A new poultry processing plant in Santo Tomas, Batangas is expected to create approximately 1,000 new full-time jobs.
The facility is a joint venture between Jollibee Foods Corp. (JFC) and American agribusiness giant Cargill. The work force will come from Batangas and nearby provinces.
The poultry processing plant will provide dressed and marinated chicken to meet the needs of JFC’s brands.
In a released statement, the U.S. Embassy in the Philippines said the recent partnership between Cargill and JFC is a testament of continued strong ties between Filipinos and Americans.
