It is an honor to have the 5th District of Pangasinan Dairy Farm serve as host for the 15th Dairy Congress and Expo. The 5th District of Pangasinan Dairy Farm has been hard at work towards marketing its products to provide more Filipinos with truly fresh milk products.
The dairy industry in the Philippines has grown so much over the years and it is time the Filipino people are made aware of it. Therein lies the beauty of the 15th Dairy Congress and Expo. It is an opportunity to all the dairy players all over the Philippines to show their products, to let their countrymen know and benefit from the fruits of their labor.
More than that, this Dairy Congress and Expo serves another purpose. That purpose is to show people what it really means when dairy product are labeled as Fresh. The milk we find in groceries, although labeled as “fresh” is not truly fresh milk. Our local dairymen are the only suppliers of true fresh milk in the country and it is through events such Dairy Congress and Expo as well as the DairyCon that Filipinos will get to know the true meaning of Fresh Milk.
Milk is full of nutrients and vitamins that are essential for a child’s growth. With milk, we can lessen the number of malnourished children in our country. The fresh milk that is produced by our local dairies can go a long way in improving the health of our children.
I believe that the 15th Dairy Congress and Expo will be an instrumental in raising awareness of our local dairy industry that continues to grow. It will aid in the promoting of our locally produced milk. It will continue spreading the true definition of Fresh in milk labeling. Together, we can make the local dairy industry greater that it already is.
