We are a rice straw paper and packaging company located in Bann Samkha, Lampang province, Thailand. Our products are some of the most environmentally-friendly options on the market, with a manufacturing process that follows the zero waste management approach. We use rice straw in every part of the papermaking process.
I am Mrs. Jaruwan Khammuang, Fang Thai’s founder and CEO, and I do my best to help my hometown, Bann Samkha in Lampang province, Thailand.
In the village, most of the people work on rice farms as my family does and, after the harvest season, there are not enough jobs and villagers do not have the income to support their families. On the other hand, farmers get rid of the rice straw, the crop residue, by burning it, which produces smoke and CO2 emissions.
At the same time my husband Nathapol Khammuang and I, also realized that the paper and packaging industry is causing huge environmental problems around the world in terms of deforestation, CO2 and waste management. To transform this global crisis into an opportunity, we decided to make 100% biodegradable paper from rice straw and to avoid using any chemicals during the process. After two years of experimenting and meeting with experts and advisors, we developed a high-quality and environmentally- friendly product!
Currently, we are at full capacity selling small amounts of handicraft products and packaging. However, there are many big clients interested in Fang Thai's products so we need to increase our production capacity. In order to achieve this, we are looking for investors and crowdfunding support.
Fang Thai looks forward to finding more people interested and motivated in this amazing project. We welcome investors, clients and anyone else that would like to contribute to this eco-friendly business.
