PTT executive vice president Jiraporn Khaosawas said farmers were welcome to use petrol stations as outlets to sell their crops directly to buyers.
Jiraporn said the PTT made the decision after the price of pineapples had fallen as low as Bt2.20 per kilogram at a time when farmers had to invest about Bt4.60 per kg.
She said the PTT has already cooperated with the governors and chief agricultural officers of several provinces, including Chachoengsao, Lampang, Uttaradit, Prae and Phitsanulok, to provide space in PTT stations for farmers to sell pineapples.
Some products made from pineapples would also be on sale at PTT headquarters until the end of this month, she added.
