The Founders’ Journey: Past and Present.

VIVIN Grocery’s inception traces back to “VIVIN,” a pop-up food vendor at the Bangkok Farmers’ Market in 2014. Co-founder Nicolas Vivin drew inspiration from his grandmother’s foie-gras terrine recipe, infusing it with innovative twists like incorporating local elements such as Phuket-based rum and Chiang Mai strawberries.

Nicolas Vivin, hailing from Roanne, France, and his Australian-Thai business partner and wife, food marketing expert Samantha Proyrungtong, embarked on a quest to promote local, sustainable gourmet fare. Initially, they faced the challenge of acquainting both local and international customers with the potential of Thai artisanal products. Undeterred, they expanded their range by collaborating with artisans from diverse regions of Thailand. Besides producing artisanal and natural goods, VIVIN Grocery actively engaged in quality control and product development, partnering closely with select producers to maintain excellence and experiment with new recipes and items.

From a Farmers’ Market stall in 2014 to a food supplier for hotels and restaurants in 2015, VIVIN ventured into boutique corners at Emquartier and Central Chidlom between 2016 and 2018 to reach a wider audience. Subsequently, VIVIN chose to refocus its efforts to better align with its boutique brand and operations, closing its mini corners. With newfound independence, VIVIN opened its inaugural brick-and-mortar store at Ekamai Complex and rebranded as “VIVIN Grocery” in November 2019.

Today, VIVIN Grocery offers over 400 product types and a ready-to-eat menu available for pickup and delivery. They expanded from their retail grocery to introduce a restaurant or a “Grocerant” (restaurant-in-grocery) in September 2020. VIVIN Grocery prepares All Day Dining meals at two locations (Asok and Thonglor), crafted with inspiration from Nicolas Vivin’s family recipes and fond memories of Roanne, Lyon, and Les Contamines-Montjoie, combining European and international flavors with Thai produce. This culinary philosophy is what VIVIN Grocery terms “Shelf to Plate.”

In August 2022, VIVIN Grocery introduced a second location in Asok, Sukhumvit Soi 19, known as “VIVIN Grocery – Café Asok,” offering groceries and a similar menu with distinct café vibes. In the evening, the café transforms into a bistro, featuring an ambient setting.
