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.

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.

Unfortunately, that sparked the fire and it burned the building down,” says President Greg Marañon. While planning their new facility, Betafoam knew that they

These freshly baked and melt-in-your-mouth chocolate chip cookies were the delicious creation of Grand Alphatech International Corporation (GALINCO).
