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
