Future forward at the Pilmico Congress

Every year Pilmico Foods Corporation, the food subsidiary of Aboitiz Equity Ventures, Inc., holds a student congress aimed at top graduating students in the field of Veterinary Medicine, Animal Science, Aquaculture and Chemistry. Now on its fourth year, Pilmico took it a step further and broadened its reach by inviting students from Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Industrial Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering.

With the theme “Nurture the Future”, the 2018 Pilmico Congress – formerly known as the Pilmico Jr. Veterinary Medicine and Agriculture Congress (PJVAC) – gathered 30 top graduating students and 20 PJVAC alumni from different colleges and universities across the Philippines.


The conference equipped delegates for the future highlighting each of their expertise and giving them supplemental knowledge in Animal Production & Nutrition, Engineering, Account Management, and Sales. Through creative ways of learning, the 2-day event encouraged the delegates to be an A-person, a proactive individual who can both be effective leaders and team players.

Delegates were challenged through exercises that build their responsibility for the community and ability to work with others. The congress prepared these promising young adults to be future leaders of the agri industry by providing them the opportunity to learn, network, and create lasting connections with like-minded individuals.

Chief Operating Officer

With advancing business and communities in mind, the Pilmico Congress pushed young adults to realize their impact in the community the Aboitiz way; by providing smart solutions, expert knowledge, and sound guidance, as they move towards a new chapter in their lives.

This year’s Pilmico Congress was held at Quest Hotel Clark Pampanga from October 26 to 28.
