The beverage company has also announced the launch of Amayu, a 100% natural fruit juice created with coconut flowers produced by local farmers. The parent company has a range of Amazonian super fruit beverage under BIO Amayu.
The company works with local farmers in Ban Phaeo District, Samut Sakhon Province to source all-natural ingredients to obtain superfruit juices without preservatives or sugar. The drink will be sold at THB 50 per bottle.
