As healthcare frontliners across the country continue to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, Chooks-to-Go’s own frontliners match it with food support.
Recently the rotisserie chicken chain gave warm meals to frontliners at the National Kidney and Transplant Institute in Quezon City to honor and thank them for their dedication to duty.
Dr. Alvin Francisco, a radiologist and vlogger, expressed thanks for Chooks-to-Go’s generous support.
“Kahit paano naiibsan o nababawasan yung pagod na nararamdaman namin, saka mas nai-inspire kami to work harder,” said Dr. Francisco. “Personally I’m grateful na nasusuklian ang mga pagod namin.”
The food distribution was also part of the 23 “thanksgiving activities” in celebration of the 23rd anniversary of Bounty Agro Ventures, Inc. (BAVI), Chooks-to-Go’s parent company.
In the past six months, the company had also handed out chicken that could equal more than 400,000 meals.
Zero Antibiotics Chicken
Learning about BAVI’s Zero Antibiotics Chicken, Dr. Francisco also praised the company for its antibiotic stewardship, the drastic reduction of antibiotic use.
“Natuwa din ako na ang Chooks-to-Go leans towards no antibiotics, kasi antimicrobial resistance is actually rampant in the Philippines,” he said, “and ‘pag nagkaroon kasi tayo ng antibiotic resistance, hindi na gumagana yung antibiotics [that are supposed to treat] diseases.”
Aside from being the largest roasted chicken company in the country, BAVI is also the pioneer of Zero Antibiotics Chicken production in the Philippines.
BAVI commits itself to promoting a healthier Philippines by producing truly healthy chicken.
