Thailand: Possible pork shortage in January

10-11-2011 | | |

Current pork surplus may turn into a shortage as swine raisers are rushing to sell their animals for short-term profit in order to avoid risking greater loss from current flooding, says Pravit Asanatham, president of the Thai Pork Traders Association.

Reports state that the current over-supply has seen the swine price drop. “The severity of any shortage will depend on the government’s policy, especially involving the control of live swine exports – if they these exports can be kept at an appropriate level.
