In an increasingly globalised world, with an ever-growing number of people working abroad, expat shops are booming, as individuals crave a taste of home.
One of the biggest things you miss when you move abroad is being able to buy your favourite grocery brands.
In fact, it’s extraordinary the emotions that food can evoke, some expats get so excited about a bottle of Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce because they want it on their bacon sandwiches or a bar of Galaxy chocolate to have with your morning coffee.
In the past you had to get used to the idea that your groceries may have to be sourced from several different outlets, however, not anymore!
The recently opened The Pantry Expat Food & Beverage in Jomtien is a one-stop shop.
Shoppers can snap up everything from Cadbury’s chocolate, to Bisto gravy granules, PG Tips, Heinz baked beans, Walkers crisps, cans of your favourite ales and stouts, pastry and savoury delights as well as a comprehensive range of frozen products, meats, cheeses and tinned goods, basically all your pantry basics.
“If you’re an expat, The Pantry is a place to go to be at home from abroad, and for Thai’s it will evoke mystery and excitement, many Thai’s that have travelled abroad can be reminded of their time there when they come to The Pantry.”
