Thailand to Gain Another Customer for Frozen Poultry

21 January 2015

THAILAND – South Korea is moving closer to reopening its doors to imports of frozen chicken from Thailand.

A letter has been sent to the Thai Embassy in Seoul spelling out South Korea’s desire to import the poultry meat. This is the fifth step in an eight-step procedure.

Remaining stages, which include disease control, testing and certification of butcheries and slaughterhouses, are expected to be carried out by June.

South Korea banned Thai frozen poultry following a bird flu outbreak last December.

Most chicken imported into South Korea comes from Brazil, which takes 40 days, as opposed to 10 days from Thailand.
