Thats right, you heard (read) it right… Asia Plantation Thailand are sorry! But what are they sorry for you ask? Well, this company went out of its way to use The Treedom Group’s marketing material and photos as their own. It went so far that they even used a photo of the Treedom Group’s CEO!
No point in me telling you all about it, have a read of the ‘apology’ here;
As we, Asia Plantation (Thailand) Limited have used photographs of Treedom Thailand’s (or Asia Forestry Management being the previous company name) Directors, plantations and factory in our advertisements and PR in online public media or in television programs.
Asia Plantation (Thailand) Limited and People Media Limited on behalf of those advertisement producers would like to clarify that all photos that appeared in the advertisements of Asia Plantation (Thailand) Limited was a mistake of Asia Plantation (Thailand) Limited production processes and may make people misunderstand that Asia Plantation (Thailand) Limited and Treedom (Thailand) (or Asia Forestry Management) are affiliated but in fact the companies are not related.
Further, Treedom Thailand Directors are not part of the Asia Plantation (Thailand) Limited business and are not involved with Asia Plantation (Thailand) Limited in any way. Again the mistakes of Asia Plantation (Thailand) Limited and People Media Limited have resulted in people receiving incorrect information. We wish to advertise to make people understand in the correct way and we are pleased to thank Treedom (Thailand) Limited for understanding our mistakes and reaching a compromise.
