CP food plantCharoen Pokphand Foods (CPF), part of Thailand’s CP Group, helmed by the country’s richest man, Dhanin Chearavanont, opened the first phase of a six-plant food-processing complex to a media visit on April 18.

The new sausage plant in Bangkok’s Nong Chok district is equipped with $52 million automated processing line system that is designed to up productivity, as well as ensuring that raw materials are securing through additional storage facilities.

This automated line will in effect reduce the number of workers needed from 400 to 20, ensuring higher food safety because of less contact with human hands, Sukhawat Dansermsuk, executive vice president of CPF, told media present.

The other five plants in the planned mega-complex will focus on the production of convenience meals, sausage, ham and bacon, soup, sauces, and premixed ingredients.

The six-plant complex is being designed to further position the Thai food giant as a lead exporter as the country prepares for liberalised trade under the ASEAN Economic Community, expected to be formed in late 2015.

The Nong Chock sausage plant is the second in CPF’s portfolio, with the other in Saraburi, giving the company a combined annual production capacity of 80,000 tonnes.

CPF’s major export markets for its sausage are Laos, Myanmar and Cambodia.
