CDO clarifies: Water treatment hub, not food factory emitting foul odor in Batangas
CDO Foodsphere Inc. clarified that the closure order issued by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources only covered two portions of its plant in Malvar, Batangas.
The unpleasant smell allegedly came from the waste water treatment and rendering facilities.
“In compliance with the DENR directive, we have temporarily suspended the operations of these two facilities while we are fast-tracking the improvements. The rest of the plant remains to operate normally and ready to serve our customers,” CDO said in a statement.
