DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

Go For Greater Heights – Part 2

Teamwork multiplies success. “Our Cannery Systems and Liquids Processing teams led the start-up of a key innovation to increase volume as well as quality of juice production. Our efforts paid off: we delivered higher output of prime juice and concentrate at higher recoveries (common cases processed from every ton of fruit). I've worked through both sides of this project and my team expects more tasks and more wins in the future!” Orville Parreno, Supervisor, Cannery Liquids Processing

Make us more competitive. “We aim for higher recoveries in the future. Though we're far from record levels, changes in how we think and work makes us more competitive. Thanks to support programs like machine overhaul (ginacas, seamers, fillers at less downtime) and TPM (Total Productive Maintenance), we're gradually building a Zero Defect mind set among our teams.” Susan Oraiz, Supervisor, Cannery Preparation

Grow self-confidence. “As team leader, it's inherent for me to master field SOPs, implement innovations that can improve plant growth, and focus on targets. I involve my teams in what I do - at work and even after work hours - and let them understand our goals. Last year, we found ways to go beyond our targets despite really bad weather. We planted on 500 hectares. This achievement has raised self-confidence of my team - 3 lead men, 6 field maintenance men and 20 service providers - in what we can do to raise MTH (metric tons per hectare) come next harvest cycle. My wife Connie is 100% behind me as I face a tough job ahead.” Julius Tagupa, Area Supervisor, Plantation North Crop Production

Build ties with the community. “Sitio Kiantig (San Jose, Quezon) was one of the most depressed communities we had seen in South Bukidnon. Del Monte Foundation brought change to this remote village (pop.: 1,000) as it paved the way for our smooth entry into a new farm site. The community's response to our presence was warm; they understood we were not only there to plant fruit but cared as well for the people. This experience clearly illustrates that helping the community, which sustains our operations, is good “business sense.” Our Sweet 16 Growing Operations and new Packing House (also in same town) - backed by improved land preparation practices, pineapple sucker plantings and fruit varieties will no doubt drive growth for our business beyond. Make it happen!” Eugene Gerong, Manager, Plantation Operations

Take care of our assets. “My team aims for timely and quality growing - despite many odds. Our aging equipment often experience breakdowns, leading to longer downtime, with some units not available to meet schedules or cover backlogs. That's why we prepare well for our tasks - we plan, work fulltime, and more important, instill in our people a deep sense of concern and care for our equipment, so these will last longer and make our jobs easier.” Nono Soguilon, Supervisor, Plantation Operations

Sharing lessons on connectivity. Sixteen executives from our Customer Development Group in Manila learned first-hand key operational processes as they joined the Mindanao Immersion Program conducted at the Plantation and Cannery. The program helps key executives gain direct exposure and involvement in the work requirements and conditions of the entire Mindanao Operations. Over two days, the 'trainees' tried their hand at what 90 percent of employees in the Company do everyday - sort, load and plant pineapple seeds, harvest fruit, pack pineapple slices, label filled cans and many other tasks.

Participants described the immersion as “a very positive experience.” It gave them a good grasp of the interconnectivity of functions and teams within the company. They were deeply touched as well by the value that our people put on their work, no matter what they do and where they are in the organization. They have gained a deep respect and appreciation for the many contributions of people across the Company. The operational efficiency and quality of our products validate our strong selling points. Immersion Class, all adopted sons and daughters of Mindanao Operations, now eagerly await harvest from pineapple crowns they planted - at the end of an 18-month cycle! Corporate Training Team

What a great day for Del Monte! Product Managers Justine Ferrer and Angeline Go topped PANA's Annual Brand Camp, in a feat that clearly illustrates our Core Value “Passion for Winning.” They will represent the PHILIPPINES in the Cannes Lions Festival, in the Young Lions Marketers' Competition among Marketers, aged 30 years and below, after besting delegates from Unilever, Nestle, Coke, Jollibee, BPI, Smart and NutriAsia.

Marketing Group Head Angie Flaminiano shared that the event was designed ala Boot Camp where competitors had one mission: given a case study, executed a Marketing Brief under the unrelenting scrutiny of experts in the advertising, media, and marketing industry.

Take us farther! “Despite various challenges in the Trade, there's always something new and different that nudges me to take it farther here in Del Monte. I've built quite a network in the trade, and I get solid support from our in-house team. What's best about this company is that it rewards the efforts of hardworking, innovative and committed professionals. Our annual sales conference honors achievers, the best among us. There's a full load of opportunities for anyone wanting to hone skills or aspire for the next level. Professional development complements personal growth in such a way that career and family life enjoy quite a healthy balance.” Sasa Delfin, Group Customer Development Manager, The Fort. Solid team, Sasa Delfin, Group Customer Development Manager for Greater Manila Area, with teammates manager Glen Villamarin,supervisor Fritzie Tiu and specialist Ferdie Perez.
