Jollibee Group Foundation partners for agro-entrepreneurship (AE) to train more farmers
As part of its Farmer Entrepreneurship Program (FEP), JGF recently strengthened its partnership with Cebu-based Lamac Multi-Purpose Cooperative (LMPC) to establish an AE training center in 2019 for facilitators in Visayas and Mindanao. AE Facilitators will teach and coach farmer groups on collective marketing so they can directly supply to institutional buyers such as Jollibee Foods Corp. Signing the Memorandum of Agreement are JGF President Grace Tan Caktiong, and LMPC Chairman Richard Obaner. Joining them (standing from left) are JGF Trustee Marissa Camacho; JGF Vice President Belen Rillo; LMPC Farmer Cluster Leader Ligaya Miras; and LMPC Head of Business Development Justine Lynn Limocon.
