#PanlasangNorte with Pilmico!

9:44:00 PM

There's always these popular must-try dishes in every region. From the hearty chicken stew that is pinikpikan in the Cordillera to the crunchy, deep-fried pig skin of bagnet in Ilocos. The northern part of the Philippines, like any other region boasts of a rich culture and food history. Do you ever try to live like native when traveling? That's the most exciting aspect of travel - we encounter cultural differences, traditions, history, locals and learn that we're not conflict in any way. With more than 7,100 islands, can you imagine how many savory and exotic dishes the Philippines can offer?

Since 2014, the advocacy themed Mahalin Pagkaing Atin travels the country through Food and Livelihood Expos to raise awareness on embracing local food. Pilmico, the food subsidiary of Aboitiz and the company behind the program, visits destruction, poverty and conflict stricken areas and helps people build a new life to attain sustainability. Seminars on animal husbandry, cooking, baking and nutrition are normally conducted during the scheduled expos.

Mahalin Pagkaing Atin has been to Tagum City, Davao, Bohol, North Cebu, IloIlo., Ormoc, Palo, Carigara, Baybay, Tacloban, Roxas City, Samar, Butuan, Tarlac, Nueva Ecija and Isabela. This initiative will hit the road again to let more kababayans experience same after a quick pit stop at Mercato Centrale in Bonifacio Global City last night, 31 July for a session with Metro Manila's savviest foodies. TV personality like Chef Boy Logro, Station 94.7 Mellow Touch DJs and co-founder RJ Ledesma.

To give you an idea how much this program has achieved to date: Pilmico has donated a total of 191 egg machines, 646 piglets and 14 agriposts to about 304 families nationwide. 

This advocacy distributes piglets and egg machines to selected beneficiaries with full cycle feed consumption. 

Let us join the road trip up north and around the country to help the local food industry by encouraging and promoting backyard farming.
