Where We Stand…

Most of materials we use are sourced locally where there are regulations concerning GMO cultivation and labeling in place. ThaiBev operates in full compliance with those requirements. As for other major components which are from overseas origin, such as, barley malt, they are generally cultivated from non-genetically modified crops.

Under normal circumstance, ThaiBev does not use any GMO materials in our beverage products. However, we are committed to monitor and label if it becomes applicable in the future. We expect our suppliers to disclose the usage of GMO content in their materials supplied to ThaiBev as well to ensure that our consumers are able to make well-informed decisions.


Our Protocol




ThaiBev and GMO
Our Approach on Genetically Modified Organism (GMO)

As Thailand’s leading food and beverage producer, Thai Beverage group (hereafter “ThaiBev”) is aware of increasing demands from population growth over the past decades. We strive to meet our consumers and customers’ requirements whilst at the same time maintaining our quality standards. In order to do so, we support and encourage responsible application of innovations and technologies.

In global level, despite being a highly controversial issue, genetically modified organism (GMO) has been widely used to enhance production. ThaiBev has recognized its potentiality in food and beverage industry. However, we are fully aware of the sensitivity of this subject matter and respect local public opinion. We accept governmental control and supervision on GMO cultivation and usage in the country we operate.

Most of materials we use are sourced locally where there are regulations concerning GMO cultivation and labeling in place. ThaiBev operates in full compliance with those requirements. As for other major components which are from overseas origin, such as, barley malt, they are generally cultivated from non-genetically modified crops. Where the ingredients of our products derive from or contain GMO, we shall clearly label them on our product as well as establish traceability and communication systems to ensure that our consumers are able to make well-inform decisions when purchasing our products.

Additionally, ThaiBev is committed to ensuring that the materials we use come from safe sources and that they reach our consumers’ hand untainted. Each shall undergo food safety testing protocols before they enter into the market. Whether or not they are GMO-derived ingredients, the same protocols may apply universally.
