Thailand's chicken exports to China are forecast to increase

20 December, 2019

Thailand's chicken exports to China are forecast to increase by 60% next year, as China seeks alternative meat supplies after an outbreak of swine fever nearly halved its pig herd. China's pig herd is about 40% smaller than a year ago. Demand in China for alternative meat supplies, is expected to drive up the volume of Thai chicken exports to 80,000 tonnes next year. That is 60% higher than this year's 50,000 tonnes, which was already nearly triple the 18,000 tonnes exported to China in 2018.
