But when looking deeper, it was found that Farmers face the problem of very low prices for their produce. especially garlic To the point of pouring it in front of City Hall to demand justice.

When the garlic product received good response, 3-4 years later, we began to look at tiger beans. which the Lisu tribe It is popular to grow and produces very good yields. But the market is limited to a specific area. The villagers rely on local wisdom to roast them with salt. But the packaging is not very good. It easily causes fungus. Short shelf life Therefore, we have developed this section. There are even products released for sale, such as roasted tiger nuts. Tiger Nuts Tiger Nut Oil There is also Roasted soybeans, Khao Khae or Shan popcorn under the brand Nuat Khun Lung and recently   new products have been launched. Various flavors of ice cream Using tiger beans as a base with the brand “Ice’Bean” (Aisubeen) By Kung Khun Lung.”
