Jollibee Foundation is now Jollibee Group Foundation, Inc.

Jollibee Group Foundation, Inc. is now the Official Name of Jollibee Foundation! 

"Jollibee Foods Corporation (JFC) announces the renaming of its corporate foundation beginning 2013. 

Making itself more representative of the various business units of JFC, which includes Jollibee, Greenwich, Chowking, Red Ribbon, Mang Inasal and Burger King in the Philippines, Jollibee Foundation has formally changed its name to Jollibee Group Foundation, Inc. or JGF. 

The tweaking of Foundation name also seeks to serve more communities through its development programs.


“The Board of Trustees of the Foundation adopted the new name to fully represent the Foundation’s greater commitment to provide more impactful service to the communities it works with. Other than the change in name, everything else in the Foundation’s mission, programs, and structure will remain the same,” said JGF President Grace Tan Caktiong in her statement. “Our flagship programs, the Busog, Lusog, Talino (BLT) School Feeding Program and the Farmer Entrepreneurship Program (FEP) are part of our thrust of promoting Food Security for Filipino families. We are grateful for and count on the continued support of our business units, employees, business partners, customers and partners to help realize the vision of every Filipino family enjoying a life defined by dignity, purpose and active participation in nation-building”, she added.

To date, the BLT program – an initiative of JGF in partnership with local education stakeholders that addresses hunger among Grades 1 and 2 pupils and helps them to stay in school and learn better – covers more than one thousand schools nationwide; providing daily lunch to 38,000 public school pupils. This brings the total number of BLT pupils covered by the program to over 60,000 since its implementation in 2007. 

On the other hand, FEP, in partnership with Catholic Relief Services and National Livelihood Development Corporation, harnesses the JFC supply chain by giving the opportunity to small farmers to be direct suppliers of Jollibee and other institutional buyers, empowering them to be more productive and profitable. It has helped more than 400 small farmers in Nueva Ecija, Pangasinan, Quezon, Ilocos Sur, Tarlac, Agusan del Sur, Davao Oriental, and Bukidnon through training and technical assistance on production, marketing and finance."

5 Major Tips on Starting a Business

Here are the 5 Major Tips on Starting a Business as enumerated by Wilson Lee Flores from PhilStar. 2013, Year of the Water Snake is said to be a good year to start a business.

According to Mr. Wilson he just recently I bought a new book by self-made British billionaire Richard Branson titled Like A Virgin: Secrets They Won’t Teach You at Business School at Hudson News inside Singapore’s Changi Airport.

In the first chapter of this interesting, pragmatic and candid book, Branson shares five secrets to starting a business:

1. If you don’t enjoy it, don’t do it. Business requires a lot of time and hard work, so enjoy it and love your business.

2. Be innovative. Create something different whether it’s a product, service or brand.

3. Pride of association works wonders. People or employees are your firm’s biggest assets — make people proud and happy to be associated with your business.

4. Lead by listening. Be a good listener, no one has a monopoly on good ideas or good advice.

5. Be visible. Don’t just hide behind a desk as a boss, go out and keep on meeting people — whether your staff or your clients.

Video- DOH “Belly Gud for Health” Dance Move

Learn DOH “Belly Gud for Health” Dance Move.

Press Release / 14 January 2012:

Health Secretary Enrique T. Ona encourages the Department of Health (DOH) executives to lead a healthy lifestyle and undergo a weight loss program called “Belly Gud for Health.”

“Stress that comes with management work can lead to binge eating and lack of physical activity that may result to overnutrition. We don’t want our health executives to suffer the consequences of non-communicable diseases (NCDs), thus we are offering our undersecretaries, assistant secretaries, directors, division chiefs and program managers a light and enjoyable challenge to be fit by attaining and maintaining a desirable waist circumference,” Secretary Ona said.

Waist circumference is a simple and easy measure of central obesity which is the amount of visceral fat (the fat that surrounds the inner organs) among adults and a significant indicator of risk for NCDs particularly heart disease and stroke. The desirable waist circumference is less than 90 centimeters (cm) for males and less than 80 cm for females.

“Belly Gud for Health” is a six-month challenge where the DOH executives undergo nutrition and physical activity counselling, healthy diet, aerobic and isometric exercises, and stress management. They are provided with DOH-produced exercise videos to guide them with some proper workouts. Each executive will also be assigned a personal fitness mentor who will constantly remind them about diet and physical activities to follow. After three months, the executives will be required to join a Fitness Camp where indoor and outdoor fitness and wellness activities are conducted by a team of healthy lifestyle experts.

A monthly monitoring and recording of their waist circumference will be made and monthly recognition and rewards will be provided for those who have decreased their previous waist circumference. At the end of the six-month challenge, the male and female executives who attained the greatest reduction of their belly fats will be declared as winners. Prizes include health products and services, like fruit baskets and gift certificates to wellness spa.

Last year, “Belly Gud for Health” was conducted among DOH rank-and-file employees. From a total of 779 personnel, 362 or 46.5% attempted to accomplish desirable waist circumference levels for the 6-month period. At the end of the challenge, only 10 were recognized as top performers. The top female lost 9.55 cm while the top male lost 5.45 cm.

Secretary Ona also revealed that this year the DOH intends bring the challenge dubbed the "Belly Gud for Health: Executive Edition" to other government offices as well.

Black Nazarene 2013- DOH Advisory for Devotees


Here's the Department of Health (DOH) advisory for the Black Nazarene devotees. Meanwhile as of this posting, thousands of devotees of the Black Nazarene formed a line stretching more than one kilometer at the Quirino Grandstand in Manila as the traditional "pahalik" started Tuesday afternoon.

Metropolitan Manila Development Authority traffic discipline office head Yves Gonzalez said that as of 1:53 p.m., the line was about 1.45 km long.

DOH strongly urge the devotees to adopt prudent measures, such as bringing their own water and enough food, to avoid any untoward incidents during the yearly procession.

“It would be more practical and healthy for devotees to bring their own food and snacks to the procession and avoid street foods as these are exposed to dust particles and other pollutants in the streets and are sometimes unsanitary,” Secretary of Health Enrique T. Ona said, adding they should also prevent dehydration by bringing their drinking water.

Devotees are also advised not to bring along children during the Feast of the Black Nazarene to avoid injuries due to stampede and jostling. Also, small children or infants who are most vulnerable to diseases can easily get sick in these crowded environments.


Ona also revealed that DOH emergency health teams will be on standby. On January 8, a DOH-National Capital Region Medical Team will be at the Quirino Grandstand. In case of mass casualty incidents, back up ambulance teams from the Jose Reyes Memorial Medical Center, San Lazaro Hospital, Dr. Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital, Tondo Medical Center, and Philippine Orthopedic Center will also be available.

On January 9, emergency medical teams will be posted at the following locations: Quirino Grandstand near Museo Pambata; National Museum; Post Office/Liwasang Bonifacio; Metropolitan Theater area; Mercury Drug near Quiapo Church; City State Hotel along Quezon Boulevard; 7-11 Quezon Blvd North Bound; UST Lerma; and Palanca Street near Ayala Bridge.

Code White Alert is up in all Metro Manila hospitals from January 8-10. The DOH Health Emergency Management Staff will continuously monitor the event and will be at the Quiapo Command Post coordinating with other agencies involved in the celebration.
