Mr.Pairoj Apiruknusit, Senior Executive Vice President of Charoen Pokphand Foods Plc, (CPF) said that the company is willingly participating in helping to alleviate the suffering of shrimp farmers because of the steep decline in domestic white shrimp prices which resulted from the following falling global prices.
