As part of the ongoing celebration of our 40th anniversary, East West Seed Thailand held a field day event over a span of five days at its headquarters in Nonthaburi, Thailand. During the event, we held fun and conceptual workshops from our experts, and showcased our more than 200 varieties of innovative seed products.
The opening ceremony was presided over by Remco van Wijngaarden, Netherlands ambassador to Thailand, EWS CEO Douwe Zijp and EWS Thailand General Manager Wichai Laocharoenpornkul. More than 700 EWS farmers were invited to the event to attend workshops, enjoy educational booths and to visit our fields.
This included four Thai farmers who were featured in the “40 farmers, 40 years of EWS” promotional program and book. Also, 100 APSA delegates attended the event as part of their post-congress tour. In total, attendance topped more than 40,000 as we celebrated 40 years under the theme, Netherlands in Thailand.
