Mindanao quake victims receive premium riceNovember 24, 2019
TACLOBAN CITY — A Leyte-based company that specializes in producing premium rice sold in big grocery stores in Metro Manila donated 40 tons of ultra-premium rice to earthquake victims in Mindanao.
Chen Yi Agventures (CYA), producer of Renucci Rice that sold under the brand of “Dalisay,” sent the trucks of rice through Mindanao Development Authority Secretary Emmanuel Piñol.
Rachel Renucci-Tan, co-owner of CYA, said the 40 tons of donated rice would be able to feed 12,500 earthquake survivors for 10 days, or equivalent to 375,000 rice meals. The donation amounts to P2.2 million based on its production cost.
“Chen Yi Agventures’ mission is to care, to give and to love always in order to be sustainable. We go where the worst of calamities destroy in order to rebuild,” Renucci-Tan said.
CYA established a P1.4-billion state-of-the-art rice processing complex in Leyte after Eastern Visayas was hit by supertyphoon “Yolanda” in November 2013 to help rice farmers in the region recover from the devastation.
The company also buys their palay at a price higher than what is offered by rice traders and introduce technologies that will increase production.
“Dalisay” rice won third prize in the World Best Rice competition in the recently concluded World Rice Conference in Manila, besting over 30 top rice varieties all over the world.
