Sardines are a powerhouse of nutrition. They provide a variety of benefits. They’re a wonderful source of omega-3 acids. Eating sardines gives 2 grams of heart-healthy omega-3s per 3 ounce serving---one of the highest levels of omega-3.
Sardines are a great source of calcium and Vitamin D as well. The healthy benefits of eating sardines make them a staple in almost every Filipino dining table.

Mega Global Celebrates its Second National Sardines Day with Mega Bigay Sustansya sa Pasko launch and Mega Manufacturing Plant groundbreaking

Leading sardines company, Mega Global Corporation, highlights the importance of the humble sardines through its National Sardines Day celebration which started in 2019.  Now on its second year, Mega Global commemorates this food holiday by launching the nationwide Mega Bigay Sustansya sa Pasko Program.

Driven by a culture of malasakit, Mega Global 
rolls out a nationwide CSR initiative.  Led by the Mega Tiu Lim Foundation, Mega Global’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) arm, the company has been giving back to the people and helping those that need it most through various initiatives and programs. Mega Global
has always strived to uplift the Filipino community by providing only the best products to their consumers and contributing to nation-building efforts.

This year alone, Mega Global has been taking part in different COVID-19 and disaster relief donation drives in partnership with LGUs, hospitals and other private organizations and has been consistently providing meals to frontliners and underprivileged communities.

Recognizing that malasakit is needed now more than ever, Mega Global decided to celebrate the 2nd National Sardines Day by launching the Mega Bigay Sustansya sa Pasko Program, a CSR program that aims to feed 100,000 nutritious meals to Filipino families and communities all over the country. 
“The culture of malasakit is deeply embedded in our company, and it is second nature for us to step in when and where we can,” says William Tiu Lim. “That’s why we wanted this year’s National Sardines Day to be more meaningful by scaling up our CSR program to reach more Filipinos and breaking ground on our newest manufacturing plant which will be fully operational by February 2022.”

Mega Global invested over PHP 1 billion to build its second manufacturing plant in order to meet the growing demand for its canned goods both in Luzon and abroad, and to help boost the nation’s economy amidst the pandemic. Located in Sto. Tomas Batangas, this multi-line food manufacturing facility will implement Mega Global’s meticulous and sustainable practices in all its operations. This state-of-the-art facility  will run on energy-efficient light source to minimize its carbon footprint.

Improving Everyday Lives

On top of Mega Sardines, the company also manufactures well-loved products like Mega Tuna, Mega Creations and Mega Prime. Mega Global has always been focused on health and nutrition for the past 45 years.

With every product it makes, Mega Global hopes to provide the Filipino people with affordable food that tastes good, plus quality products that provide  the nutrients necessary for optimal health.

The Mega Bigay Sustansya sa Pasko Program is another step towards Mega Global’s goal of improving the health and nutrition of their fellow Filipinos. Led by Mega Tiu Lim Foundation in partnership with Reach Out Feed Philippines (ROFP) and Nutrition Center of the Philippines, (NCP), this initiative is a 30-day meal planning and distribution program that aims to feed over 100,000 Filipino families nationwide before the year ends. Seeing how their Covid-19 response program last April was able to positively impact the lives of those they served, the company wanted to extend this to more communities in need and to make the holiday season special for everyone despite the pandemic.

Mega Pasko sa Puso ng Pilipino

For Mega Global, National Sardines Day has gone beyond simply appreciating sardines and its importance in our pantry and on our tables. National Sardines Day has become a way for them to continue their mission in uplifting the lives of the Filipinos. The company aims to instill the importance of health and proper nutrition for all.

Mega Global is inviting everyone to join in the culmination of the 2nd National Sardines Day on November 24. There will be an online celebration on Facebook so that everyone can share their love for sardines together. Leading the event is Mega Sardines’ brand ambassador Piolo Pascual together with influencers, who will talk about the importance of family nutrition and their love for this sardines.

An Invitation to Help

Mega Global is also encouraging Filipinos to take part in this year’s Mega Bigay Sustansya sa Pasko Program. Consumers are invited to participate by purchasing any National Sardines Day Bundle in the Mega Online Store, Official Mega Global Stores in Shopee and Lazada. For each sale, 100 pesos will be donated to the ROFP beneficiaries.

“We will always work hard to improve the lives of Filipinos, whether it's through providing quality and nutritious canned goods, providing jobs, or through the company’s CSR initiatives. We believe that if we all work together, whether you’re working inside the company or just a regular consumer, we will be able to make a difference in the lives of those around us” shares Tiu Lim.
