The winning egg machine design, nicknamed ‘Mulawin’, from Pilmico’s nationwide competition last year is finally in production. Aside from easing the process and bringing down costs of procuring the cages, the design meets its usage requirements: collapsible, easy to transfer, easy to source materials, and facilitates efficient egg-laying production.
Pilmico has selected a foundry in Tarlac to build the cages. The company has put in an initial order of 102 units to be allocated for upcoming Mahalin Pagkaing Atin caravans in Luzon.
Two sets have also been donated to the Villar Foundation while another 10 sets are earmarked for the Naga City local government.
