For Thai farmers, the Durian fruit represents both a major export opportunity and a significant challenge. BayG.A.P. helps farmers in Thailand implement the necessary conditions for Durian production in line with local and international regulations.
Thailand is one of only a few nations that exports fresh Durians to China – but to do so, farmers must meet strict regulations. Farmers require a certificate from the Thai Department of Agriculture in addition to various documents to ascertain sustainable production and compliance with safety standards. It is estimated, however, that only 20% of Durian exporters in Thailand’s southern provinces and 50% in the northeast have these certifications.
The BayG.A.P. Service Program helps farmers scale up their processes through practical training, farming advice, and verification support.
