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.
