Growth rate declined due to falling price of livestock product and stronger exchange rate compared with the previous period. However, the recovery in pig price in Vietnam and Thailand since April 2018 is a positive sign for the business, contributing the company to be confident that the performance will achieve goals for 2018.

Overseas investment in 15 countries accounted for 66% of total sales while the domestic sales and exports accounted for 29% and 5% respectively. Top three markets for the company are Thailand, China and Vietnam which made up for 73% of CPF's total sales.
