Maitree Intusut, the Governor of Trang, presided over the opening of an event called ‘Trang local products to Phuket’ held at Tesco Lotus Department Store in Phuket during August 27th – 31st 2010. The event was held to promote Trang’s local products to Phuket residents. There were lots of Phuket people joining the event and buying Trang’s roasted pork which was the highlight product of the event.
Tada Pitchayaporn, Head of Office of Commercial Affairs Trang, said that this event was a part of the product development and promotion project. The province chose to promote its roasted pork as its OPOP (One Province One Product) since it was well known by people in other provinces. Apart from the roasted pork, there were a lot more local products from Trang including Trang’s cakes and sweets, Thep Tharo wood craft, Na Muen Sri textiles, Pum Pui tinned fish, and souvenirs made from rubber trees.
