Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro - - Billboard/Community -

The De­part­ment of Trade and In­dus­try (DTI) through the Philip­pine Trade and In­vest­ment Cen­tre (PTIC) in Sydney fea­tured two award-win­ning prod­ucts from the Philip­pines at the In­de­pen­dence Day cel­e­bra­tions in Aus­tralia on 10 June 2019.

Guests were able to sam­ple Mala­gos Choco­lates, the award win­ning Philip­pine choco­lates from Davao. The renowned choco­lates were made from tree-to-bar -- a process by which the sow­ing, tend­ing, har­vest­ing, fer­ment­ing, dry­ing, sort­ing, roast­ing, and pro­duc­ing the cho­co­late is done right on the com­pany’s farm -- giv­ing the prod­ucts a more dis­tinc­tive and pro­nounced taste.

Due to the dis­tinc­tive qual­ity of its prod­uct, Mala­gos Choco­lates has gar­nered pres­ti­gious in­ter­na­tional awards putting the Philip­pines, specif­i­cally Davao, in the cho­co­late map of the world.

Mean­while, Manille Liqueur de Cala­mansi and Paradise Mango Rum were also served dur­ing the cel­e­bra­tions in Sydney and Perth.

Manille Liqueur de Cala­mansi is a vodka-based drink that uses the essence of the zesty Cala­mansi or Philip­pine lime rind sourced from the Mangyan farm­ers in Min­doro province in the Philip­pines. An­other prod­uct, Paradise Mango Rum, is a nat­u­ral fruit-based liqueur made from world-renowned Philip­pine man­goes and pre­mium aged rum. The prod­uct has gar­nered nu­mer­ous awards over­seas and is a tes­ta­ment to the ca­pa­bil­ity of the Philip­pines to pro­duce global brands rec­og­nized and ap­pre­ci­ated by in­ter­na­tional con­nois­seurs.

“We want Aus­tralians to know we have good, qual­ity prod­ucts in the Philip­pines that are rec­og­nized and ap­pre­ci­ated in­ter­na­tion­ally. Our goal is to make these prod­ucts avail­able in su­per­mar­ket shelves, bou­tique stores, duty free shops, ho­tels, bars and spe­cialty stores in Aus­tralia soon,” said Philip­pines Spe­cial Trade Rep­re­sen­ta­tive to Aus­tralia Alma Ar­gayoso.

“Not only are the prod­ucts good, but by sup­port­ing and pa­tron­iz­ing these brands, Aus­tralians will also be able to sup­port lo­cal farm­ers in the Philip­pines who ad­here to eth­i­cal and sus­tain­able farm­ing and strict qual­ity stan­dards,” she added.
