Thai broiler chicken export target unaffected

Kukrit Arepagorn, manager of the Thai Broiler Processing Exporters Association is confident that Thailand will meet this year's export target of 450,000 tonnes of broiler chickens.

The recent floods, he says, have had little impact on chicken farms.

“Thai broiler exports totalled 435,000 tonnes last year, valued at 54.9 billion baht”, Arepagorn says, confident that Thailand can meet this year's export target of 450,000 tonnes.

Meanwhile domestic consumption has dropped about 15% in the past month, mainly because of transport disruptions caused by flooding.
