Kalo Rice Inter Product Co Ltd was registered as a corporate, with Janesan Techasuriyanant serving as a managing director. The company later posted on its Facebook page claiming the products found during the inspection are not the products the company manufactures.

Another team of police and FDA officials raided the company’s Kalo packaging office in Phasi Charoen district. 268,200 empty Kalo boxes were found.

They also found evidence suggesting the company might have hired celebrities to endorse the products and sold them overseas.
