Aviagen Sponsors 2nd CPF Customer Seminar and Golf Day08 November 2012
THAILAND - Charoen Pokphand Foods Public Company Limited (CPF) has held its second customer seminar and golf day sponsored by Aviagen. This year’s event was attended by over 50 representatives from the Thai poultry industry and included a number of broiler-focused presentations.
Held at the President Country Club in Bangkok, the event attracted a number of the major Thai poultry companies who were as keen to hear from the CPF and Aviagen teams as they were to play golf.
Presentations focused on the impact genetic improvements have had on husbandry and management as well as predictions for broiler production in 2013. Presentations were given by Larry Blackstone and Dr Keat Fu of Aviagen and Khun Prajit Udnoon, Executive Vice President, CPF who also opened the proceedings.
Orapan Chansawat, Aviagen’s VP Asia - Ross, commented: “Ross is the breed of choice for customers in the Thai market and part of the reason for that is the great support CPF offer in the marketplace, with the help of our technical teams. We are delighted that due to the ongoing demand for our Ross products from the Thai market place CPF have increased their GP intake.
“We want people to understand that we are a company that listens as well as talks, investing a lot of resource in research and development to supply a bird which is easy to manage but offers great performance. We appreciate the opportunity provided by CPF to once again interact with their broiler breeding customers.”
Khun Prajit Udnoon said: “Once again, we would like to thank Aviagen for its continued support in organising this interesting and enjoyable day for our customers. The Ross brand in Thailand is a real success story and the close partnerships between us and Aviagen is what has made this possible.”
