Thai plant factory expanding beyond borders while adding new crops

“Wangree Fresh was designed for education, tourism, and visiting. We’ll have a vegetable shop and a restaurant and provide visitors with a chance to enter the farm and see exactly how it works,” says Krisana Tamvimol, founder and CEO at Wangree Fresh, a plant factory that cut its ribbon in Thailand in March 2022.

Wangree Fresh has a growing area spanning 400 square meters and reaching 8 meters tall. The farm can produce 10 tons of vegetables per month, with a daily output of 300-350 kg.

Located in a residential area, Wangree Fresh is excited to offer consumers products that are delivered within three hours of harvesting. The farm has partnered with academic institutions and the government to develop a technology that makes cultivation cheaper and delivers functional, affordable vegetables to consumers.

The new farm

Wangree Fresh can grow more than 100 types of leafy vegetables, falling into the four following categories: Thai vegetables, Japanese vegetables, Chinese vegetables, and Indian vegetables and herbs. The products are available by subscription and are sold at the supermarket price. While this does not necessarily reduce the consumer’s grocery bill, it allows them to access clean, safe, and nutritious products.

“For us, it is important to grow without pesticides as Thailand ranks fifth in the world for pesticide use. Food safety is difficult in Thailand, and products often travel an average of 700 km. What we do is a requirement for urban consumers,” says Krisana.

Wangree Fresh has recently changed its brand name to DiStar Fresh and is expanding all over Thailand and beyond, with its product portfolio also expanding to include fruiting crops and cannabis.
