Poultry production in Thailand

GAIN Report No. TH9109 4 September, 2019

Thai broiler meat production is forecast at 3.23 million metric tons (MMT) in 2020, 6 percent growth from the 2019 level, due to anticipated growth in export and domestic demand. 
Exports of chicken meat in 2020 should also continue to increase another 7 percent to 1.02 MMT, in anticipation of continued growth in exports to Japan and other non-EU markets such as China, South Korea, and Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).
Tyson Foods, Inc., a U.S.-based company, acquired on June 3, 2019, the Thai and European poultry businesses from BRF S.A., including four poultry production facilities in Thailand with a total processing capacity of about 90 million broiler birds per annum.
