On Friday, 13th July, a partnership between Thanachart Bank, MBK Center and Pathumwan Princess Hotel invited everyone to take part in a “Support Thai Farmer Young-Yim-Dai” initiative at MBK Skywalk. In support for Thai pineapple farmers, who are suffering from
a disastrous fall in prices, the partnership purchased over 16,000 kg. and gave them away free
to visitors to the Skywalk. In addition, they could try home-made pineapple drinks, pineapple ice-cream and pineapple fruit salad. In support for our commitment to reduce the use of plastic in society, people were asked to bring their own cloth bags to carry the pineapples away.
The hotel also encouraged guest’s participation by offering complimentary pineapple as part of room service, and pineapple was on the menu at our buffet breakfast and dinner. The event was a great success, and we are happy in the knowledge that, as well as helping are farmers, this popular fruit is now being consumed in over 10,000 households!
