Mr.Sooksunt added that livestock farming has faced with oversupply problem particularly pig in Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. As a result, price has dropped to lower level than last year. Pig price in Vietnam plunged by 40% forced the company to sell meat lower than production cost. This also reduced the company's profit.

In addition, the company gained higher benefit sharing from its associated company and joint venture together with higher income from the divestment have encouraged its net profit to reach Bt12.933 billion during the first nine months this year, nearly the same of last year.
