The Start of Soybean Oil Production.
The Thai government allowed soybeans to be imported freely under the WTO policies and at the same time consumers were becoming more health conscious, so Thanakorn started to introduce 100 % soybean oil under the brand “COOK” to the market. It became widely accepted by the consumers and still retains its popularity today. Thanakorn was the first vegetable oil manufacturer in Asia to use the Ice Condensing Vacuum System (ICS) in the refining process to produce excellent quality vegetable oil. Thanakorn was also the first vegetable oil manufacturer in Thailand to use Nitrogen gas instead of tertiary butyl hydroquinone or TBHQ.
