At the 25th Visayas Area Business Conference last September, Pilmico launched a new product called The Care Package, high energy biscuits that meet health and nutrition needs during times of emergency.
With the event’s focus on regional socio-economic resilience and adaptability, Pilmico First Vice President and Chief Resource Officer Maribeth Marasigan shared to over 200 public and private sector delegates how The Care Package can help local government units, corporate foundations, and NGOs optimize disaster relief.
The energy boosting biscuits contain 450 kilocalories each—equivalent to one full meal—and, more importantly, essential vitamins and nutrients, all without sacrificing taste. It offers an efficient relief mechanism to address malnutrition in addition to ease of transport and storage compared to perishable and bulky food packages that require heating or refrigeration.
