"Sathaporn Paisanburapa, Managing Director of Burapa Prosper Co., Ltd., reveals that ESG scores are another way to build credibility for global success."

 

 

 

      Sathaporn Paisanburapa, Managing Director of Burapa Prosper Co., Ltd., joined and gave a keynote speech at the SMART SME 2024 "EMPOWERING THE NEXT WAVE" seminar organized by Post Today on the topic of "Lessons Learned for SMEs to Adapt to the New World."
.

      Burapa Prosper Co., Ltd. is a rice flour producer that has been adapting for the past 48 years of its operation. Since the first day it started developing its product, "Hom Mali Flour", it has faced changes in many aspects, from the change of era in management to the change of market and the popularity of rice varieties for consumption.
.

      Burapa Prosper's adaptation focuses on developing product quality. Rice flour production utilizes cutting-edge production innovation no less than coffee bean production. Technology is used to control production factors, even to the level of rice smell and aroma, to maintain product freshness and quality. This has enabled the company to export its products to over 30 countries.
.

      The company currently produces a variety of products, such as rice flour, glutinous rice flour, single-base flour, tapioca starch, and more. These are commonly used as ingredients in cooking. Rice flour is particularly popular in Asian countries, but the company is now expanding its market to Western countries as well. For example, they offer gluten-free flour and glutinous rice flour for mochi ice cream.

A key adaptation for the company is ESG or sustainable development, which is a concept that has been continuously discussed in the United Nations. This includes reducing the use of plastic packaging by switching to more durable plastic types to minimize plastic usage. As a result, the company has reduced plastic usage by more than 30 tons.

Additionally, the company has implemented the following ESG initiatives:

  • Water used in rice milling and kneading is used to grow vegetables which are then distributed to the community.

  • Solar panels have been installed to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 667 tons per year.
    .

    In addition, the company is developing a new type of rice flour called "Starch" which is extremely white. This flour will be used as a substitute for food additives that were previously used to prevent health problems. The company also has the idea of using rice washing water to ferment fertilizer, which will be rich in nutrients that will help crops grow and flourish.
.

        This ESG score not only helps develop the company's internal operations but is also another business advantage that shows that the company is ready to move in the same direction as consumers. It is a way to build trust in the company's commitment to becoming a sustainable organization that does not seek profit alone but also benefits society and the world as a whole.

.

This is what led Burapa Prosper Company to receive the Krungsri ESG Awards 2023.

.

 

      However, success in ESG requires a number of factors, from the commitment and dedication of management, to the cooperation of employees, to the appropriate support from the government. These are all important variables that help make sustainable development a reality.
