- SHEWON was established in 2017. Starting with the family business which is home of swallows bird’s nest at Bangsaphan,Prachuapkirikhan province,Thailand. We spent more than 5 years in the business of bird’s nest. Originally, we would sell raw bird’s nest to other entrepreneurs. But at the present, we find out that more people tend to consume healthy foods and also focus on comfort in consumption. So we have established “SHEWON” under the brand management by KCDINTERTRADE CO.,LTD.which produces a variety of bird’s nest products for the need of modern consumers. So it is the source of the company slogan “Functional for Health and Wealth”. Good health, you can choose.
