CP Foods See A Good Year Ahead


Charoen Pokphand Foods (CPF), an international food company, which owns the largest shrimp farming venture in Thailand, is expecting a substantial rise in net profit in 2014.


Adirek Sripratak, CPF’s president and chief executive officer, said total sales were projected to grow by at least ten percent to more than $1.2 billion in 2014.


The serious spread of early mortality syndrome (EMS) had a big impact on CPF’s shrimp production in 2013.  Mr. Adirek said performance would be boosted this year by a drop in raw-material costs, rising prices of meat products—and an easing of the EMS problem!


CPF has not seen any impact on its balance sheet as a result of the current political turmoil in Thailand.
