ThailandUnique.com is a distinctive online marketplace offering unusual specialty foods, drinks, and gifts for both consumers and businesses. Established in 2004 by Graeme Lee Rose and his wife Warunee Rose, Thailand Unique now offers Asia’s largest selection of edible insects and bug-related products for both the retail and wholesale markets.
Together, they run the business from their home location in Udon Thani, Thailand, where they have built a private food factory and office onsite. The product line is constantly growing by popular demand and has been well-received by customers and companies internationally.
ThailandUnique.com is the go-to site for the world’s growing numbers of entomophagists – humans who consume insects – given their health benefits, as recently documented by the FAO. In fact, over 1,000 species of insects are known to be eaten in over 80% of the world’s nations. These folks know how to get their vitamins and lysine, courtesy of Mother Nature.
Thailand Unique believes that edible insects are the food of the future and aims to be part of this revolution. The products contain all the nutritional goodness of bugs without looking like them: for example soy-insect textured meat in ready meals, crackers, pasta, protein shakes and many more items in the development process.
Our food products are completely natural, organic and contain no artificial flavors, preservatives or colours. We are also working alongside professional chefs and nutritionists to help guarantee that the products we produce are of the highest quality and standard possible.
Other cool, creative, and unusual products from Thailand – and Asia – can be found on the site, including our own branded products such as scorpion vodka and whiskey.
Thailand Unique has come a long way since its humble beginnings offering a few lines of packaged bugs. Many new, exciting, and definitely unique food products will be rolling off our lines in the near future.
So please check back often to see what’s new, and feel free to contact us anytime with your comments or questions. We don’t mind being bugged – in fact, it’s our job!
