CP Cambodia, a company involved in food business for the past 12 years – since 2008 until today – has from the very start put in place safety, quality and stringent food control activities to ensure all the end food products meet the highest international standards.
As with all countries, the food industry in Cambodia is also evolving rapidly with food industry owners driving change towards producing a healthier and high quality food to meet consumer demands.
In the past, Cambodia relied on limited imports of food products as the people were focusing on fresh food and simple food production, with an uncomplicated production systems. Today, however, as the country changes, so does the technology, and the needs and attitudes of the people which is also changing and growing rapidly. In addition, food-borne illnesses are on the rise, giving consumers a choice in finding quality and safe food for themselves. Food business, meanwhile, has also been modified accordingly.
Our company has been keeping up with the changes, as we understand that consumers are constantly seeing changes in their lives and behaviours. But, what we care about and believe in, is the quality and safety of the food and the production system that is recognised by the international standard system. All this is done to build trust among customers and consumers.
The company’s focus is on creating good manufacturing standards and for this it continues to research and produce flavoured food products, including the development of new products to meet the preferences and needs of consumers of all ages.
Today, CP Cambodia has been recognised for its standard of good production system according to the international standard system. As we focus on food safety for the people across the country, it is considered one of the important things for the company to focus on to help promote and develop the country.
As to the operations, the company focuses on policies that does not harm the environment and society. We pay close attention to environmental protection and remodeling, both inside and outside the facility, manufacturing, building structure management, equipment uses, maintenance, cleaning with location and proper equipment management, safe production process management, ranging from production planning to raw material control systems during production, packaging, quality control and delivery, as well as chemical management, recording systems to monitor product quality data. All employees are trained to work in a very hygienic work environment to ensure the production of safe and high-quality food products.
Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) is a system for managing good hygiene practices in food production to ensure food safety, quality and confidence in consumers. This system covers the building location and structure, the production system, the beginning of the production plan, the raw material control system, quality control and delivery control, as well as the good sanitation management system.
Meanwhile, HACCP is a risk analysis in food production and it is a food-based quality assurance system to take action to eliminate impacts on consumers that may occur at each stage of the production process and eliminate physical, chemical and microbiological risks and ensure safe food production. The HACCP system adheres to the Codex International Standard System, which can effectively manage and prevent hazards or exposure to microbiological, chemical or physical interactions for food safety.
Cambodia imports food products from many different countries due to the limited production capacity of the country and is striving hard to comply with the international standard system.
