Cambodia’s pork sellers suffer as African swine fever fears linger

Taing Mengkea, an Orussey market-based pig business owner who purchases pigs from Mong Reththy Group Co Ltd and distributes them to many of the capital’s markets, said he previously sold 60 pigs per day before the outbreak, but now sells only 30.
