CP Cambodia unveils ‘CP Sausage Contest 2020’ winners as seven-inch sausage enters market

Following the launch of CP Cambodia Co Ltd’s latest product innovation – the seven-inch sausage, which was specially introduced to meet growing consumer demand in the local market – the winner of the “CP Sausage Contest 2020” was announced last Saturday.

The agro-industry and food business giant’s new sausage comes in several signature flavours – original chicken or pork, chili chicken or pork and cheese chicken or pork.

Weighing a hefty 100g, the sausages are flavoured with some of Cambodia’s world-famous spices such as Kampot pepper and star anise, while only natural preservatives are used in its production.

To ensure its success in the Kingdom, Cambodian staff were actively involved in researching and developing the taste of the jumbo sausage.

As part of its campaign to promote the latest product, the company organised the “CP Sausage Contest 2020”, which was held between July and September.

Participants were asked to submit either a 15-second video or photos of the seven-inch sausage.

Ten participants walked away with attractive prizes – from a Yamaha X-Ride motorcycle for first place, followed by an iPhone 11 Pro Max. Eight other winners received Oppo F11 Pro smartphones.

“CP sausages are delicious. I would like to thank CP Cambodia for creating the ‘CP Sausage Contest 2020’ because it gave an opportunity for the public to compete and win attractive prizes. I hope the company will create more competitions like this in the future,” said Phan Sochi, the winner of the second prize.

Third prize winner Sopheak Mungkul said: “I am really happy because this was the first time I took part in such a contest. I would like to thank CP for giving me the opportunity to participate and for giving away such wonderful prizes. I also hope CP will create more delicious sausage flavours.”

Another contestant, Heng Sovandara said: “The ‘CP Sausage Contest 2020’ competition helped me to learn how to create videos, and I am very happy to win a smartphone. I hope CP will organise more competitions so customers can continue to participate and have fun.”

The contest was held to promote a new seven-inch sausage produced by CP Cambodia.
