Charoen Pokphand Group (CP), the leader in agro-industrial and food industry, announces the collaboration with DuPont, the world’s leading science company, in developing sustainable innovative food solutions to meet consumers’ needs in Thailand and the region.

As part of the collaborative efforts between the two companies, the “DuPont Technology Day with CP” workshop was co-organized and attended by over 150 CP’s senior executives and R&D experts and DuPont’s food technologists. It was set out to exchange knowledge and experience in food production as well as to find new product ideas in response to the consumers’ demand in key markets such as processed meat & seafood, ready meal, ready-to-eat, beverage, and dairy products. Food packaging is also one of the key areas of the collaboration to create solutions that protect food freshness with greater taste and greater convenience for consumers.

Partnering with DuPont will allow us to apply the combined expertise and R&D capabilities of the two companies, and create innovative food solutions to meet consumer needs in Thailand and the region.”

“DuPont is the right business partner for us to embark on this sustainability journey. We do share similar values and the same broad vision in taking our food industry to the next level,” concluded Dr.Ajva.

“DuPont is committed to helping achieve a better, safer, healthier and sustainable food supply to feed the growing population. We believe collaboration is key. No company alone can solve the challenge,” said Hsing Ho, DuPont ASEAN Group Managing Director. “CP is one of our key growth partners for this region. We realize CP’s vision is in line with DuPont’s key focus in enhancing the food value chain through innovation.”

Somchai Laohverapanich, DuPont Thailand’s Managing Director, said “The collaboration on this workshop has been enabled by our Innovation Center that helps connect with a network of DuPont scientists and generate many new ideas and projects for CP.”
