C.P. Vietnam received the gold prize and five other awards at a joint ceremony for the Vietnam National Quality Awards (VNQA) and the Global Performance Excellence Awards (GPEA), which covered both 2019 and 2020 and were handed over by the prime minister.

The awards aim to honour businesses that have made outstanding achievements in improving the quality of products and services, competitiveness, operational efficiency, and regional and international economic integration. The prime minister signed decisions presenting the awards to 61 companies in 2019 and 55 companies last year.

Five branches of C.P. Vietnam were honoured with prizes covering all sectors in the feed-farm-food (3F) closed chain, with swine business of Branch 3 receiving the gold prize at VNQA 2020. C.P. Aqua Feedmill in the Mekong Delta province of Ben Tre and a livestock feedmill plant in the southern province of Dong Nai were also named in VNQA 2020, while Branch 3 of the food business in Ho Chi Minh City and Factory branch 6 in Dong Nai were honoured for the 2019 edition.

C.P. Vietnam president Montri Suwanposri said, “The corporation always innovates in producing and doing business to enhance the quality of products, services, and competitiveness, to maximise productivity, and to integrate into regional and international economies. Applying the standards of the VNQA will raise C.P. Vietnam branches’ awareness of advantages and disadvantages, opportunities and challenges, and then find solutions to accelerate productivity and build a sustainable development roadmap.”

In the swine business of Branch 3 in Dong Nai, all farms apply modern and environmentally-friendly industrial husbandry, and its pig total makes up the largest proportion of pigs in the province, known as the Vietnamese capital of husbandry. The branch was also awarded VNQA recognition in 2018.

Branch representative Kieu Minh Luc said, “We are so honoured to receive the gold award as recognition of the company’s efforts to strengthen production and enhance product quality.”
