Thai Select

 

Department of International Trade Promotion (DITP) of the Ministry of Commerce of Thailand has launched the "Thai Select” program to certify and promote authentic Thai cuisine around the world. The certification is a seal of approval granted to Thai restaurants overseas that serve authentic Thai food and processed Thai food products. The certification’s objective is to increase the recognition of quality Thai restaurants and processed Thai food products as well as to encourage Thai restaurateurs and food producers to raise their quality while maintaining authenticity.

Receiving this prestigious award is not easy. In fact, “Thai Select” not only certifies the food, but also includes the interior decorations, sanitation, usage of Thai ingredients, number of Thai chefs, hospitality, and atmosphere of the restaurant in its consideration for the certification. The Ministry of Commerce of Thailand conducts preliminary audits on all applications before handing them to DITP. After the preliminary audit, the DITP conducts a further audit and certificate is issued after approval.

 

Three restaurants in Xiamen -- Swiss Grand Xiamen’s REDTHAI, Golden Elephant Bay Thai Restaurant (Wuyuanwan Store), and Golden Elephant Bay Thai Restaurant (Sanhang Store) obtained the “Thai Select” certification this year. The “Thai Select” seal is valid for three years after it is issued or renewed. The certification can be renewed at the same Thailand Trade Office where the first application for the award was submitted.

 

 

Direkgunabhorn


“The Most Admirable Order of the Direkgunabhorn” was established by King Rama IX on July 22nd, 1991, to be bestowed upon those who have rendered devotional services to the Kingdom of Thailand. On May 22nd, 2017, King Rama X, the current king of Thailand, endorsed ratification of the “Direkgunabhorn” award for
Mr. Chengzhi Guo, Chairman of Xiamen Mifeng C&O Trading, in recognition of his contribution to the sales of Golden Rabbit Brand Hom Mai Rice (金兔香米).
