Tapioca Chip is a very important crop in Thailand. Each year, it brings an income of more than 80,000 million baht per year. It is grown by more than five hundred thousand farmers. Moreover, it generates a lot of employment opportunities. Recently, Thailand’s export of Tapioca Chip has been facing a strong competition. Most importantly, importing countries have introduced trade barriers on the quality and standard of the product. This greatly affects Thailand’s production and export of Tapioca Chip products in the world market. The Department of Foreign Trade of the Ministry of Commerce as a governing body in charge of importing and exporting of Tapioca Chip products is looking for an effective ways to solve the growing problems by implementing the project called "Clean Tapioca Chip Project" from 2001 to present.
