CP Foods Steps Up in Environmental Initiatives Against Plastic Waste

Charoen Pokphand Foods Public Company Limited (CP Foods) is stepping up its environmental conservation efforts, reaffirming its dedication to sustainable practices by decreasing plastic usage throughout its operations. Aligned with the Earth Day 2024 theme 'Planet vs. Plastics,' this initiative focuses on gradually eliminating single-use plastics and advocating for recyclable packaging across CP Foods' supply chain.

Kobboon Srichai, Head of Corporate Affairs & Investor Relations at CP Foods, emphasized the company's commitment to environmental stewardship alongside its mission to produce health-beneficial food products. CP Foods is integrating principles of the circular economy and the BCG Model to enhance recyclability in packaging and reduce plastic usage systematically.

The company's proactive measures include redesigning packaging to be more recycling-friendly and engaging employees in effective waste management strategies. These initiatives are part of a broader effort to foster a culture of sustainability within and beyond the organization.

Innovations in packaging are at the forefront of CP Foods' environmental strategy. The company's research and development team collaborates with industry partners to pioneer sustainable packaging solutions. Recent collaborations with SCG Packaging Plc (SCGP) and SCG Chemicals Plc (SCGC) have led to the development of innovative packaging materials, including innovations in pulp and polymer-based packaging and green polymer-based plastic solutions, which significantly cut greenhouse gas emissions.

CP Foods is advancing efforts to minimize overall packaging while increasing its recyclability and incorporating renewable or recycled materials in food packaging. Since 2015, CP Foods has been a trailblazer in utilizing bioplastic food trays made from polylactic acid (PLA). This progress is reinforced by the adoption of 100% recyclable mono-plastic films, streamlining the recycling process. Moreover, CP Foods is actively advocating for initiatives to maximize the utilization of recycled materials in product packaging, maintaining unwavering standards of food safety and quality.

Moreover, CP Foods has made substantial reductions in plastic usage within its production and transportation processes. Notably, the company's land animal feed business has transitioned from plastic bags to Bulk Feed Tanks, reducing plastic usage by over 13,216 tons in the past year. Similarly, in its aquatics business, the replacement of plastic bags withboxes has resulted in a further reduction of over 10,000 tons of plastic.

CP Foods remains committed to promoting environmental education and sustainable practices among its employees and neighboring communities. Through partnerships with local educational institutions and comm Q-Pass Tank unity organizations, CP Foods actively engages in initiatives aimed at combating plastic waste in a sustainable manner.
