CBIG: Protecting the Unsung Heroes of COVID-19

During the duration of the lockdown period because of COVID-19, We realized a lot of things in our life, we've also learned to make the most of what we have and to adjust ourselves to the "new normal". It was a perfect example of an event in our life where we've been caught off guard since almost all of the access that we have to the outside world has been limited that even the ability to buy groceries and personal needs has been a luxury. While the whole Metro Manila is being quarantined, few brave souls came out to aid their fellow Filipinos in delivering their needs during the entire duration of the quarantine while risking their health to support their families while their regular jobs have been halted.

Celebrating “A Blue Christmas” with USA Blueberries

  Join the fun recipe contest and win GCs! I’ve noticed that more and more Filipinos are eating and including blueberries in their meals. I must admit, I’m a fan of blueberries myself! The enticing bluish-purple hue of this berry will surely catch your attention.   The balance of the sweet and tart makes blueberries perfect for desserts like cheesecakes, muffins, and ice cream, as well as jams, dressings, and sauces. Yummy treats to tickle the taste buds!   More than the taste, blueberries are low in calories but high in nutrients. A serving of raw blueberries, which is about 140 grams, only has 80 calories! A healthy and delicious way to snack.   Blueberries are excellent sources of manganese and Vitamin K for bone metabolism and development. They also provide vitamin C for a healthy immune system and dietary fiber for heart health.   Although fresh blueberries are only found in stores from May to September, we can still enjoy them in frozen and canned forms. I recommend blueberries f

Packaging Company Betafoam Rebuilt Itself From The Ashes with The Help of This Energy Expert

  How does one rebuild from literal ashes? You do it with strength, character, a lot of optimism, and the right partners. For Betafoam Corporation, an insulation and packaging company located in Dasmariñas, Cavite, this holds true. During the pandemic, Betafoam increased its operations for products that saw higher demand, including packaging for essential goods and logistics companies, bubble wrap, and plastic sheets. Betafoam Corporation has been manufacturing insulation and specialized packaging since 2003. In 2014, Betafoam was on its eleventh year in manufacturing polyethylene (PE) foam when its two-building facility in Dasmariñas Technopark, Cavite was decimated by a fire. “Our entire factory got burned. We had to start from zero. The product we make is injected with LPG so it’s flammable at a certain point of manufacturing. Unfortunately, that sparked the fire and it burned the building down,” says President Greg Marañon. While planning their new facility, Betafoam knew that they
