The other day on my weekly shop at Tesco I found some Thai brand cocoa cereal and thought I have to try it – at 20 Baht a packet it was no big expense, unlike buying any imported cereal where you almost pay double what you would pay in the country of origin.

Given the majority of it was in Thai it was quite a quick read but then I noticed the company details. With a name like European Snack Food Co it is quite easy to imagine what they might produce.
But what I did wonder was why a company would spend money on designing packaging and making their product look professional…
