Mighty Corp. collaborates with farmers up north in hopes of making a new major player in the tobacco industry.
The Vice President of Mighty Corp. stated that the company already asked the permission of the National Tobacco Administration for the substantial increase of their tobacco purchase as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility.
“We are grateful and we are looking forward to the firm commitments of Mighty Corporation to help the 65,000 strong tobacco farmers in the Philippines with their pronouncements this year to purchase 10-million kilograms of tobacco leaves and the P10-million outreach projects for tobacco farmers,” Said the representative of the NTA.
He claimed that more farmers are now glad that their tobacco will be more profitable in the local market.
“Now that we are assured of an alternative market, besides other tobacco companies, our members will again be inspired to devote larger areas to the cultivation of Ilocandia’s most important cash crop,” he said.
