The Livestock Development Department buried about 24 tonnes of frozen pork, which originated in Brazil and was smuggled into Thailand from a neighboring country, at a landfill in Phayuha Khiri district of Nakhon Sawan province.

.

The pork was seized from a cold storage facility in Samut Prakan on September 11th. It was delivered by truck to the department’s quarantine zone in Phayuha Khiri district for destruction, to prevent the possible spread of African swine fever (ASF).

 

Officials from the department said that Brazil has no agreement for the export of pork to Thailand and it is a country in which ASF has been reported.

Quite frankly, I'd trust the Brazilian Pork over the Chinese Diseased carcases any day of the week..........methinks this was done because a brown envelope fell thru the crack, so they retaliated by saying it was smuggled..........article says there is no agreement between Brazil and Thailand to import pork................I saw a lot of Brazillian Beef in Top's and Central in my days................suspect, bvery suspect.  They could have turned it into dog food, once cooked well, no flu.   This was pure retaliatioin, nothing less.

From a commercial point of view; I wonder how much cheaper the pork meat must have been in Brazil to send it across the Pacific via Singapore to a "neighbouring" country from where it got "smuggled" into Thailand to be sold at the local price levels. 

Taking the costs of a cool chain (freezing)  of sea freight container transport, little envelopes at the "neighbouring" country, smuggler reefer truck to Thailand ....... the mind boggles.

There's more to this story as well but in all fairness, who cares .............

I did, in the local street markets, but the price still rocketed.

As has chicken eggs, at least 25% in the last year
