How do Thai restaurants and Thai grocers in Malaysia get their supplies of Thai cooking materials and packaged food? The answer is simple, the supplier will dispatch a truck, which will drive hundreds of miles from Thailand to deliver the goods to your doorstep, thus skipping the middlemen.
The most popular items carried by these delivery trucks from Thailand are sauces, essential for any good tasting Thai food. They range from Maepranom brand sweet chili sauce, fish sauce to dark soy sauce and even bags of fresh herbs. The existence of such delivery truck means the Malaysian distributors are losing a big chuck of their foodservice sales and has to rely more on the consumer pack business.
