TV host hit with defamation suit over rice chemical claims

- +

The Charoen Pokphand (CP) Group has filed a defamation case against a popular television show host who posted a message on his Facebook page naming rice mills that allegedly used a chemical to fumigate rice, resulting in contamination. 

The Charoen Pokphand Group's complaint is that TV host Suttipong Thamawuti (right) refused to respond when they tried to explain and demonstrate the actual process of storing and packing rice.

Sumeth Laomoraphorn, chief executive officer of International Trading Business at CP Group, said on Thursday that Suttipong Thamawuti, founder of TV Burapha and producer of the Khon-Kon-Khon (Man Discovers Man) programme, had damaged the rice industry's reputation by commenting on the use of chemical fumigation for rice packaged under the Royal Umbrella brand.
