Chinese dairy company Yili Group has collaborated with its Thai subsidiary Chomthana and Thailand Siam Dragon Association to deliver 170,400 face masks and other anti-epidemic supplies to the Thai Ministry of Public Health, Royal Thai Police and Phuket Police Headquarters, Thai Red Cross Society, and Pathum Thani Hospital to support Thailand's fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Distributed within a day, this is Yili's fifth international anti-epidemic supplies donation since the global outbreak, following deliveries to Iraq, Uruguay, the Netherlands, and Indonesia.

"Since entering the Thai market, Yili has always abided by the spirit of corporate social responsibility,"​ says An Zhengwen, a Yili representative.

"We hope that this donation can assist Thailand's frontline workers and protect the health of the Thai people."

Yili officially acquired Chomthana on May 8, 2019. During the pandemic, Yili and Chomthana have maintained strict measures to ensure employee health and safety; this has included distributing masks for all employees, conducting temperature checks and disinfection every morning and evening, implementing schedules for employee meal times, and carrying out emergency drills.
