Gov't links Pinoy suppliers to NZ health food company

by Prix D Banzon

Davao City (19 June) -- The government is linking Filipino suppliers to a health food company in New Zealand.

Department of Agriculture (DA) Secretary Arthur Yap in a press statement said the New Zealand Health Association Limited, trading as the Sanitarium Health Food Company (SHFC) has expressed interest in importing food products in the Philippines.

Yap said the New Zealand businessmen had pledged to import fresh mangoes, banana chips and dessicated coconut from the Philippines including sardines, dried anchovies, squid, ready-to-mix sauces, pili nuts and coco and fruit juices.

"We will link SHFC with Filipino suppliers who can meet the market and production requirements of the health food company," he said.

The SHFC's operations which employs 1,700 people include not only the production of cereals, bread spreads, soy milk products, and a variety of chilled and canned vegetable products but also health food shops and vegetarian cafes.

The company has a global reputation as a maker of quality health and plant-based foods and the leading provider of health and nutrition information within the food industry.

Among SHFC's most popular food brand is Weet-Bix, the No. 1 selling breakfast cereal in New Zealand for almost 40 years now.

SHFC, a not-for-profit-business directs its earnings to community support and products for humanitarian aid across the globe. (PIA XI) [top]
