Tony Tan Caktiong hooks up farmers with Jollibee
Jollibee Foods Corporation (JFC) and Jollibee Group Foundation (JGF) chairman Tony Tan Caktiong wants farmers to dream big.
His company?s Farmer Entrepreneurship Program (FEP) aims to increase the income of smallholder farmers by linking them to the supply chain of JFC. Recently, 22 farmers were honoured after their completion of a six-month leadership training under the program. This taught them agro-entrepreneurship and helped them become farmer-suppliers for JFC.
?I hope that someday soon when we honor you, it will be as one of the best suppliers of JFC,? Caktiong told the farmers.
