Street food is one of the most characteristic aspects of Southeast Asian society, the continuation of a tradition that dates back millennia. It is increasingly becoming the preferred way of dining for both locals and tourists, and small businesses in this sector are popping up as far as the eye can see. Look no further than the interest shown in Greengear’s products during two recent events in Thailand: ASEAN SUSTAINABLE ENERGY WEEK, held in Bangkok from June 1st to 4th, and ITALIAN WEEK, organized by the Italian embassy again during the first week of June, and again in Bangkok. Both events reaffirmed the Thai government’s increasing focus on reducing emissions through a program that supports renewable energy sources. LPG is one of the “green” solutions that is already available and widely used in Thailand. It is especially worth noting the positive reception our Greengear products received from the public during Italian Week at our stand at Central World, Bangkok’s biggest shopping center, where we were also visited by Francesco Saverio Nisio, the Italian ambassador to Thailand. The Cavagna Group is reaping the benefits of this positive feedback, thanks in part to the fact that it has a production unit in Thailand.

A company dedicated to the development of Greengear

In order to develop the global market potential of Greengear’s products, Greengear Global Srl was founded in 2016. Headquartered in Brescia, the company is dedicated exclusively to the definition, organization and management of specific sales strategies and marketing plans for the Greengear brand. This choice highlights the Cavagna Group’s high expectations for new LPG applications. Greengear Global Srl recently opened a spacious store located at its headquarters.
