Competition from frozen Malaysian durian puts Thai exports in prickly situation (September 15)
Export of Thai durian to China is under competition from frozen Malaysian durians, according to Thai Durian Association Facebook post. Currently, Thailand is the only country to export fresh durians to China, while both Malaysia and Thailand are allowed to export frozen durians to China. In the future, exported from the Philippines, Laos, and Vietnam might be the competitors for Thai durian in China, who are now trying to get the permission to export durians to China. Besides, the success of local growth of Thailand’s Mon Thong and Malaysia’s Musang King durians in Hainan, the southern province in China, might also be the new competitors.
