Quality Standards Emphasized for New Year Gift Baskets

In a concerted effort to maintain quality in New Year’s gift baskets, the Office of the Consumer Protection Board (OCPB), chaired by Minister Puangpet Chunlaiad, convened today (Dec 19). The key focus of the policy meeting, held at the Office of the Permanent Secretary, involved discussions on labeling standards and product assurance for these festive offerings.

Prominent representatives from 10 leading companies, including CP Extra, Big C Supercenter, and Central Food Retail, among others, participated in the session. The central agenda revolved around ensuring that businesses maintain unwavering quality standards, particularly crucial during the bustling New Year festival.

Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin’s government has expressed significant apprehension regarding the potential sale of subpar or nearly expired items in holiday gift baskets. Stringent guidelines have thus been instituted, necessitating transparent labeling on these baskets. Details encompassing product names, types, manufacturers’ specifics, quantities, expiry dates, and other crucial information are now mandated.

Furthermore, Minister Puangpet advocated for the inclusion of One Tambon One Product (OTOP) and health-related items in these gift baskets. This strategic addition not only supports local communities but also ensures fair income distribution.

For consumer support or to lodge complaints, assistance channels are readily available. The 24/7 hotline number 1166, the OCPB Connect mobile application, and the official OCPB website at www.ocpb.go.th stand as accessible avenues for consumer concerns and inquiries.
