  1. What’s up with food companies in Thailand buying up loss making companies…TU with red lobster, CPF Bellesio and now BR with Chef man…value destruction through acquisition.

    • BR bought chefman from BTS?

      TU – trying to shift away from being a pure commodity player – unsuccessfully thus far
      CPF – Who knows, left pocket right pocket?

      • BR partnered with BTS to buy a stake in chef man, that Red Lobster acquisition will come back to haunt TU, they are only making money off the tax credits and high interest from loaning RL money..
