PCPPI delivers on environment stewardship commitments

 


Pepsi-Cola Products Philippines, Inc. (PCPPI)—the exclusive manufacturer of PepsiCo beverages in the country—reaffirms its focus on sustainable business practices as it announced its recent wins on environmental protection and stewardship.

Recognizing the role of private sectors in minimizing plastic wastes that end up in the environment, PCPPI continues to practice light weighting to reduce their virgin plastic content in plastic packaging. The company said it had already reduced about 118 metric tons of plastic resin as of September 2021. This equates to almost six million single-serve Pepsi polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles. PCPPI has also saved 36,000 kilograms of carton as secondary packaging through the light weighting initiative.

“PCPPI has fervently elevated our business practices to benefit the environment and the people. It’s still a long journey towards achieving plastic neutrality, but we are happy to see that we are making remarkable progress and positive impact on the environment,” said PCPPI president and chief executive officer Frederick D. Ong.

In 2020, PCPPI was able to save 76 metric tons or about 3.8 million single-serve PET bottles.

Clean-up Drives


PCPPI is also bolstering its water stewardship initiatives through its participation in various localized coastal clean-up activities. The company’s regional offices in Batangas, La Union, Cagayan De Oro, and Davao partnered with local government units and Environment and Natural Resources offices to collect wastes along coastal areas and bodies of water.
 
The company also supported the community clean-up drives and waste management activities by providing segregation bins in Sto. Tomas, Batangas and Rosario, La Union.
 
For their part, PCPPI Cagayan De Oro volunteered to participate in the Limpyo Dagat Program of Cagayan De Oro City to clean the stretch of Cagayan de Oro coast. Since 2019, PCPPI is the only private organization participating in the said program.
 
As part of its water stewardship program, PCPPI has adopted six water-bodies to create and implement sustained and long-term protection projects, together with partner local government units.
 
 “The company respects water as its main resource and as everyone’s fundamental right. Through these activities, we are allowing our business to thrive sustainably, while benefitting the lives of the communities around us,” said Ong.
 
PCPPI is the exclusive manufacturer of well-known beverage brands in the Philippines: Pepsi-Cola, Mountain Dew, 7-Up, Mirinda, Mug, Gatorade, Tropicana, Lipton, Sting, Premier, Milkis, and Aquafina.

Sterling Bank of Asia (SBA) has selected San Juan City's Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) as one of this year's beneficiaries of their annual Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program, the Kind Heart Gives Campaign.

Persons Deprived of Liberty (PDL) of San Juan City's BJMP showcased their craftsmanship in their parol making project, which also serves as an opportunity for them to support themselves and their families financially. The "parol," which is one of the most iconic symbols of Filipino Christmas, is a staple decoration in most houses.

"The parol is a great expression of the Filipinos’ faith and hope," said Cecilio San Pedro, SBA's President and CEO. 

"We'd like to take this opportunity to extend our support to the PDL's of San Juan City as we move towards a brighter Christmas celebration in these challenging times," San Pedro added.

During the announcement of the activity, Sterling Bank of Asia employees also ordered their own parols to bring home and hang in their homes.

It is inspiring to see how our fellow employees happily bought their own parols as a way of helping these persons deprived of liberty,” said Dulce Edillor, SBA’s Human Resources Group Head. 

"From a company-led initiative, our fellow employees voluntarily involved themselves in the project,” exclaimed Edillor.

JUNGSU collaborated with MAIJAY for the double single REAL LIFE, Already Rich

 


JUNGSU collaborated with MAIJAY for REAL LIFE and Already Rich. The said songs were released last October 22 through several music streaming services.

[REAL LIFE] is his first collaboration release soon after the release of “Breakdown” last August.

Holding a classic "old school boom bap" and "hype modern trap" sound, these tracks differ in terms of sound from JUNGSU’s previous releases of a mellow, melodic mood; the message is still the same, though.

The songs flowed out naturally as they shared their thoughts on what fulfilling, meaningful life would look like. Having money or fame, or thrilling experiences are all good, but they seem to wonder what actually lasts...eternally.


The artists share their faith in Jesus and boldly proclaim that you will learn about the meaning of REAL LIFE when realizing that we are “Already Rich” even without materialistic possessions that people work hard for.

The everlasting, unlimited wealth found in our relationship with God is possible through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. 

“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field." - Matthew 13:44

Stream REAL LIFE and Already Rich on Spotify, Apple Music, SoundCloud, Melon, Bugs, Naver Vibe, FLO and genie.

PH’s 1st Stevia grower-manufacturer launches No Sugar iced tea mixes

 


GIDC, The Stevia Company, and maker of Glorious products, is bringing no sugar iced tea mixes in major supermarkets and groceries! Consumers who cuts on sugar in their diet can now enjoy low calorie, no sugar iced tea mixes that are sweetened by natural alternatives. 

 

Glorious Blend Lemon Iced Tea, Red Tea and Cucumber Lemonade that are sweetened iced tea mixes without sugar are especially produced for people who are cutting and avoiding food and drinks with too much sugar.

