Pepsi-Cola Products Philippines Inc., the exclusive manufacturer of PepsiCo beverages in the Philippines, donated thousands of hydration drinks to benefit various areas in Luzon, as part of the company’s post-disaster food relief operations for areas severely affected by typhoons Rolly and Ulysses.
PCPPI distributed almost two thousand cases of Pepsi Cola products, or around 40,000 bottles, to respond to the needs of families and communities from Bicol, Metro Manila, Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon, and North Luzon.
“The consecutive typhoons have greatly affected our countrymen in Luzon. This is while the country reels from the effects of COVID-19 pandemic. To help them recover, PCPPI is sending those products to continuously hydrate and refresh them as they slowly aim to get back on their feet. And we hope to let them know that we are thinking of them and that we are here ready to help,” said PCPPI president Frederick Ong.
The company has already distributed to some municipalities in Albay, Isabela, and Cagayan, which were some of the most adversely affected provinces by the recent disasters. PCPPI has also been closely coordinating with the local Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Offices for an efficient distribution system of the products to the target communities.
