• Pilmico as an organization is not merely defined by the number of years it has been in operation but rather, defined by our PEOPLE and our common-shared Aboitiz values of Integrity, Teamwork, Innovation, and Responsibility. – CFO Ebbie G. Mabatid

• Leaders in Pilmico are self-driven individuals who are not afraid to make a contribution or leave a mark. They are willing to make mistakes, because it is from these mistakes that they learn to do better. And they are willing to take responsibility for their actions, no matter what the outcome. – VP and COO for Feeds Tristan Aboitiz

• We believe that we can do well by doing good, considering the interests of people, planet, and profit. At the end of the day, we want to be known as a company not just driven by our values but by our purpose. – Marketing Manager for Feeds JP Pangilinan on Pilmico’s Mahalin Pagkaing Atin movement to save backyard farming.