 

Glorious Blend iced tea mixes are naturally sweetened with stevia. The mixes are made from premium ingredients that include mixed berries, real black tea leaves, lemon, and real cucumber. It is low in calorie and loaded with vitamin C.

 

“Stevia has been regarded as a safe and healthy sugar substitute. It can sweeten foods, and it has several health benefits, including decreased calorie intake, lower blood sugar levels, and less risk of cavities,” said Maura De Leon, the woman behind GIDC, the country’s first FDA registered stevia grower and manufacturer. 

 

Before, stevia was restricted to the health food market without any FDA approval. However, it is now widely used as a natural substitute for artificial sweeteners in many products. 

 

While it has zero calories, stevia is 200 times sweeter than refined sugar and does not affect blood sugar. It is a popular option for people looking to lose weight but who want to reduce their sugar intake. 

 

Stevia is an herb that has been grown in tropical climates for centuries. It is a small bushy plant that belongs to the sunflower family and grows in Paraguay and Brazil, but it can be quickly grown elsewhere. For centuries, the people of Paraguay add them to their foods as sweeteners, and countries like Korea, Brazil, China, Japan, and South America, have long used stevia.

 

Stevia is now being widely used as a natural sweetener in various food preparations.

 

People who have diabetes can benefit from stevia. Choosing pure stevia extract can help maintain normal blood sugar levels and should be used in moderation. Stevia can also help cut down added sugar consumption, which can be beneficial for children. High sugar intake in children could lead to heart disease due to reconstructing triglyceride and cholesterol levels, contributing to children's weight gain. Substituting added sugar for stevia can minimize these risks. At the same time, moderate consumption of foods with stevia and other sweeteners can prevent adverse side effects and promote overall health.

 

Stevia products such as iced tea mixes, healthy coffees and chocolate beverages manufactured by Glorious, are approved safe by the Food and Drug Association (FDA) for pregnant women or people who have diabetes. 

 

Incidentally, all Glorious Blend beverages -- from the 3in1 coffee, 4in1 Malunggay mix, 5in1 Brown Rice Coffee, 7-in-1 Mangosteen-Malunggay Coffee, 7in1Native Cacao Choco and Maxitrim with L-Carnitine, use Stevia which has no calories, no carbohydrates, and zero glycemic index. All of their instant drinks will keep you alert and energized throughout the day.

QURE is here: A teleconsultation and wellness website made by Filipinos for Filipinos

 


A teleconsult website that promises to make medical consultations easy and convenient for many Filipinos was finally launched today, October 20. 

QURE.ph, an all-Filipino-made website, provides a platform for online video consultations, connects doctors and patients for easy scheduling of appointments, and makes available a directory of pharmacies and other health and wellness providers. 

QURE.ph offers a free platform for doctors who want to expand their services via teleconsult amid increasing demand for virtual consultation.

“We created this platform with the Filipino patient in mind. It’s a simple website and it does not complicate the teleconsultation process. Even those not comfortable with technology will find these consultations easy to do. This is our new normal and QURE is here to help you navigate the future of healthcare,” said Gary Libby, QURE Chief Technology Officer.

A trip to the hospital may also be burdensome these days, as the COVID pandemic persists. QURE will help Filipinos find their way through this public health crisis while keeping their health in check. 

“This will definitely benefit doctors and patients. No more overbooking for doctors, and no more long lines for patients waiting for their turn at clinics. Whether via teleconsult or face-to-face check-ups, the scheduling system of QURE helps both patients and doctors,” Libby added. 

Andrea Trinidad, Chief Executive Officer of QURE, said the idea of the teleconsult platform started last year when the lockdowns extended and it became difficult for patients to see their doctors.

Trinidad, who has a life-long disorder called hemophilia and is the president Hemophilia Advocates-Philippines, said the pandemic really affected patients. 

“When I was approached by my friends last year and they shared with me their idea of a telemedicine platform, I told them it was brilliant.  We envision QURE to be an e-mall of health services where you can book consults, buy medicines, book laboratory appointments and even book a consult with the veterinarian for your fur babies,” she added.


More to know about QURE:


1. The platform is data-safe, both for patients and doctors. Registering is FREE for patients and doctors.


Consultation fees range from P500 to P1,500, depending on doctor’s specialization. But for its introductory price, QURE is offering a 50 percent discount for consultations


2. Registered users can look for doctors for their tele-consult. Specialists have expertise on: 


Cardiology; General Surgery; Obstetrics and Gynecology; Integrative General Medicine; Internal Medicine, Dermatology; Otolaryngology (ENT); ENT Specialist Head & Neck Surgery; Psychiatry-Adult; Physical Medicine/Rehab; Pediatrics; Allergy & Asthma, Immunologist; Urology; Sleep Medicine/Insomnia; Ophthalmology; Family & Occupational Medicine; Cardiology; Pediatrics-Pulmonology; Family Medicine; Lifestyle Medicine, Orthopedic Surgery and Hematology/Oncology


 Also in QURE’s pool of experts: Nutritionist Dietician; General Dentistry/Orthodontics; Dentistry/Prosthetic and Esthetic;

4. Find doctors in your area or teleconsult with a specialist anywhere in the Philippines

QURE has a growing number of specialists from all over the country. The drop-down menu on the website shows that many doctors have already signed up. Many more are joining QURE in the following weeks.

