Charoen Pokphand Foods Case Study

With the vision to become “the Kitchen of the world“ CPF recognizes the importance to operate in a socially and environmentally responsible and sustainable manner based on the principles of good corporate governance. Whilst CPF is committed to sustainability, the organisation also recognizes the importance of sustainability reporting and complying with international standard and guidelines.

In recognition of LRQA’s reputation, CPF approached LRQA in2013 to undertake a Sustainability Report (SR) verification audit. LRQA’s proven track record of working with high-profile clients spanning a variety of sectors and the competency of its project team - who has participated in Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Sustainability Reporting Guidelines working groups to produce the GRI’s Technical Protocol assured CPF that LRQA has the knowledge and expertise to help and meet CPF’s requirements and organisational objectives. With its strong management commitment, CPF achieved their SR verification again in 2014 and 2015 through LRQA.

Moving Forward

Food quality and safety lies at the heart of the CPF. The company will continue to develop innovations to produce high quality products in a safe manner to their consumers while keeping in mind the environmental and social impacts throughout its value chains to contribute to the sustainability of its business and society as a whole.
