Sunsweet CEO Dr. Ong-art Kittikhunchai said in 2018, production of sweet corn reached 128,000 tonnes, an increase of 25 per cent compared to the previous year.
“In 2019 our production capacity has been raised to 150,000 tonnes per year, and we will raise frozen sweet corn production from 5,000 tonnes per year to 2,000 tonnes per year,” he said.
This will raise the ratio of frozen sweet corn to 25 per cent in the company’s total production, leaving 60 per cent for canned sweet corn and 15 per cent for frozen and air-sealed sweet corn.
“Frozen and sealed sweet corn has a high margin and we are trying to lower production to balance with the amount of raw materials and orders, in order to maintain old customer base as well as catering to new customers,” he added.
