Jardine Distribution Inc. BiyahEdukasyon goes to Panay with Mango Growers

True to its commitment to partnering Filipino farmers, Jardine Distribution, Inc. (JDI) recently organized another “BiyahEdukasyon” bringing Mango growers to Iloilo City, Guimaras and Boracay, in the bustling island of Panay.  
BiyahEdukasyon,” literally translated as educational trip, is an institutionalized program of JDI that is exclusively offered to its partner farmers who have been loyal customers for years.  

 Participants of this year’s “BiyahEdukasyon” attend an Integrated Pest Management Seminar organized by JDI and its different sponsors.

Byahedukasyon has been our way of pursuing continued education for our partners outside of their farms.  Aside from providing farmers solutions through the products that we offer, we believe that by providing them opportunities to learn more about their crop and exposing them to other income-generating ideas, we are able to help them in their business.  This in tern ensures that the partnerships we have with them are sustained,” says Kaye Aguilan, JDI product manager.

A total of 90  participants from the provinces of Pangasinan, Batangas, Davao, North Cotabato, Saranggani, and Cagayan De Oro took part in the trip.
