1. C.P. VIETNAM CORPORATION
CP Group (Charoen Pokphand) is a multi-industry corporation and one of Thailand's largest corporations in the field of industry - agriculture.
In 1988, C.P Group entered Vietnam by opening a business office in Ho Chi Minh City. In 1993, C.P Vietnam Livestock Co., Ltd was established, and an animal feed factory was built in Dong Nai province.
In 2009, C.P Livestock Co., Ltd. Vietnam merged with Charoen Pokphand Vietnam Co., Ltd. to become C.P. Vietnam Livestock Corporation and then in 2011 changed its name to C.P. Vietnam Corporation.
C.P. Vietnam operates in the field of industry - agriculture. Since its establishment, it has constantly been expanding production and operating in 3 main fields including feed, farm and food.
Currently, C.P. Vietnam conducts animal husbandry with a modern and environmentally friendly livestock production system starting from quality seed to a modern breeding system equipped with advanced breeding tools and equipment.
According to the 2020 annual report of CP Group (CP Thailand), the group's agriculture segment in Vietnam (CP Vietnam) recorded a revenue of 3.4 billion USD, up 26% compared to 2019 and accounting for more than 18% of total revenue of the group. In particular, the largest contributor was the livestock segment (including poultry raising, pig raising and aquaculture), bringing in 2.4 billion USD, up 36% compared to 2019.
Masan MEATLife was formerly known as Masan Nutri-Science Company - a subsidiary of Masan Group, specializing in the production of animal feed.
The company officially changed its name in July 2019 to clearly show its goal of transforming from an animal feed manufacturer into a consumer goods company providing branded meat products.
At the end of 2020, according to the financial report of Masan MEATLife Joint Stock Company (MML), the company’s consolidated net revenue reached 711.3 million USD, up 17.4% compared to 2019. This is a positive result because not only has Covid-19 reduced purchasing power, but the cattle industry has also had to deal with African swine fever, which has caused the country's animal feed market to decrease by 18.2%, and the meat market by 17.5% compared to 2019.
It is said that this result was mainly contributed by the growth of the meat segment whose revenue in 2020 increased by 325% compared to 2019. Contribution proportion in net revenue increased to nearly 15%, compared to 3% in 2019.
Despite being the main revenue growth driver, huge investment to expand the distribution network for the meat segment has also caused MML to bear a quite significant burden. At the end of 2020, the company's total liabilites were 301.9 million USD, accounting for 38% of total capital and an increase of 38% compared to the beginning of the year.
