Gardenia aids Taal volcano eruption victims
Gardenia extended help to the evacuees and affected community members of Brgy. Agoncillo, Laurel, and Balete in Batangas following the recent phreatomagmatic eruption of Taal. More than 1,500 Gardenia bread loaves and snacks were donated in partnership with GMA Kapuso Foundation and Philippine Red Cross – Batangas Chapter.
Gardenia President Jun Umali expressed “being at the forefront of disaster relief operations, we stay true to our core values by putting our consumers on top of our priority, especially now that most of them are in dire need, this is the time to extend our hands and help each other”. During the Taal eruption last year in January, Gardenia also distributed almost 50,000 breads to the affected residents.
Aside from the company’s quick response efforts to disaster relief operations, Gardenia continuously donate bread and snack products to COVID-19 medical frontline workers, local government units, and other essential workers. Gardenia also supported the recent community pantry movements across National Capital Region (NCR) and nearby cities and provinces, making the company live up to their guiding principle of #AlwaysBreadyToServe.
