About Us

Who are we?

Essence of Thailand was born out of our desire to bring the Real Flavours of Thailand to everyone in the UK & Europe.

For many years we have supplied major retailers across Europe with a wide range of Thai produce. Now we are bringing a wider range direct to you, straight from our farms in Thailand.

We supply major retailers, independent shops, top chefs & restaurants, health food & wholefood stores, and of course we offer home delivery direct to you!

Why is our product different?

Simple - We Focus On Flavour & Quality!

Everything we do is all about delivering the very best flavour to our customers.

Where possible, all of our fruit is picked tree ripe and the sent immediately to you. This means you are tasting the fruit exactly as it should be - picked in it's naturally fully ripe state!

This means our products taste fantastic - just try our Mangoes, Lychees or Rambutans and you will instantly know what we mean.

If you are used to buying Fresh Produce from Thailand, you will find that the quality of our product is exceptional. We do not hold stock. Everything is picked and packed specifically for you & brought straight to you. This means that not only does it look & taste great, but it has significantly improved shelf life.

For Grocery items we have picked the most authentic Thai sauces, curry pastes, rice and noodles, to bring you everything you need to create the perfect Thai recipes.

What do we offer?

We offer the full range of Thai Fruit, Vegetables, Herbs & Spices and we have also developed a range of Stir Fries, Curry Kits, Noodle Dishes and Fresh Ingredients.

We have a full range of Thai & Asian Grocery products which we have chosen to offer the very best quality with authentic flavours. From authentic Thai Hom Mali Rice to Thai Shrimp Paste & Fish Sauces, we have everything you need to make authentic Thai & Asian food.

We offer both whole and prepared Fresh Produce, and for restaurants and catering customers we can create bespoke recipes and pre-prepared produce.

We aim to bring the best flavours to you in the UK & across Europe.

We offer direct delivery to your home, office or restaurant. We also offer bulk deliveries.

We grow Kaffir Lime leaves as a botanical for our gin, but needed more than we can provide for a special order. These frozen leaves are ideal - still full of flavour and really fresh....!

Tried Essence of Thailand because I couldn't get my sushi rice from my usual store. The rice I got from here was better quality and cheaper in price. I am well pleased with my purchase and the service received.
