Siam Organic was happy to host a film crew from Asian Development Bank (ADB) last week. The ADB film crew was on the last leg of a project to film all six finalists of last year’s ASEAN Inclusive Business Awards. Selected from countries throughout the ASEAN region, the finalists included inclusive businesses from the Philippines, Laos, Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand.
For their project, ADB is producing a series of short films on all of the inclusive business finalists, telling the stories of their social impact through interviews with the people they are helping. During their visit with us, ADB interviewed the leader of one of our Jasberry farmer cooperatives as well as two of our Jasberry farmers. Our farmers were happy to tell their stories in their own words, and we look forward to sharing the finished video once ADB completes editing and production next month.
