Feed A Farmer
SL Agritech Corporation (SLAC), makers of Doña Maria Premium Quality Rice, has long been uplifting the lives of farmers through its hybrid rice technology and contract-growing program. In spite of this, however, there are still thousands of other farmers beyond the company’s reach especially in the provinces of Visayas and Mindanao who are still earning below minimum wage. On top of this, the recent El Niño phenomenon further left them starving. The company saw the need to address the problem thus leading us to organize the Balik Biyaya Project: Bigas Mo, Tulong Mo which will run from August 16 – September 30, 2016 (extended up to October 31, 2016 as approved by DTI FTEB-SPD) in coordination with Alagang Kapatid Foundation and Philippine Red Cross. Buy 2 kg or 5 kg or 10 kg of any Doña Maria Premium Quality Rice or Willy Farms Rice in supermarkets and we will donate an equivalent of 20% of rice based on product purchase to help feed our farmers.
Our Filipino farmers are working hard every day to sustain us yet we have taken them for granted. Now, it is our time to give back to them through Balik Biyaya Project: Bigas Mo, Tulong Mo. Together with the Filipino farmer community, let us help fight hunger and poverty. Let us all help feed our farmer!
Our Filipino farmers have long been in partnership with Doña Maria Premium Quality Rice on the mission to provide the best-tasting rice for the consumers. In our contract-growing program, these farmers entered into a commitment to be our partners. Then, we provide the hybrid rice seeds via credit as part of their investment. These farmers, in turn, plant and harvest the crops in which Doña Maria will buy 100% of the yield. Making our farmers entrepreneurs!
