Spirulina Voices Interview: Jiamjit Boonsom


Jiamjit Boonsom is a plantologist who founded Boonsom Farm in Chiang Mai Thailand over 40 years ago with support from the Thai government, FAO and USAID. The farm has now grown to 80,000 m2 of pond area.

Jiamjit emphasizes that spirulina is not only a health supplement, it is a food people can take every day. Boonsom Farm has innovated dozens of spirulina food, beverage and even skin care products with both fresh and dried spirulina.

For many years Jiamjit has hosted eco-tourism at Boonsom Farm, for people to come and visit, and especially for students to learn about how to grow spirulina. She hopes people all over the world will use spirulina as a daily food.
