S.Khonkaen was established in 1984 as a distribution company marketing the Thai nativefood produced in Khonkaen, a province located in the North-Eastern region, where the company’s founder: Charoen Rujirasopon intended to imply the place of origin of the products by integrating the name of the province as part of the company’s name.
Only 8 years after the establishment, the company had operated so successfully that the board decided to list the company in the stock exchange ofThailand on 27 April, 1992 inviting public invest in the company to share its growth. S.Khonnkaen became the first Thainative food company to be listed as public company.
Because meat products from hoof animal from Thailand can be exported only to few countries due to the Government policy,In 2007, S. Khonkaen has settled its production base in Poland to serve the demand of Asian meat products in European as well as Scandinavian countries.
In 2010, S. Khonkaen has started new business “quick service restaurants” to expand market channels and increase capability and profitability for the company. In addition, 2009-2010 we have restructured subsidiaries and downsized to focus on core business and clarify business structures of subsidiaries. Finally, we have changed company name into ‘S. Khonkaen Foods Public Company Limited’
