YOUNG LADY TAKES CHARGE OF ‘PORKGANIC’
SHE LOOKS SO YOUNG, you would not suspect that she is the president of a very promising company that is espousing the consumption of healthy meat products, specifically pork.
Well, Angelica Costales is actually only 22 years old, but she is well equipped to take charge of popularizing Porkganic, the brand of organic pork produced by Costales Food Philippines. The company was conceptualized only last year in answer to the clamor for more healthy food products.
The Costales Nature Farms, the mother company, is well known for its organic vegetables, and has received several awards for these. Angelica says that people don’t only want organic vegetables and fruits. They also need healthy meat products as their source of protein.
Angelica is just right for the job because she finished BS Agricultural Biotechnology major in food technology at UP Los Baños. This is a branch of science which is geared towards improving the taste and nutritional value of food products. And food biotechnology involves the use of beneficial microorganisms.
Right now, Angelica is also enrolled in a one-year course in culinary studies. She attends classes in a culinary school three times a week. This will enable her to come up with creative preparations
