Mighty Corporation on Wednesday assured Rep. Eric Singson of the 2nd District of Ilocos Sur, who is president of the Northern Alliance in the House of Representatives, of its full and unwavering support to uplift the lives of farming families in the tobacco-producing provinces in Northern Luzon.
Geoffrey Gadiana, a Mighty official, relayed the company’s commitment to Singson.
“Mighty Corporation stands firm on its commitment to help the tobacco farmers in the Philippines with its pronouncements this year to purchase more tobacco leaves and to continue its outreach projects for tobacco farmers,” Gadiana informed Singson.
“This is not only a big help to the 120,000 tobacco farmers but will also boost the economy of the tobacco-producing provinces,” Singson said.
Singson also lauded Mighty’s unswerving commitment to directly help tobacco farmers produce better quality tobacco that included the donation of farm implements like tractors and irrigation pumps to the farmers of the National Tobacco Association of Tobacco Farmers Association and Cooperatives in La Union early last year.
The farmers represented Abra, Cagayan, Isabela, La Union, Pangasinan and the Ilocos Provinces.
