The Myanmar Thanakha Planters, Producers, and Exporters’ Association will display and sell thanakha products (paste, logs, stumps) at the Thailand Natural Product expo in Bangkok, according to U Kyaw Moe, the president of the association.
The exhibition will be held from 10 to 13 July, and only organic products will be showcased and sold at the expo.
“The association aims to promote Myanmar thanakha (traditional yellowish-white cosmetic paste made from the ground bark of the thanakha tree) in the foreign market, along with the various types of powders produced naturally from the thanakha root and cortex. In addition, the Shwesin, Shwebo Thitsar, and Shwe Pyi Nan brands are jointly participating at the expo,” said U Kyaw Moe.
Earlier, thanakha cosmetics companies had exhibited products at the international expo. This is the first time the association is participating in the event. — Myo Win Tun (Monywa)
