SECTOR OVERVIEW

The sector employs several million people in Thailand and account for significant portions of household expenditure. In spite of the political instability of 2013 that led up to the military coup the year after, Thailand’s military government continues, as of early 2017, to receive majority support and royal backing from the newly-annointed King Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun. This has set the country’s overall economy and the food and beverage sector on an upward trajectory, despite increased competition from Thailand’s regional neighbours and economic slowdown in the country’s major trading partners China and Japan.
