C.P. Foods Commits to Reducing Antibiotics

 

On October 18, 2017, CP Foods, one of the largest shrimp farming and feed companies in the world, announced a new policy for restricting antibiotic use in its aquaculture and livestock production, including chickens, ducks, fish—and shrimp.

 

The new policy commits to the elimination of growth-promotion antibiotics that are medically important for human use and to use them for therapeutic purposes only.

 

In addition, the company said it would work with global experts to find ways to improve the health and reduce the amount of antibiotics it was using to raise animals, though it did not outline specific actions or timelines for this.

 

CP Foods CEO Adirek Sripratak said the new commitments were binding for all its companies across the globe.
