Study period start from 1 October 2013 to 31 May 2014. Initially, Food entrepreneurs improved their production places follows the Primary GMP standard and for the Primary GMP evaluation at Nakhon Ratchasima Provincial Public Health Office.

In 1 October 2013 to 31 May 2014 study period; the total score of passed entrepreneurs was 89.09±6.12%. The scores for each category were 89.52±5.46, 95.56±9.94, 89.32±8.47, and 88.51±12.68% for category 1-4, respectively. This development project was not effective to improve the number of applied and passed food entrepreneurs.
