Conference marks launch of The Care Package
16 September, Ormoc City, Leyte – Pilmico was one of the guest panelists at the 25th Visayas Area Business Conference (VABC) held recently. Hosted by the Ormoc Chamber of Commerce and Industry and with the theme “Change is Here,” the event brought together over 200 delegates from both the public and private sector in the region. In attendance at the meet were Ormoc City Mayor Richard Gomez, VABC Chair Jude Abenoja and Congresswoman Gwendolyn Garcia from the 3rd district of Cebu, among others.
Flanked by the country’s leading Disaster Relief experts, Pilmico First Vice President and Chief Resource Officer Maribeth Marasigan introduced the company’s latest offering – The Care Package – the most efficient relief mechanism that addresses malnutrition and micro-nutrient deficiency.
The Philippines is the fourth most disaster-prone country in the world. In the last 20 years, over 250 calamities have struck the nation and affected millions of Filipino families. This reality emphasizes the need for better disaster preparedness and relief measures.
The Care Package allows local government units, corporate foundations and NGOs to efficiently prepare and strengthen their response measures by being a ready provision in times of great need. The Care Package’s innovation, the High Energy Biscuits, contains 450 kilocalories and is equivalent to one full meal. Packed with essential vitamins and nutrients, these biscuits provide all the necessary nourishment and energy a person needs without sacrificing taste.
Aside from its nutritional value, each pack is ready to eat, easy to transport and easy to stack – eradicating the problems concerning perishable and heavy packages that are not only hard to send or carry, but require heating or refrigerating.
Health and nutrition are often neglected when emergency strikes, but simply sharing the right gift can make all the difference.
