Company background

Charoen Pokphand Foods is the core agribusiness arm of Thailand's largest conglomerate, Charoen Pokphand Group, with sales accounting for about 30% of the group's revenue.

Its main businesses are animal feed, shrimp farming and livestock farming. It also operates restaurants, food courts and retailers, such as CP Fresh Mart, a small supermarket that sells CP products.

The company's roots date back to the 1920s, when the founders started a small seed shop in Bangkok. They then expanded the business into animal feed production and later livestock farming, processing, marketing and distribution.

CP Foods has subsidiaries in nearly 20 countries and exports to more than 40. In 2012, it acquired CP Pokphand, which is in charge of agribusiness operations in China and Vietnam, from CP Group and made it a subsidiary. In 2014, it sold 25% of CPP's stake to Japanese trading house Itochu as part of a cross-shareholding deal between Itochu and CP Group.

CP Group and CP Foods Chairman Dhanin Chearavanont took over from his father in 1969. Adirek Sripratak, the company's chief executive officer since 2003, is not from the founding family.
