Charoen Pokphand Group had a very humble start in 1921 by two visionary Chinese brothers - Mr. Ek Chor and Mr. Siew Whooy, with a seed trading store named “Chia Tai Chueng” in Bangkok’s Chinatown. They sold imported seeds & fertilizers from China. Later, the company increased its scope from selling to the production of animal feed.
In 1946, the company was renamed Charoen Pokphand, meaning ‘prosperity for consumers’.
The company further integrated its business to include livestock farming, marketing and distribution under the leadership of Mr. Dhanin Chearavanont, the youngest son of one of the founders. By 1970s, the company had a virtual monopoly on the supply of chicken and eggs in Thailand.
CPF expanded internationally by launching feedmill operations in Indonesia in 1972, exporting chicken to Japan in 1973, and moving into Singapore in 1976.
CPF has become the world’s largest producer of animal feed and shrimp, and one of the leading producers of poultry. The entrepreneurial spirit and the company’s philosophy (Benefit to the Country, Benefit to the People, Benefit to the Company) has helped us realize the opportunities, develop necessary management and technical capabilities for a better future.
