Sanh found that the agricultural geography of Thailand qualified for planting cacao trees. The first cacao plant in Chiang Mai, Sanh crossed two cacao varieties and created his own hybrid called "I.M.1". He and Thip formed MarkRin Farms, to support and form a cooperative, so cacao farmers have a stable occupation since cacao is a monocrop and intercrop.
