Providing Sweetness Since 1945
Thai Roong Ruang Sugar Group, founded by Mr. Suree Asdathorn on May 7, 1945, proudly stands as Thailand’s first privately-owned sugar factory. Our origins trace back to the challenging post-World War II era, a time when Thailand faced a critical sugar shortage. Recognizing the need, the government encouraged private initiatives to build sugar factories.
Amidst these times, Mr. Suree Asdathorn, widely known as “Thoukae Lin,” emerged as a visionary. Confronted with the high costs of importing production machinery, he ingeniously applied his mechanical expertise to locally produce and assemble key components of sugar manufacturing machines. His innovative approach, bypassing the need for expensive imported parts, was not only a triumph of ingenuity but also a crucial step in ensuring our continuous and successful operation.
Today, Thai Roong Ruang Sugar Group has grown to be one of Asia’s leading sugar producers and exporters. Our journey, rooted in resilience and innovation, has seen us expand to operate six state-of-the-art sugar production facilities. Our history is not just a tale of overcoming adversity – it’s a story of setting new standards in the sugar industry and continuously evolving to meet the sweet needs of the future.
