Lapanday Foods Corporation firmly believes that social responsibility is best instilled through the empowerment of its people. This philosophy has inspired the growth of the company's Labor-Management Councils (LMCs) and Cooperatives, which have in turn created local health, education, and livelihood projects aimed at benefiting employees and the surrounding communities.

Many of these groups have received awards from the Philippine Government and international labor institutions for their accomplishments and in particular for their contributions towards community-building.

The Foundation, encourages earnest involvement among community residents and grass-roots organizations that extend opportunities for income generation, education, and improvement in health and living standards.


REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Davao is the regional center for trade, commerce and tourism, not only on the island of Mindanao, but also for the whole of the Southern Philippines. Fertile soil and ample rainfall help to further nurture Davao's lush bounty and make it one of the foremost reasons why Mindanao is known as "the fruit basket of the Philippines."

Business has been flourishing in the region, and the trend is being sustained by continued infrastructural development aimed at reinforcing Davao's viability as an industrial hub and a gateway to the dynamic trade in Asia.

The progressive environment in Davao has attracted and encouraged the steady growth of an industrious and skilled workforce. While agricultural workers still constitute the majority, an increasing number of people are honing their talents in industry and technology, preparing Davao for the demands of the future.
