CPI has been enjoying 50% business growth annually from the past five years, which has helped the company to achieve sales turnover of 28,000 million baht.
Targeting to be the world rice leader, the ￼ “Royal Umbrella” pre-packed rice and ￼company has been achieving such vision through its successful rice business model – the classic full integration strategy (from farm to table). The concept of food safety and business sustainability has been practised and imbedded into the day-to-day operation so as to serve the need of global consumers.
Winner of the Prime Minister’s Award in 2005 for “Best Exporter” and “Thai-owned Brand”, C.P. Intertrade Co., Ltd. (CPI), is an international trading subsidiary of Charoen Pokphand (CP) Group of Companies, Asia’s leading business conglomerate. CPI has been enjoying 50% business growth annually from the past five years, which has helped the company to achieve sales turnover of 28,000 million baht or nearly US$1 billion in 2010.
This dramatic success lies upon CPI’s business philosophy of customer centric, professionalism and innovation. Product quality, state-of-the- art technology as well as production facilities, strong marketing and sales network worldwide, intensive and extensive brand building of “Royal Umbrella” pre-packed rice and foodstuffs are its key success factors. Its human resource is also second to none in this rice business area worldwide putting CPI and Royal Umbrella Brand on top of the chart of high-performing rice business organizations.
Today, with the newest facility – a one- million-ton rice processing factory located on the Pasak River in Ayutthaya Province – a strategic location of paddy supply and water transport – it is regarded as one of the best and biggest facilities on earth. Besides, the Inland Container Depot (ICD) being built adjacent to the rice facility is the first river ICD in Thailand, which helps to conserve the environment by using motor barges instead of conventional trucks to transport both export and domestic cargo.
However, its high commitment to all of the above-mentioned success is “How can we help Thai farmers have a better life and more sustainable future?”. Such is the highly challenging task which it says it must achieve at the end of the day.
