Army launches budget fast food project


BANGKOK, July 2015 – The Royal Thai Army has launched a budget food project in a bid to help low-income earners through the economic difficulty.

Deputy army spokesperson Col Sirichan Ngathong said Royal Thai Army Commander Gen Udomdej Sitabutr had instructed different divisions to set up budget meal outlets in their army camps or nearby communities to offer affordable choices to the general public.

The outlets will sell various freshly-cooked dishes, such as fried rice, curry, scrambled eggs and noodles. Each item will be sold for no more than 20 baht.

Aside from the budget food project, the Army has planned to run Blue Flag mobile discount markets in different communities. The budget food outlets and Blue Flag markets will be held together in locations that are conducive to the two activities.
