The community in Surallah gathered to celebrate the opening of Lutheran World Relief-funded Nutripan BREAD (Business for Rural Economy and Agriculture Development) Project last September 07, 2017 at the Municipal Health Office. The store’s opening marks the next phase of growth for the project which was established as a social enterprise that aims to improve access to healthy, nutritious and less costly snack foods among school children by providing alternatives to junk foods sold around the schools and communities.

The Grand Opening was graced by Mr. Recto Puno, Director for Dole Surallah Cannery Operation; Atty. Melquiades Hernandez III, Dolefil’s Director for Corporate Affairs Division; Mr. Martiniano Magdolot, MFI’s President & CEO; and witnessed by top officials and members of the Municipal Government of Surallah represented by Hon. Antonio Bendita, City Mayor and Dr. Neil Crespo, Municipal Health Officer. The School Principals and Nutrition Coordinators including students from Surallah  Elementary School were also present to show their support.

The Municipal Mayor of Surallah, Hon. Antonio Bendita was gratified by the social mission of the project and by the support of the community. Also, he emphasized that they are always willing to give full support to the project as it provides a good source of nutrition.

Mr. Recto Puno, Director for Dole Surallah Cannery Operation stressed that Nutripan Bakeshoppe exudes the vibe of what the community needs by offering nutritious breads. He was also amazed to see the participation of the community which represents ownership and pride.

Nutripan Bakeshoppe is now operating in other 3 municipalities in South Cotabato (Polomolok, Tupi & Tboli) and in Koronadal City. It continues to embrace new opportunities for possible new partnerships and expansion in other areas.32_Fotor
