Meanwhile, Thomas Tan, Senior Division Manager for Perishables commented:

“This is the 2nd time we are holding this event after a very successful try out last year. Although we were under movement restriction, that did not stop Thai food lovers from thronging AEON with the opportunity to savour various types of snacks, fruits, vegetables and other food products directly brought in from Thailand to satisfy their taste buds. This year, we are bringing in more assortments on top of the existing ones to further entice foodies all over the country and at the same time, giving lucky customers a chance to win a trip for two to Thailand.

“We are truly honoured to have been blessed with a strong relationship with Thai manufacturers, farming communities, exporters and Thai Embassy for us to have this wonderful chance to showcase how diverse the Thai products are and are well-received by our local community of all walks of life.” he said.
