CJ Foods Vietnam - Best place to work in Asia in 2021

To aim higher, CJ Foods Vietnam continues to improve itself on a daily basis. Thanks to all the positive contributions from each member of the company, CJ Foods Vietnam was honored to be voted by HR Asia - the leading prestigious magazine on human resources in Asia - as one of 2021’s best places to work in Asia.

As a company that aims to improve people's lives through its products, CJ Foods Vietnam is aware of its influence on the community. Moreover, CJ Foods Vietnam fully understands that the success of the business is reflected not only in the business results but also in the common values of the community to which the business contributes.

Presenting gifts to flood compatriots in the Central region in 2020

In order to help locals overcome difficulties in the flood season, CJ Foods actively cooperated with a youth newspaper to present flood-affected persons with practical gifts from the company's quality product range. This contribution from CJ Foods lifted their spirits and helped them overcome their difficulties. Simultaneously, a volunteer group from CJ Foods Vietnam also travelled to the Quang Son commune to share the burden with the locals there, and also gave them many gifts and cash to help them overcome the storm No. 9 in 2020.

Actively joining hands in the fight against Covid-19

In addition to continuing to serve consumers with essential products during the difficult times of this pandemic, CJ Foods Vietnam has also made significant contributions to the pandemic prevention in the locality and the community. In 2021, while continuing to provide Vietnamese consumers quality products, CJ Foods performed an essential role in the Covid 19 pandemic prevention during the difficult production process. CJ Foods donated ambulances and protective equipment to the People's Committee of Tan Phu District as their contribution to the district health system for the treatment of infected patients. In August 2021, CJ Foods Vietnam also provided hundreds of meals each day to keep front-line soldiers fed during their arduous pandemic prevention duties.
