Thailand resumes salted chicken exports to the EU

19-03-2012 | | |

As from mid-2012, Thailand is allowed once more to export salted poultry meat into Europe.

These exports had been forbidden over the last couple of years, as Thailand did not meet the European regulations with regard to animal health status and checks.

On the basis of several missions, the European Commission concluded that Thailand has made strong progress in this field, resulting in the approval of exporting poultry meat.

The annual import quota in the EU for Thai poultry meat is established at 92,610 tonnes.
