Chomthana is committed to creating a ‘greener’ and more environmentally sustainable future.

Chomthana was featured today as one of the ‘2015 Leading CSR Green Companies’. Published in coordination with The Nation newspaper, the CSR Together Initiative (http://www.csrtogether.com/) featured over 100 companies in Thailand that are adopting green measures in their business practices.

Founded by the CSR Corporation, a green media and IT company, the CSR Together initiative encourages companies to help create a greener and more sustainable future for this world. Companies from all sectors were featured in this 106-page booklet.

Whether it be the installation of a waste water treatment plant, or the universal installation of energy-saving LED lightbulbs, Chomthana is continually seeking for opportunities to better fulfill all 4 of the CSR Together Campaign’s environmental goals. The goals are: water savings, chemical reduction, lighting energy savings, and air-conditioning savings.

Chomthana aims to reuse all of its manufacturing waste water and to reduce its energy consumption by 2018. As a leading ice cream manufacturer with a large production plant, Chomthana has a duty and responsibility to protect the environment and its people.

Citizens too can do their part in helping to reduce energy and water consumption in their home. Companies or buildings that have adopted green measures can become CSR members by visiting the CSR Together website: http://www.csrtogether.com/.

The CSR Together Booklet is available today at news shops and bookstores with a copy of The Nation.

Chomthana looks forward to a ‘greener’ and more socially responsible future together.

Sharing Happiness On Thai Mother’s Day

For a mother’s day special event, residents at the Half Way Home for Women in Rangsit, Thanyaburi, were treated to ice cream and buns by the Chomthana group. Celebrated nationwide, Thai Mother’s Day occurs on the 12th August every year and is a public holiday marking Queen Sirikit’s birthday. The Chomthana group, along with other local Thai volunteers, took part in a merit-making ceremony which involved donating and serving food to the charity.

The Halfway Home for Women is a special shelter that looks after mentally or physically handicapped women undergoing rehabilitation. The shelter was set up by the Ministry of Public Health and the Ministry of Interior Affairs, together with the Department of Public Welfare. The women are of various ages and are trained in skills that will help them build a life once they leave the shelter.

Despite the rain later in the day, it was a meaningful day for all the attendees. Special thanks to the organizers, Khun Apple and Khun Mai, as well as the volunteers and the charity.

Bunz Salapao’s Gains Popularity At the Centralworld Food Fair by Family Mart Thailand

Chomthana was represented by its dimsum brand ‘Bunz Salapao’ at the Family Mart Food Fair at Centralworld in Bangkok.

The crowds gathered at the wide open space in front of shopping complex Centralworld were luckily able to enjoy the various foods at the tasting stalls offering free food for the night.

Over 200 different food products were available for tasting; everything from cakes to delicious buns such as ours.

Despite the heavy and persistent rain throughout the day, when the event opened to the public at 1700, the rain miraculously stopped.

Chomthana & Bunz Salapao gave its salapaos (ซาลาเปา) or Chinese dim sum buns for the crowds to try. Premiering for the first time were our latest flavours: Green Tea Red Bean and Salted Egg with Minced Chicken.

As the event extended into the night, attendees devoured the Chinese dim sum goodies hungrily as the weather thankfully freshened up.

Chomthana would like to thank its supporters and Family Mart Thailand for giving us the opportunity to take part in this wonderful event.

We look forward to seeing you all at our next event soon!
