They claimed that CPF has caused pig farmers to lose more than 7 billion baht because of their price reduction of pork in the past six months.

The protesters gathered at Lumpini park in Bangkok and walked to the building. They put a wreath in front of the building, demanding the company stop expansion, and then reduce the breeding of pigs.
