CPF currently generates around two-thirds of its revenue internationally and the company wants to hit 15% revenue growth in overseas markets.
In a separate announcement, CPF said it aims to be the "world's kitchen" and has given "highest priority" to producing "high quality" pork products. The company also said that it is raising investment in its shrimp supply chain in response to recent attention around sourcing and labour practises.
