Mango mania: Thailand’s sweet export boom

Thailand’s mango exports soared by a staggering 130% in the first quarter of this year, reaching an impressive 1.6 billion baht, compared to the same period last year. Not to be outdone, exports of sticky rice saw a notable increase of 13%, totalling about 1 billion baht.

Chotima Iemsawasdikul, the Director-General of the Trade Negotiations Department, attributed this surge to the growing global popularity of Thai mango sticky rice. Recently ranked as the world’s second-best rice pudding by TasteAtlas, this beloved dessert has captivated taste buds worldwide, opening new opportunities for Thai exporters.

“This ranking has significantly boosted the demand for mango sticky rice in many countries.

“It’s a prime time for our exporters to capitalise on existing Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) with ASEAN, China, Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, India, Chile, Peru, and Hong Kong.”
