With the expansion of the government's free school milk programme, the Dairy Farming Promotion Organisation (DPO), which sells Thai-Denmark branded dairy products, and Nongpho Dairy Co-operative both announced they would increase their processing facilities to meet the demand for milk from schools.

Meanwhile, in January, French dairy giant Danone said it was considering using Thailand as a production base for the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) market following the implementation of the ASEAN Free Trade Area (AFTA). The company has already shown its confidence in the potential of the Thai market by investing THB572mn in a processing plant in Ayutthaya that opened at the start of 2010.
