Del Monte moves into Asia through Thailand...
US based fruit and vegetable giant has picked Thailand as its production base for selling into the Asian market thanks, in part, to the country's abundance of fruit and vegetables grown year 'round.
Del Monte has established a joint venture with local sweet-corn producer Agripure Holdings, Japan's Kikkoman Corp., a leading soy-sauce maker and sole licensee of Del Monte in Asia (except India and the Philippines) and Samroiyod Corp, a major local pineapple-grower and exporter.
