An in-depth description of the role

The company

Boon Rawd is a fifth-generation family business founded in 1933 as a beer company. It has since become a diversified conglomerate with five areas of focus: Beer, food & beverage, packaging, distribution & logistics and real estate. Boon Rawd enjoys market-leading positions in beer, soda and bottled drinking water in Thailand, along with meaningful positions in neighbouring markets, such as Myanmar and Cambodia. 

Values & Culture

Boon Rawd is first and foremost a family business. The company believes in treating its partners, associates and employees as extensions of this family. Honesty and integrity are core values within the corporate culture, reflected in its standing as one of the very few alcohol-focused companies to be bestowed the Royal Garuda emblem by the Kingdom of Thailand. 

Current situation

Boon Rawd is keen to grow its regional footprint, beginning with neighbouring Indochina markets and focusing initially on product categories in which it has a strong right to win.
