The department’s director general Sorawit Thanito said Thailand exported 2 million pigs worth around Bt13 billion from January to October this year, marking an increase of 344.30 per cent from the same period last year.
He added that 769,000 tonnes of chicken meat and related products worth Bt89 billion was also exported in the first 10 months of this year, marking a 0.67 per cent increase from the same period in 2019.
Of the chicken products, fresh chicken accounted for 58.5 per cent and processed chicken 41.5 per cent.
Sorawit said this success could be put down to Thailand’s food safety and balance in production.
