agro Products Company Limited, showed his great concern to the importance of agricultural sector, in terms of its biggest labor market and marketplace. He then came up with an idea to fortify the agricultural sector by pushing the market mechanism to its highest potentiality, and considered that the free trade system for agricultural products, known as a “central market” is the key to solve such problems. Consequently, Talaad Thai has been established as the biggest and the most modern integrated center for agricultural and industrial goods.Founded in 1997 and administrated by Thai Agro Products Company Limited, Talaad Thai is Thailand’s biggest central market for agricultural products.
