Pilmico Livelihood Expo 2014

Today and tomorrow.
Here is a press release (edited) about the event from Pilmico:

ABOITIZ Equity Ventures’ food group Pilmico holds its “Livelihood Expo 2014: Celebrating the Baker, the Farmer and the Breeder” on May 24-25 at the Misamis Oriental Provincial Capitol grounds.

The biggest feeds and flour expo in the country, held in cooperation with the Misamis Oriental Provincial Capitol, Provincial Veterinary Office, Provincial Tourism Office, and the Provincial Employment Services Office, features Pilmico flour for the first time.

Participants from Northern Mindanao provinces will attend free seminars and demos on the latest practices and technology in hograising and gamefowl breeding as well as bakery operations.

The Pilmico Poultry and Livestock Expo is aimed at educating participants on proper backyard livestock raising using Pilmico’s four-pillar Diamond Program: breeding and genetics, sound management, complete healthcare, and excellent nutrition.

“Pilmico advocates backyard raising as a way to bring families together,” said Pilmico vice president for sales Hendel Cabral. “It’s an activity that even children can be involved in, have fun, while subsequently immersing themselves in the family business.”

The Aboitiz Group, through Pilmico, has been providing its customers with world-class flour and feeds for over 50 years.

High-quality Pilmico Feeds include the brands Ultimax, Elite, Classic, Civic and Lakas Tandem for hogs; Poultry Express, Avemax, and Gallimax for poultry; and Salto for gamefowl.

For Pilmico’s hard flour ideal for breads, noodles and pizza, the brands are Sun Moon Star, Sunshine, Glowing Sun and Kutitap; and for Pilmico’s soft flour used for pastries, cookies, cakes, wafers and pancakes, the brands are Gold Star and Mega Star. Rounding up the Pilmico flour portfolio is the Wooden Specialty Flour range that is ideal for siopao and cakes.

The partner exhibitors and facilitators that complement Pilmico in this expo are Bayer, Novartis, Boehringer Ingelheim, Merial Philippines, Pfizer, Elanco, PIC and Virbac for the hogs segment; Excellence Poultry and Livestock Specialists, Vista del Rio Farm, and media partners Pit Games Media and Tukaan Sultada for the gamefowl category; and Besterm, Ferna, Bakels and Sinmag for the flour part.

Other notable activities at the expo are the Live Animal Display, Technical Baking Sessions, and Games in which 20 piglets and a terminal boar will be raffled off to lucky seminar attendees.

A special feature is the 3PM Pilmico Habit during which breads made from Pilmico flour will be distributed to participants in the exhibit grounds as the clock strikes 3 in the afternoon.

Pepsi Overdrive promo winners

THE final four lucky winners in the “Pepsi Overdrive” nationwide promo have been awarded with their brand new Mitsubishi Mirage cars at the Cagayan de Oro plant of Pepsi-Cola Products Philippines Inc.

Carlos Z. Bongaos of Butuan City, Leopardo B. Delis of Misamis Oriental, Ariel A. Balon of Cagayan de Oro and Mariamel T. Pacana of Cagayan de Oro received their respective car keys from Pepsi executives and a representative from Diamond Motors.

Bongaos was Day 46 winner in the 100-cars, 100-days promotion which ran from September 16 to December 24 last year. He won from a Sting crown, one of the valid products along with Pepsi Regular, Pepsi Max, Pepsi Light, Mirinda, 7-Up, Mug and Mountain Dew.

Delis, a utility driver for a bank, joined the promo while snacking with a Pepsi drink one day. He said he did not expect to win but was overjoyed when he received a call informing him of the happy result from the electronic raffle. He was Day 78 winner.

Balon said he has been a Pepsi drinker since childhood years in Davao del Norte, eagerly searching for a “Free Pepsi” crown that was a common promotional offer in the 1970s. When his wife Precy won in this Overdrive promo he joined also, texting his entries from two cases of Pepsi 8oz drinks that he had bought for a Christmas party on December 17. On Day 93 he won.

Pacana, who runs a catering business, considered herself very lucky by winning from just three entries she submitted on December 21, although she had been texting entries since the first week of that month. She was Day 97 winner.

During the awarding ceremony, Pepsi CDO Plant general manager Joemar Alova extended his congratulations to the winners as Pepsi CDO finance manager Christine Jamorin, Pepsi CDO trade marketing manager Sanny Calam and Pepsi CDO Region 1 sales manager Manolo Mariano Jr. handed over the symbolic keys.

The actual car keys were given to each of the winners by Tina Reyes of Diamond Motors as she showed them the safety features of the high-end Mirage. Earlier she explained the warranty and introduced the service centers where drivers can go for periodic maintenance of the car.

Last January 23 the management of Pepsi Cagayan de Oro Plant awarded Mirage cars to three winners: Precy S. Balon of Cagayan de Oro, Eric S. Somera of Cagayan de Oro, and Jennelyn P. Belardo of General Santos City. Thirteen other Mindanao winners were awarded in Davao City and five in Zamboanga City.

In addition to the 100 Mitsubishi cars, the “Overdrive” promo also gave away 30,000 bottles of two-liter Pepsi Cola and 100,000 free mobile phone load to the participants.
