THAILAND - One of Thailand's top poultry producers and exporters, CP Foods, has joined an industry partnership to improve labour practices in the sector.
Prasit Boonduangprasert, Executive Vice President of Charoen Pokphand Foods Plc (CP Foods), said the company has realised customers give high priority to sustainable businesses, particularly in terms of environment, traceability and social responsibility through to labour standards.
As a result, CP Foods has committed to comply with international labour standards and entice stakeholders to comply with good labour practice (GLP) guidelines.
“International customers are not only considering quality, product integrity and prices. They are expecting assurance from producers that the products are environmentally friendly produced. Labourers are well taken care of without abusive issues, including child and illegal labour as well as human trafficking,” said Mr Prasit.
“CP Foods is confident that GLP compliance not only elevates workforce quality of life, but also bolsters the good image of Thai broiler producers towards international buyers, whilst raising competitiveness of the industry in the international market,” he added.
