Critics call for 7-Eleven boycott from 7th to 11th of May

Different consumer advocates called in for a boycott of 7-Eleven branches to protest against the business practices of its sister company CP all.

An online campaign has called for people not to shop at any 7-Eleven stores for five days starting May 7th.

The boycott follows after alleged negative business practices and chain of supply from the line of farms and natural products to frozen food supplies.

“7-11 May. Let’s teach the big boss. You won’t die if you don’t shop there,” reads the campaign announced by Facebook user Arwin Intrungsi, who claimed consumers should at least teach the company a lesson.

The campaign comes after a series of incidents landed the franchise in dispute with the public.

“It’s five days. You won’t die, and he won’t go out of business because he’s so rich,” Arwin wrote, referring “Mr. CP” Dhanin Chearavanont. “He will at least gain some conscience that doing business must be fair. Don’t take advantage of others. Don’t CP (Copy and Paste.)”

The campaign comes after allegations the company engaged in some unsavory business practices involving the conglomerate’s dealings with a non-CP supplier. According to Thai blogger “Assuming,” the company canceled a large deal it had just signed with “Siam Banana” as soon as the supplier provided the delicious trade secrets to making its “Tokyo Banana” snacks.

CP denies all accusations concerning stealing the recipe but said that it will only sell Siam Bananas products at 200 national branches of its own Kudsan Bakery instead of all 8000 stores.

As for the boycott, many people saw no point.
