Rattapat Srichanklad, FLR349 Fund Secretary, has opened the first FLR349 shop in Chiang  Mai Province Thailand. Based at the FLR349 headquarters, the shop sells produce from farmers in the FLR349 network from Lhong Pong and Galyani Vadhana Districts.
Ratatapat buys produce form the network upfront weekly, and the profits are cycled back into the project’s reforestation work. At the present, the farmers’ network from Galyani Vadhana District is sending up to 20,000 baht (approximately 660 USD) of produce to the shop per week.

To reduce food waste the shop also purchases ‘b grade’ quality produce from the farmers, which would not otherwise be sold to customers. These along with the ‘a grade’ produce the shop was not able to sell and has started to decline in quality, while still being edible, are donated back to the community as part of the Food Sharing for Love campaign.
