CP Foods picks SAP for sustained growth across global operations

The Thailand-based agro-industrial conglomerate Charoen Pokphand Foods Public Company chose multiple SAP solutions to drive further growth and competitive advantage to ensure the sustainability of their products for the future.

One of the world’s largest producers of feed, shrimp, poultry, and pork, CP Foods has operations in 17 countries and exports to more than 50 countries. 

Catering to more than four billion people globally, CP Foods is embarking on its next stage of digital transformation with SAP Sustainability Footprint Management, SAP Sustainability Control Tower, and SAP Environment Management, empowered by RISE with SAP, to future-proof its business and to gain strategic insight into the sustainability impact of its products, processes and infrastructure globally.

By implementing SAP sustainability solutions to record, report, and act on real-time sustainability data, drive carbon accounting at both corporate and product level, CP Foods is looking to realise the company’s Net Zero goals.

“Net Zero is the only solution to climate change,” said Prasit Boondoungprasert, Chief Executive Officer of CP Foods. “It is important to us to understand and reduce our impact on the planet so we create food that is not only safe and nutritious for people but also green and clean for the earth.”

Prasit said feeding livestock, farming food, and transporting them to people’s plates incurs emissions that they have to be able to record and report. 

“With RISE with SAP and SAP sustainability solutions, we will have insight into actual emissions automated in real-time rather than relying on manual averages, allowing us to make quick, informed, and sustainable business decisions for our operations, and for the planet,” he said. 

SAP will provide a technology foundation that will support CP Foods in complying with forthcoming carbon regulations in various markets, including the EU Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (EU C-BAM) and US SEC climate risk disclosures.

Paul Marriott, president of SAP Asia Pacific & Japan, said that sustainability is a huge opportunity for businesses across Asia. 

“Using RISE with SAP and our sustainability solutions, CP Foods is not only getting ahead of forthcoming emissions regulation, it is also future-proofing its business by using data to make more sustainable decisions,” said Marriott. “It can use those insights to drive more operational efficiencies, optimise supply chains, and differentiate its business against competitors.”
