A partnership with consuelo chito MADRIGAL foundation
Bakery School Philippines
The need to provide better opportunities for underprivileged Filipinoyouth prompted us to open a Bakery School in the country.
In partnership with the Consuelo Chito Madrigal Foundation (CCMF), Bakery School Philippines opened its doors to some 20 scholars on October 4, 2021.
The school is located at the CCMF Compound within the Payatas Community in Quezon City and most of its scholars come from marginalized families in the area.
Mr. Bernard Poplimont, General Manager Puratos Philippines, “Caring for our community, our industry and contributing to its professionalization while giving chances to under-privileged children is such a privilege. Our top priorities for Puratos Philippines is to contribute with positive impact to people, community and equal rights opportunities for all. Our employees are so engaged with this initiative. We are just grateful”.
In August 2023 a first group of 17 students graduated from the Bakery School School Philippines. All of them have been employed in the food industry, working at Puratos, hotels and other food service companies.
TESTIMONIAL LAURENCE BELARDO
“I would like to thank the Bakery School Philippines for giving the opportunity to all of the students to achieve their dreams. I am also grateful to our instructors because of their hard work and dedication to mold us into excellent bakers and pastry chefs in the future. I have learned a lot through the course of our program, not just about skills and techniques but more importantly, about having the right attitude and professionalism. As months passed by, it made me realize how the foundation is able to help many underprivileged youngsters in making their dreams come true. I hope that there will be more Bakery Schools in the future to give people with a passion for baking an opportunity to learn and develop their skills.”
