The Thai Dairy Industry Co., Ltd. was set up in 1962 as a joint venture between Thai 
   and Malaysian businessmen with the Australian Dairy Corporation and was granted investment    promotion privileges by the Board of Investment. The goal of the company was to manufacture   dairy products thai would meet international standards in order to improve the health of Thai   consumers. The company's factory in Samutprakarn province became the first factory in  Thailand to manufacture sweetened condensed milk.

  " Mali " Develops Together with the Health of the Thai People

     In 1962, General Surajit Charusreni, Minister of Agriculture and Co - operatives, realized 
 that Thai farmers could produce annually many tons of raw milk. However, there was no Thai  company producing any dairy products for Thai people. So, he initiated the establishment of
 the first Thai dairy company.

     He negotiated with a group of Thai and Malaysian businessmen and the Australian Dairy  Produce Board to set up a company name " The Thai Dairy Industry Co.,Ltd. " The company's  mission was to process local raw materials into dairy products with an aim to reduce the  country's dependence on imports.

     In 1965, construction of the company's plant on Sukhumvit Road in Samutprakarn was  completed, and operations commenced with the production of sweetened condensed milk.
 It was then that the now familiar " Mali " brandname was introduced to the market for the first  time. " Mali " has subsequently become a part of daily life in Thailand, and continuous launches
 of new " Mali " brand products into market hace been met with the same wide consumer  acceptance as the orginal sweetened condensed milk.

     With a steady growth in demand through the years, a new, larger and more advanced plant
 has been constructed to take the company into the next century.
