FARM TO FORK PROGRAM
Sourcing from local farmers, we make nutritious food products to feed the hungry.
FOOD MANUFACTURING PLANT
NVC operates a facility in Bacolod City to manufacture Mingo and other nutrition packs for our partner, Rise Against Hunger Foundation. We use equipment provided by the Philippine Department of Science and Technology and other donors. Our manufacturing plant is licensed by the Philippine Food and Drug Administration.
WORKING WITH SMALL FARMERS
NVC sources produce from local small farmers and converts these into Mingo Meals and other food packs. Since there is no middleman, NVC pays higher than market price. Farmers earn more, and are assured of a buyer for their harvest. We also regularly visit and monitor our suppliers’ growing areas.
Here are some examples of crops that NVC buys from its contracted growers.
- Alogbati (Malabar spinach)
- Saluyot/tugabang (jute leaves)
- Kalabasa (squash)
- Green mongo (mung beans)
- Malunggay (moringa)
- Kamote (sweet potato) tops
- Orange kamote (sweet potato)
- Saging saba (cardaba banana)
- Green Indian mango
- Batwan fruit (Garcinia binucao)
