Golden Banana Project

Ongoing Project to Promote Golden (Hom Thong) Banana Farmers. The project focuses on supporting products from farmers and small entrepreneurs, starting from making teaching materials to train farmers, and promoting plantations to be in accordance with the standards. The products should be able to be traced back to their plantation/production origin. The project also promotes knowledge of packaging and storage, increases distribution channels, both online and offline through 7-Eleven stores and 7Delivery.

The Golden Banana Project generates more income for farmers and small entrepreneurs and more employment in the community. Currently, the project covers over 22,326 rais of agricultural land in 36 provinces. Meanwhile, the impact assessment results from the past projects reveal that the Golden Banana Project had 25.12 times more positive than negative impacts.
