Pork vendors are struggling to keep customers, with prices soaring from 150 baht per kilogramme to over 200 baht/kg in just two weeks. At Bangkok Noi and Bang Khae wet markets in Bangkok, vendors express their dismay and growing concern. A vendor says prices are high at pig farms and slaughterhouses. Normally, he orders seven whole pigs each day and sells out. Now, it is difficult to sell even one, because his customers are choosing to buy cheaper meat, like chicken.
