Meanwhile, Bangchak Corporation Public Company Limited will buy up to 460 tons of the fruit and will offer them to customers at Bangchak gas stations nationwide.

In addition, large supermarkets namely Tesco Lotus, Bic C, Makro, The Mall, and Tops have all signed a memorandum of understanding with the Department of Internal Trade to buy 2,820 tons of pineapples directly from the producers.

As a result of these agreements, Sontirat said pineapple prices will be higher, starting early July.
