Agriculture Secretary William Dar and CEO of Fresh Options Dr. Robert Lo assure the public that there is enough meat for the holiday season amidst the challenges that disrupted the Philippine livestock industry.

“There is enough supply of meat and meat products for the coming Christmas and New Year,” said Secretary Dar, as the Department of Agriculture (DA) remains vigilant — in partnership with the local government units, livestock farmers’ groups, and meat industry stakeholders — in their concerted sustained fight against African Swine Fever, bird flu, and other animal diseases.

During a courtesy call at the DA Central Office in Quezon City on October 20, Lo presented to the DA chief different meat products produced by Fresh Options sourced from locally-raised hogs, cattle, and poultry.

Fresh Options is part of the RDF Feed, Livestock and Foods Inc. (RDFFLFI), one of the country’s vertically-integrated agri-food systems, based in Pampanga.

“We are not just processing meat, but we are also into manufacturing and commercial livestock raising,” Lo said.

Fresh Options has been and continues to be a strong partner of government in ensuring fresh and quality meat, by providing customers safe and clean meat products. (Photos by Alan Jay Jacalan, DA-AFID)
