Sardines maker Mega Global Corp. invests in a P1 billion factory in Batangas to satisfy an increase in demand for canned goods.
The business set a February 2022 goal for complete Santo Tomas operations, Batangas plant, which will generate 1,000 jobs, Mega Global said Friday in a press release.
In its Zamboanga-based activities, the company’s manufacturing potential is projected to expand by up to 50 percent from the existing 300 metric tons per year. Sardines line will be finished by August 2021.
The plant would include a fish meal factory, cold storage, and warehouse.
Mega Global also seeks to obtain the facility’s foreign certifications for sale to Europe and the Middle East.
“We are very grateful to be able to invest more in our 2020 expansion and diversification plans and ultimately drive economic growth over the coming years,” said William Tiu-Lim, President and CEO of Mega Global.
“This plant will also enable us to support small businesses as we plan to supply our raw materials and manpower from Luzon suppliers as part of DTI’s Local, Go Local initiative.”
Mega Global has revealed its corporate social responsibility initiative to deliver meals by year-end to 100,000 needy Filipino households. Donations may be made via Tiu Lim Foundation or online sites. – P. Jenina Ibañez
