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!

Healthy Balance Between Work And Family Life - Part 2

Spicing up lunch hour

Cannery workers get more than a hot meal during their lunch break. Every Friday, the “Cannery Idol” singing contest goes live at the mess hall. About five workers vie for a slot to sing their favorite piece during the weekly noontime show. Weekly winners qualify for the Final Competitions set on the Cannery's Annual Christmas Gran-Bayle. The contest is organized by the Cannery HR and Operations teams.

Infants get anti-measles shots

Del Monte joins the call of the Department of Health to protect infants from measles, one of the leading causes of Filipino infant mortality. Under the Anti Tipdas campaign, the Philippine government provides free measles vaccines that are administered by government and private medical institutions across the country. At the Phillips Memorial Hospital in Camp Phillips, children of plantation workers who are seven months old receive free vaccination administered by Dr. Angie Vi ajar and her team every other Saturday. Booster shots are given to children who have reached one year and three months. Saturday is “Baby Wellness Day” at PMH where mothers bring newborns and infants for consultation and free immunization. Children of cannery workers get their shots at the Bugo dispensary. Teams from rural health units in Bukidnon immunized infants from different plantation camps and nearby communities at company social halls.

Technical skills education help rural families earn more

Some 300 graduates of technical courses offered by the Del Monte Foundation this year received certificates during joint graduation rites held in Camp Phillips. The graduates are residents of communities near Del Monte's plantation and cannery and company-contracted pineapple and papaya farms. DMFI Executive Director Maya Malferrari said the program helps housewives, family heads and members learn skills vital to augmenting family income. Many of the Foundation's graduates now earn from regular employment and micro businesses. Among this year's graduates are some 30 women residents of Sumilao who completed a course on abaca-weaving, boosting Bukidnon's lumad weaving tradition using locally-grown abaca fiber. The Foundation, local government units, and the Technical Skills Education and Fiber Industry Development Authorities joined hands to conduct these training workshops.

Food Service team takes refresher on project management

Key executives of Marketing's Food Service team completed a workshop on project management held in Manila. Sales Training and Development Mgr. Bullet Cusodio and the Bugo HR team worked closely to help participants prepare themselves for our “2 x 5” challenge (doubling our business by the end of the decade). The course, conducted by the Kepner-Tregoe Consultancy group, is designed to improve problem-solving, decision-making, and interpersonal performance. These skills help ensure that a job is done on time, according to budget, and produce the desired results.

Heritage of Quality, Philippine Packing Corporation pioneered the Philippine pineapple industry. Calpak's researchers traveled the world to look for an ideal place to grow pineapple. They chose the rain-fed Bukidnon plateau as site of Calpak's new plantation. For over 80 years now, Del Monte grows pineapple in the province.

LMC teams bring cheer

From the pineapple fields, canning plant and production offices, Del Monte workers trekked to communities in Bukidnon, Cagayan de Oro and Misamis Oriental to bring cheer and goodwill to neighbors.

On a chosen day, we share food, goods and company with families who live near our work areas.

Now on its fifth year, “Malipayong Pasko, Silingan!” (Bugo) and “Pasko sa Baryo” (Plantation) continues our tradition of sharing goodwill and serving host communities.

The company and its workers jointly organize this annual gift-giving event as part of the LMC program. Employees donate goods, pack them and distribute the gifts. Over 2,000 families are among this year's recipients.

Del Monte booters win in local tourney

Children of workers at the Plantation shone in the Football Festival organized by the Cagayan de Oro-Misamis Oriental Football Association (CMOFA) in the city's Pelez Sports Center. Del Monte School under coach Erwin Josue won the championship in the 7-9 years old bracket, beating Abbas Orchard School, 2-1.

Del Monte among honorees in "Anlaw Ta Libona"

On behalf of Del Monte Philippines, Plantation Safety, Environment and Community Development Manager Francis Rivera received a plaque of appreciation from the Libona local government led by Mayor Aurelio Lopez and Vice Mayor Eriberto Cabanez and DILG Regional Director Quirino Libunao at the “Gabi Ng Parangal” during the Golden Jubilee celebration of “Anlaw Ta Libona” (Libona Day). Among the honorees were community leaders and organizations that have contributed to the growth of the town and rendered outstanding services.

Noche Buena is a special time for Joseph Madula, an employee at Del Monte's Papaya Operations Office, his wife Rosalie and young children Julius Cesar, 6, and John Rich, 1, at home in Camp Phillips, Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon. On this special occasion Del Monte's Noche Buena ham takes center stage. Del Monte Ham comes from specially cured pork leg (done by experts at Plantation Livestock under Dr. Jay Escandor). Cooks at Del Monte Lodge under Supervisor Saling Namoc and Manager Bella Quimpo transformed this cured leg into a delicious masterpiece - pre-boiled, baked and topped with pineapple slices and cherries - ready to serve to family and friends.
