"Our goal is giving; giving to the local community. Let the community have the chance to benefit from Singha group's business success," Mr. Pongrat said.

The 3,000-acre Park is a major tourism draw card, receiving one million visitors a year.

Singha has launched projects to grow blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and passion fruits, all this among a plantation of tea trees arching across the landscape.

While Singha is responsible for development, investment, marketing and logistics of the fruit, revenues flow back to the projects' employees and the communities.

"We won't be the middle men, that would squeeze the margin," Pongrat said. Planned fruit exports include to Europe. "We have to share what we have with those who have not had the opportunities," he said.
