Thai egg producers decry government’s import ban

28-04-2011 | |

The Hen-Egg Farmers, Traders and Exporters Association in Thailand has posted their opposition to the government’s plan to import eggs to combat rising retail prices.

The Association’s president Narong Jiemjaiburjong has warned that the present rainy season’s inclement weather has lowered egg production but that will soon increase. With the importation of more hens, production is expected to increase between 27 and 29 million eggs per day from the current 24 to 25 million eggs.
