PTG has joined hands with the Department of Interior Trade (DIT) for a campaign to support farmers. Customers who fill up with 300 baht of fuel or 100 baht of LPG will get a pack of onions, shallots or garlic at 657 participating PT gas stations in 25 provinces across the country. The campaign also aims to help people who are suffering hardship from increased living costs.

PTG executive vice-president Rangsun Puangprang said the company joined hands with DIT to purchase 90 tonnes of onions, shallots and garlic from farmers in the North as the current price is low. The move will relieve farmers’ hardship by enabling them to sell their produce at a fair price all season long while also stabilising the price of agricultural products. PTG will hand out 300,000 packs of this produce to PT Max Card holders who fill up with fuel or LPG at the participating stations.
