Bangkok, Thailand-based Siam Canadian Group is planning to open a division to deal with imports into the Chinese market.
The company, which is run by founder Jim Gulkin, already has an office in Zhanjiang, Guangong province, which handles sourcing and sales of Chinese seafood.
“We are going to start off small and slow. We are looking at setting up a small office to manage imports and it will be “learn as we go” type of thing.
We are not going to go out with any big fanfare,” he told Undercurrent News.
The business will handle seafood, but also other foods, he said.
At the same time, the company is still working on imports to Thailand, which is growing “bit-by-but”, he said. “It is a tough market, it is very competitive.”
