s high and is up and down in year. This problem of an import have resulted in small farms having problems for many years.
This similar problem exists throughout the economic system, but the “Egg” became an issue because Thailand is unique in measuring the prime minister with the egg. In every year the price of eggs to be effective lack of a capital ,equal capital and get profit in year.
The case of egg price and injustice in Thailand.
The main problems about egg prices are up because the quota pushed up the price of breed stock and small farmers had to rely on large corporations for their breed stock and also the food for the entire stock. With the corporations also in the Chicken and egg business, small farmers are squeezed out of the business, and the maximum temperature has risen, which is far higher than at the same time last year. The ideal temperature is 28-30C effect to hens stressful and less productive and lack of clean water in some areas has also caused the hens to become ill and lay fewer eggs.
The period of the year in Thailand when it is not so hot and rainy ,the high cost of chicken feed is also a factor, In addition egg prices are up because the price of young chicks has almost doubled.
From The price of eggs in Thailand is high effect to the food sellers have to carry the burden of rising prices of eggs as they continue to cook food for customers. If the government does not resolve this problem, all sellers in the market will have to increase the price of an egg.
The government should try to support the farmers. Egg prices have been go up
Other governing bodies must address farmers complaints because they are under the influence and control of large business groups
The quota pushed up the price of breed stock and small farmers had to rely on large corporations for their breed stock and also the food for the entire stock. With the corporations also in the Chicken and egg business, small farmers are squeezed out of the business
I admit, I was lost. For a few days there on my True cable TV-I thought I was in an egg and chicken land. OK-normally, True like runs these CP Farm infomercial boosting all the time.
Like you know it-if you have True and in Thailand-you are now an expert of CP Farms, ready to tell anyone that CP Farms is the best run farm on the planet-with very high tech and also extremely environmental friendly. If that is not more-like CP going to Singapore to stage a major “Food” who can eat the most of CP festival-broadcasting back into Thailand-like wow, who would not be impressed.
Well, Matichon, a newspaper here in Thailand is not all that impressed.
So I’m read Matichon’s story on the “Thai Egg Index” and then came to understand why True cable TV-was going ballistic with egg and chicken related story-sort of became the CP’s “Cable TV Index” on eggs and chicken.
The price of eggs in Thailand is important-in that the price is an “Index” of the skill of the government in managing the Thai economy. It is called “The Egg Price Index.” While Thailand’s economy is expected to expand about 6% this year-most poll when they ask the Thais about the economy-have been and continues to say that “The Economy is Deteriorating.”
Perhaps, one reason is because egg price has sky-rocket in Thailand-like never before-hitting the highest price in some 10 years. Literally speaking, this is big news in Thailand-where the food of the poorer Thais-are mainly fried and boiled eggs.
The following article points to agricultural conglomerate-and in fact the article points to CP, Thailand largest agricultural conglomerate as one problem for small Thai farmers.off course, supports the government of Abhisit-and is extremely anti-red shirt, who are mostly poor Thais in poor regions.
But I saw it with my own eyes, on True cable TV that belongs to CP-running this news and that about eggs and chicken-over and over-going to interview this expert and that expert-saying pretty much that CP did nothing wrong.
Meanwhile, Prachachart newspaper and others-did very much what Thai Intel did a few week back-in exposing the Thai banking industry as un-justly keeping the bank spread and fees extremely high-hurting businesses and consumers. To put it simply, the banking industry was raking in the profit for the past few years-as everyone suffered in Thailand.
Then off course the Bangkok Post group-where Bangkok Bank biggies sits at the board and owns the company-saying very little-like exactly like True going “We are all good guys here.”
Well, even giving True and the Bangkok Post group-does this two cases “Eggs and Banks” points to a rise of “Farmers Rights” and “Consumers Rights” in Thailand
