Thailand's mangosteen production will increase by 38% to 380,000 tons this year

It is the season for the production and listing of critical economic fruits in Thailand now, such as durian, mangosteen, and rambutan.

According to the Ministry of Agriculture, the total output of mangosteen in Thailand will reach 378,378 tons in 2022, increasing 38% year on year. The reason is that bad weather and quality problems caused damage to production last year. However, mangosteen trees were not affected by external factors this year, and the yield is higher. Judging from the production situation of mangosteen in the southern region, it will be difficult to reach the expected output this year. due to the impact of bad weather.

The current fruit-producing provinces of Eastern Thailand, Chanthaburi, Rayong, and Trat have been gradually exporting since April 2022. Still, the quantity is not yet large, and 50% of the output will be exported in May.

Recently, the number of mangosteens exported by farmers has increased. Under China's zero Covid policy,  a large number of export products are stranded at border checkpoints. At the same time, Thailand's long-term exporters and sorting and packaging plants have also temporarily stopped purchasing. They spent 1-2 days on regional cleaning and physical condition testing of workers, resulting in a decline in the price of mangosteen in Thailand.

In terms of exports, a number of exporters, sorting and packaging plants have started normal procurement plans at present, and the average export price of mangosteen has risen from 50-55 baht/kg last week (May 2-8, 2022) to 60-70 baht/kg.
