MNEs and Global Integration of Thai Processed Food Industry:
A Firm Level Study

By: Dr. Archanun Kohpaiboon

The study presents the findings of firm-level case study examining the  
role of MNEs in processed food exports from Thailand. Four major  
export items-canned pineapple, canned tuna, processed shrimp-are  
covered, focusing on both FDI and non-FDI channels of MNE involvement.  
The findings suggest that MNEs have played a vital role in the  
expansion of processed food exports from Thailand.
