Dear Contract Growing Partners:
The past four months had been tough on all of us.
For the better part of it, our enterprise teetered dangerously on the brink of ruin.
If not for the swiftness and sheer daringness of our responses, much of which attributable to you, we could have met our sudden end, instead of the sterling success that we are seeing today.
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought our economy into a tailspin. It has already claimed thousands of lives and millions of livelihoods.
Where others have not been as lucky, your hard work and perseverance with the aid of Divine Providence created our own luck.
You were unstinting in your diligence and determination in keeping to our goals at the height of the lock down, where work was most difficult and the risks to health most severe.
The challenges seemed insurmountable at times and you lost much sleep worrying about your people and your business. Although badly bruised, you bravely soldiered on—unbroken.
We learned how to live with the virus that we cannot defeat and emerged even stronger than we were at this time last year.
On behalf of the company and from the bottom of my heart, thank you.
Rest assured that we are equally determined to continue to enrich our partnership, to extend to you the systems and services that has been forged, tried and tested in this crisis and proved well-suited to the new economy that is coming out of it.
Our focus on “Antibiotic Stewardship” and growing “No Antibiotics Ever” chicken are now the lodestars that will guide our business to greater success.
We shall put our trust once more in your openness to new ideas and the spirit of creativity and innovation that have always been the hallmark of our business as we continue to blaze new trails in the local poultry industry.
We expect that by taking part in this program, we shall all be able to create positive new impacts on our business and most especially, our customers—the Filipino people.
The crisis is not yet over, but I am confident that whatever new challenges may come our way, we will always be able to create our luck.
Thank you, once again, and congratulations to all our awardees.
Mabuhay po kayo!
