The Ministry of Commerce plans to hold talks with the Egg Board of Thailand to seek measures to deal with the recent substantial drop in chicken egg prices.
The Commerce Minister, Sontirat Sontijirawong, said today that egg prices have decreased due to an excess supply of eggs in the domestic market. He said his ministry and the Egg Board will meet to find ways to deal with the situation.
Mr. Sontirat said the ministry will initially help small farmers by selling their chicken eggs at the government’s Blue Flag outlets, where low-priced consumer products are being sold. The ministry will also look into the country’s imports of chickens used for breeding, to prevent egg prices from falling further.
The Commerce Minister said farmers, who are under contract or have been pressured by business operators, can file complaints with the ministry if they believe that they are being unfairly treated.
