Thailand is one of the world’s leading agricultural suppliers, primarily due to its well-developed food processing sector. The country has one of the most advanced food processing industries in Southeast Asia, which enables Thailand to export value-added products to international markets like Europe, Japan, China and the United States. Major food exports include rice, canned tuna, sugar, chicken meat, cassava products, shrimp, and canned pineapple. According to the National Food Institute, Thai exports grew by 7.3 percent in 2018 to total U.S. $32.2 billion in 2018.
