Corporate Social Responsibility
Contributing positively to the communities in which we do business is an integral component of CPC’s value system. From making targeted donations to organizations in need, to providing world-class training and educational opportunities to our staff, assisting the Ministry of Agriculture and supporting orphanages, we never miss a chance to further the development of the Egyptian poultry sector and engage with the community to address crucial social issues.
In keeping with our long history of cooperation with Egyptian institutions working to promote agriculture, CPC participated in several initiatives to upgrade the faculties of agriculture at Cairo, Alexandria and Ain Shams universities. The company also sponsored attendance at the American University in Cairo’s annual Poultry Pathology conference in 2011. In the aftermath of the Egyptian Revolution, CPC stepped up to give support to various organizations that are working to assist those injured in recent events. Funds were contributed to both the Kasr El Aini Hospital and the Kasr El Aini Friends Association.
Our employees are at the heart and soul of CPC’s operations, and we strive to provide them with opportunities to enhance their skills through education and training. CPC offers opportunities for employees to pursue MA and PhD degrees, as well as in-house summer training courses and scholarships to train and study in Egypt and abroad.
Health and Safety
Maintaining the highest international standards in health and safety has always been a top priority at CPC. We meticulously implement the most up to date bio-safety and bio-security measures available in order to provide our customers with the highest quality products possible, and ensure a safe environment for our employees.
At CPC it is crucial that our operations do not have a negative impact on the environment. We are committed to implementing and utilizing the latest technology in our facilities to comply with international standards for environmentally friendly production techniques.
Community Job Creation
We believe that, when given the chance, even the most underprivileged groups in society have the ability to succeed and thrive. For this reason, CPC works with local orphanages to produce uniforms worn by employees in our laboratories, factories and farms. By sourcing uniforms from orphanages, CPC has created an economically sustainable project that gives orphans the chance to earn money and develop important skills that will sustain them economically into the future.
Research and Development
As a pioneer in Egypt’s poultry industry, we feel that it is our responsibility to transfer our know how to advancing the sector as a whole. To this end, the company works with Egypt’s Ministry of Agriculture on research and development projects and provides facilities and funding for the development of testing farms. CPC also donates one-day-old chicks and feed to researchers carrying out groundbreaking research on poultry production and related areas.
