The company said, “the safety and well-being of our employees, customers and our community is our top priority’ adding they are “implementing strict precautionary measures, safety and health protocols to protect employees from this deadly virus since the start of the community quarantine.”

We wish to clarify the message circulating online stating “Dont eat muna gardenia lahat tao positive… buong planta sa laguna positive lahat ng tao”.
