Charoen Pokphand Foods PCL (CPF) has gained the Good Labour Practices' Poultry principle through its broiler farms across Thailand which ensures slavery-free status in the company's broiler supply chain.



 The company requires all suppliers to comply with international human rights standard and stresses the standard will significantly improve the quality of life for those who work in its supply chain. 

It will guarantee that they are treated fairly under the globally recognised practices.

The company said it has encouraged its contract farmers to comply with Good Labour Practices' Poultry in Thailand since last year. 

These farms were already audited by trained CPF employees this year. 

Parisotat Punnabhum, CPF human resources chief, said the team advise farmers to apply the practices through the transition, ensuring an effective compliance with GLP standard. 

He said Thailand places a great importance on labour practice and human rights.
