Farm Fresh Milk Products

Late post: I’ve been looking for kesong puti and locally-produced mozzarella for a while now until I discovered UPLB’s Fresh Milk Distributor – Commonwealth QC on Facebook.

They’ve been selling a lot of milk products such as whole milk, choco milk, coffee milk, low-fat plain yogurt, flavored yogurt (peach mango, strawberry, blueberry), and pastillas candy.

I ordered one each of kesong puti, mozzarella, peach mango yogurt, and pastillas candy. I bought them in February and have yet to make a second order soon.

The seller is so accommodating and thoroughly explains how to store the milk products properly. Since the milk and other dairy products are fresh, have no preservatives, and with shorter shelflife. Proper storage is a must to maximize its shelf life.

I’m glad I discovered these locally-sourced products. The products taste so much better than I expected. Kudos to the sellers and distributors for helping our local farmers and the industry thrive.

Pizza or chicken wings cravings are no longer a problem for us. Big Tummies got our cravings covered. Their outlet is just a few blocks away from our house. Kaya naman ang dali na lang umorder ng pizza at chicken wings. Nakakatuwa that their outlet in our area is thriving. Masarap naman kasi ang products nila at hindi papahuli sa ibang popular pizza outlets.

How to help mango farmers in Luzon

A Filipino chef and food advocate recently urged the public to help mango farmers from Luzon.

Through his Facebook post, Chef Jam Melchor, who is also the founder of the Philippine Culinary Heritage Movement, has made the following appeal.

“Food industry friends, we need to help our mango farmers! Sweet, velvety, soft and scandalously succulent – we have the best mangoes in the world!

This season, they are producing about 100 tons per week. One truck can contain 4 tons. They can give it at P25/K if 4 tons ang order. Export grade is at P50/k. You may call DA Main office (AMAS) at (02) 925 3795 so they can link you directly to these mango producers.

Remember that picture of tons and tons of locally grown tomatoes dumped by farmers in Laguna in a waste dumpsite last year was very troubling. For one, the farmers toiled to grow those tomatoes and they got nothing for their effort.

Those tomato farmers figured they have nothing more to lose and decided to keep their pride by dumping their produce instead. That deprived the traders of the opportunity to make their unholy profits at their expense.

Let us not wait for the time when our farmers will give up on us. It is time to rethink how each of us can help them, even in small ways.” #PhilippineMango#SupportourFarmers #LoveLocal #ItsmorefuninthePhilippines#PreserveFilipinoFood
