Myanmar is exporting 80 tonnes of fresh chilli daily to Thailand, according to the chilli traders.
At present, about 10 or 15 trucks loaded with fresh chilli are entering Mae Sot through Myawady trade zone. Thailand has allowed importing with Customs clearance at an average price of 50 or 90 baht per kilogramme depending on the fresh chilli quality.
Thailand has allowed the traders to export fresh chilli with the pesticide recommendation free from the Agricultural Department.
The fresh chilli is produced mostly from Mandalay, Kyaukse, Yamethin, PyinOoLwin, Magway and Ayeyawady regions in Myanmar. The chillies unmixed with other chilli species and of the same size are earning higher prices.
The fresh chilli price is ranging between K900-1,200 per viss in the domestic market. The countries that are usually trading the chillies in kilogramme export them by the refrigerated container trucks to prevent them from deterioration.
The fresh chilli from Myanmar can only be exported to Thailand, and the quality of chilli is lower than Malaysia and Viet Nam. —Aye Chan Moe (Translated by Hay Mar)
