The top supplier is Thai Union Group and has 25% of the market share.


Thailand’s top five notable shrimp suppliers:

- Thai Union Group (25% of national market share)

- CP Foods & Industry

- Siam Canadian Group Ltd.

- S&D Marine Products

- Chaivaree Marine Products

Large processors have contractual partnership with farmers and purchase on a spot-basis all year round. 

  • Reported by an ex-Thai Union worker, large manufacturers take in, on average, 100 MT of raw shrimp daily which is processed into 50 MT of ready product.

  • Can export between 80-100 FCL monthly

  • Even Thailand’s top manufacturers do not have vertical integration of the full supply chain

  • Too much resource and cost to directly invest in feedmill, hatcheries, and farms

Small to medium sized processors purchase from brokers or smaller farmers

  • Mid-tier manufacturers process about 60-80 MT of shrimp and export 2-4 FCL monthly
