The route to be the famous “Taokaenoi”
brand in seaweed market

Itthipat was a typical boy who loved to skip school and play video games. However, in 2002, his family struggled financially and the family debt exceeded 40 million baht, which inspired his ambition to help his family from their troubles. After that, Itthipat experienced a series of difficulties while working to find a solution, and finally discovered an original and tasty idea for seaweed.He focused on an innovative cooking method and flavor as a selling product and sought cooperation with the popular 7-Eleven branch of stores to sell his product. Itthipat relied on complete self-study and research, and never gave up on his idea, success-fully putting Taokaenoi seaweed on 3,000 7-Eleven shelves. Today, Taokaenoi continues to build on our founder’s dream of creating inventive and delicious seaweed snacks and selling them to happy customers all over the world.
