The company has a research centre in Bengaluru and a chicken processing plant in Chittoor in Andhra Pradesh for which it has invested $18 million.

"India is a key market for CP Foods globally and the launch of CP packaged foods is an extension to our commitment to deliver high quality chicken and value-added products straight from farm-to-fork. The packaged food industry is estimated to grow up to $50 billion by 2017 and we aim to play a significant role in it,” he added.
