The investment, which underscores C-Joy's commitment to deliver convenient, safe and affordable chicken products to the JFC brands in the Philippines was celebrated in the presence of the Batangas 3rd District Congresswoman Ma. Theresa Collantes, Sto. Tomas Mayor Edna Sanchez, and the United States Ambassador to the Philippines Sung Kim.

Paul Fullbright, President and CEO of C-Joy said: "We are bringing protein to families' tables across the Philippines. Cargill and Jollibee came together to start this plant because of our common commitment to the highest standards in product quality and food safety. This is reflected in this new plant which harnesses technology and global experience to deliver tasty chicken products in an environment which is safe for our employees and is environmentally sustainable."

C-Joy is partnering with local poultry farmers in Batangas and nearby provinces to supply chickens to the new facility. The farming community expressed their excitement at the income opportunities and highlighted their eagerness to be providing chicken to JFC brands in the country.
