The Danish Embassy in Bangkok will attract companies, organize B2B meetings in dialogue with you and arrange a joint info point.

FI Asia is the number one meeting place for Southeast Asia’s food industry, gathering leading domestic and international ingredient suppliers, distributors, and food and beverage manufacturers from across the ASEAN region and all over the world.

Join thousands of exhibitors over three days to showcase your ingredient solutions, learn about the latest innovations and trends, and connect with new and existing business partners under one roof. By participating at the Danish national pavilion, you benefit not only from better visibility but also from Denmark’s positive image as leading in high standards of food safety, quality and sustainability. 

All practical details will be organized from Denmark by DAFC. 

THE MARKET
Thailand has – like the larger economies in the region: Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia and the Philippines – a strong and growing food sector. Thus, Thailand is one of the world’s leading food and agricultural suppliers. Currently ranked no. 13 among food exporters with a target to get in top 10 by 2027. Due to its rich natural resources, vast low-cost workforce and well-developed food-processing sector, Thailand is exporting both raw food and value-added products to international markets like China, Japan, Europe and the United States. The value of Thai food export was in 2020 around 216 billion DKK. The food production and export has shown strong resilience during the pandemic. As a result, the food and agriculture sector is on top of the agenda for the Thai Government employing almost 40% of the workforce and occupying 50% of the total land area.

In order to achieve the overall goals for the industry there are high demands for further actions on competitiveness, resource efficiency and sustainability. If one adds, growing consumer demands for advanced ready-to-eat, more natural and healthier products there are many business opportunities for the Danish ingredients industry to increase its market share in Thailand. A new market research – based on interviews with companies - on the demand for advanced ingredients for sustainable food and feed production, list a number of concrete demands and potential projects. 

Thailand with a population of 69 million people has more than 10.000 food-processing factories and is a major importer of advanced food ingredients. Advanced high value ingredients as well as ingredients dependent on high tech processes are generally not available locally. 
Thailand imported food ingredients for around 3 billion DKK in 2020. This accounted for a 50 percent share of F&B imports mainly for industry. Whey is a major category followed by enzymes, sweeteners and protein concentrate. The top 5 sources of imports by trade value are Singapore (37%), USA (11%), Indonesia (8%), China (7%) and Denmark 3,7%. 

On top of that, Thailand has a well-developed animal feed sector that supports the huge poultry sector producing around 1,7 billion broilers per year, the production of around 20 million pigs per year etc. The import of feed ingredients amounts 4 billion DKK. Feed companies are in particular looking for natural-based additives to reduce the use of antibiotics and new amino acids that can enhance nutrition utilization in order to reduce the overall cost. Finally note, that Thailand is the World’s 4th largest pet food exporter, a market expected to grow 5-10% annually.
