At the 6th Go Negosyo OFW & Family Summit, Senator Cynthia Villar commended ‘Mahalin Pagkaing Atin’ (MPA) and Pilmico’s efforts in promoting local agriculture and sustainable entrepreneurship among FIlipinos.
“The Pilmico beneficiaries are very close to our hearts dahil kabilang dito ang ating mga OFWs. Nagpapasalamat ako dahil nabigyan kami ng pagkakataon na makipagtulungan sa inyo para mabigyan ng kabuhayan and ating mga OFWs (overseas Filipino workers),” she told the audience at the World Trade Center last November 15.
Select MPA beneficiaries at the Summit, who were repatriated OFWs received livelihood starters such as piglets, egg machines, and bakery kits — all easy-to-manage businesses with a quick return on investment.
As participant in the Summit, Pilmico also presented various livelihood opportunities covering its Feeds, Flour, and Farms businesses and provided valuable advice to attendees on proper animal husbandry and nutrition.
