Cambodia pork imports are falling as local farmers breed more pigs. The President of the Cambodian Livestock Raisers Association Srun said that pork imports have dropped during the Coronavirus pandemic. The domestic supply has increased dramatically.
“Currently, the supply of pigs in the local market from local farmers and breeders is about 85 percent…and the rest of the pigs are imported,” he said.
‘Some traders are unhappy because the government has restricted imports from abroad.’
Others say too many pig imports could hurt local farmers’ livelihoods, and may lead to an outbreak of African swine fever.
