If you’re from Pampanga, you must be familiar with those gigantic Pepsi cans that can be seen from the Mac Arthur Hi-way in the City of San Fernando. We don’t exactly know what’s inside those huge soda cans but we’re confident that good beverages are being made in that plant.
And when we talk about drinks, we’re not just about its taste but also the safety of how it was created.
Just recently, the Pepsi-Cola Products Philippines Inc.’s (PCPPI’s) plant in Pampanga received the Safety Seal from the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE). Also getting the same recognition are PCPPI’s plants in Cebu, Davao, Iloilo, Cagayan de Oro, Tanauan, and Bacolod.
PCPPI, the exclusive manufacturer of PepsiCo beverages in the country, was recognized for its strict compliance with COVID-19 health and safety standards. These include wearing of face masks and shields, availability of handwashing stations and screening or triage area, social distancing, and using contract-tracing application, among others.
Certifications are issued to establishments in the manufacturing, construction, utilities, information and communication, and warehousing industries. To ensure continuous compliance with safety protocols, the certification must be renewed after its six-month validity.
The Department of Trade and Industry, Department of Tourism, Department of Interior and Local Governance, Philippine National Police, and the different local government units join DOLE as designated authorities to issue the Safety Seal Certification Program. ##
