Recently, CP Foods together with CP Meiji and Major Group have donated ready-to-eat meals, milk and popcorn for the staff working at the vaccination site.

Moreover, CP Foods includes export-grade shrimp wonton ramen from Authentic Asia as part of the campaign, a product contains low sodium and is made of high quality raised-without-antibiotics shrimp. 

“CP Foods will continue to supply food to the staff who dedicate themselves to this good cause. We are giving out our best quality food product to express the upmost respect and gratitude toward people working here,” Mr. Pairoj said.

Major Group Chief Marketing Officer Narute Jiensnong explained how the organisation gives away its ready-to-eat popcorn products as a token of appreciation for the medical workers who are working tirelessly for this mass vaccination plan. 

“Popcorn is the number one product for film fans, thus we would like to share the product that gives moviegoers happiness to doctors, nurses, and volunteers who are working on this long and difficult task.”

Mr. Narute added that Major Group is pleased to continue to support healthcare workers and volunteers together with CP Foods.
