"CPF puts emphasis on relentless technology development and we are pressing for an improvement in the inspection process. We expect to launch online traceability service within 2018, to educate consumers of the upstream-through-downstream sourcing of materials, from feed meal to livestock farms and processed food. We are doing this to enhance confidence in our products," Mr.Sooksunt stressed.
