Risk Management

The company enforces sustainable sourcing policies and upholds the highest procurement standards, while pursuing high-quality service in delivery, in addition to supplier assessment processes and supplier engagement activities. ThaiBev has developed strategies and systems to manage its supply chain and ensure business continuity, and to avoid negative economic, social and environmental impacts, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