The pandemic clearly showed us that not all heroes wear capes. We have our economic frontliners who make our lives easier and safer. They are the delivery riders, construction workers, and market vendors, among others.
 
As the most festive season of the year nears, essential workers prepare for busier days ahead. They expect larger volumes of delivery, more traffic in grocery stores, and higher demand for their services. To get them going through their day, they need a little boost from energy drinks.
 
Sting is one of the energy drinks known and well-loved among Filipino essential workers.
It is a product of Pepsi-Cola Products Philippines Inc. (PCPPI), the exclusive manufacturer of PepsiCo beverages in the country.
 
Sting helps build stamina needed to last a long and tough day. It sharpens the mind and body to endure taxing situations.
“As we enter the last quarter of the year, we hope to power up our economic frontliners through Sting. Their commitment to their jobs, despite the threat of the pandemic, is commendable. PCPPI, for its part, continues to produce beverages that are not only refreshing, but energizing as well,” said PCPPI president and chief executive officer Frederick D. Ong.
 
Sting is a refreshing energy drink that gives one a positive kick. It comes in strawberry flavor in 300ml and 330ml bottles. It is available in supermarkets, groceries, convenience stores, and sari-sari stores nationwide.

With its two trailblazing news formats – reels and bullets – everyone can get to know more updates, in no time at all.

This is the future of news. Welcome to Newsreels.

The app goes further by giving content creators the option to collab with the app, letting them use it as a publishing platform to reach more audiences. For an app born out of the innovation surge during the 2020 pandemic, Newsreels is the much needed power-up of both emerging and established news outlets.

"It is our answer to the growing need of the public to have a one-stop news portal to get all the relevant information they need, be it for COVID-related topics or absolutely anything they want, without having to jump between apps and news sources," says RJ David, the team’s Product Innovation Officer.

Gone are the glory days of the plain vanilla newsreader apps. The readers today are smart: we want more; we want better, quicker. And we want it how we like it. Newsreels has quashed the "same-old, same-old" monotony of current affairs through its contemporary, made-to-order, openly inclusive news aggregation platform. The era of engaging, on-point, choice news is in.

Yamang Bukid Healthy Products Inc (YBHPI) is the company behind the country's No. 1 turmeric tea brand, the Yamang Bukid Turmeric 10-in-1.


Yamang Bukid Insulin Plant Tea is made from the leaves of authentic insulin plants (Costus igneus) grown in pristine farming conditions in Palawan. The all-natural wellness drink has no other ingredients aside from dried insulin leaves, so consumers are assured that it’s safe and is of nature’s best. 


Yamang Bukid Insulin Plant Tea is the first of its kind to be given a Certificate of Product Registration (CPR) by the Philippines Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The product has undergone revaluation and certification from FDA and passed various tests so the quality and safety of the product is guaranteed. 


Aside from lowering glucose levels, insulin plant (Costus igneus) is also naturally rich in phytochemicals that function as antioxidant, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory. Insulin plant  has long been consumed in various countries such as in India, due to its anti-diabetic properties as it is also found beneficial to people with obesity, and other metabolic disorders.


After much deliberation, the top executives of brand unanimously agreed that Martin is the best personality to represent the product to the Philippine market as she is widely known and respected in the industry not only for her impressive body of work as one of the most  respected and versatile film and television actresses but also her dynamic, healthy lifestyle. 


For almost five decades, Carmi has been one of the enduring actresses in the landscape of Philippine entertainment as she is widely recognized as the First Lady Of Philippine Comedy after starring in the most iconic and legendary television series like Chicks-To-Chicks and Abangan Ang Susunod Na Kabanata as well as her recent online hit series GVBoys. 

   
“I have been a long-time user of the Yamang Bukid’s Turmeric 10-in-1 Tea and I am happy that the company has another healthy product that I could use in Insulin Plant Tea. I am very grateful for the trust of Yamang Bukid and I am honored to be the official brand ambassador of Insulin Plant Tea,” says Martin. 


Yamang Bukid Insulin Plant Tea is a great development for many Filipinos, as diabetes and other health problems caused by high blood sugar continue to be among the top causes of death in the country as health experts have raised concerns over this health problem, calling diabetes a silent epidemic. In 2020 for instance, diabetes-linked complications killed 37,265 Filipinos, up from 32,991 in annual average between 2015-2019, data from Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) showed.


Today, millions have a chance at improving their health with Yamang Bukid Insulin Plant Tea. Consumers may consult their doctor prior to taking any health and wellness supplements.
