Malaysia’s chicken export ban signals deepening food protectionism

To address the forces disrupting the global food supply chain, a small chicken processing factory on the outskirts of Malaysia’s largest metropolitan area is not a bad place to start. It is clear that getting agricultural products from point to point is not just a logistical challenge, but a matter of national pride.

Malaysia’s poultry export restrictions are entering their fourth week. Singapore is a large customer, purchasing approximately 98% of live shipments. Some types of chicken are now allowed to move to the country’s southern neighbor, but commercial grilled chicken, which accounts for the majority of sales, remains blocked.
