Thailand; Shrimp Farmers Selling Directly to Supermarkets

 
To get a fresher, high-quality product at reasonable prices, food service operators, supermarkets and hypermarkets are opting to deal directly with shrimp farmers.
 
The French company Carrefour, the world’s second-largest retail operator (after Wal-Mart), plans to buy shrimp directly from farmers for its outlets in Thailand and abroad.  It plans to send a team of inspectors to one of its first suppliers, Kaset Somboon Farm Company, which operates more than 20 shrimp ponds in Chachoengsao and Suphan Buri provinces, to verify that the farm’s shrimp and farming practices meet Carrefour’s standards.  And all the shrimp must be chemical free.
 
Over the past few months, the merchandizing unit of Carrefour in Thailand has delivered several tons of fresh shrimp from the Kaset Somboon Farm to outlets in Thailand.
 
Carrefour might purchase as much as 10,000 tons a year for local outlets and some overseas outlets if the inspections, to be conducted sometime in January 2009, show satisfactory results.  That volume is too large for Kaset Somboon Farm to handle alone, so it would arrange for other farmers to help fulfill the shipments.  Kaset Somboon Farm and its allied farms also sell up to 30-40 tons a day of fresh shrimp to food markets in Busan and Seoul, Korea, shipped on Thai Airways’ late-night flights to ensure that the shrimp reach Korean markets in the morning.
 
In Thailand, Chanthaburi-based Sureerath Farm has already supplied organic shrimp to Tops Supermarkets, Villa Supermarkets and Siam Paragon, one of the largest shopping malls in Asia.
 
The Thai Department of Fisheries encourages direct sales to foreign food services markets and has entered into agreements with other countries to speed product verification procedures.  Thailand has 27,000 shrimp farms, and 21,000 of them have already met the Department’s Good Agricultural Practice Standards.  The remaining 6,000 will probably meet the standards in the near future.
