Orlico Food Corp

ORLICO Food Corporation soon brings iron fortified rice (IFR) technology to Region VIII ORLICO Food Corporation is a private company with strong sense of corporate social responsibility whose aims are to go beyond regulatory compliance and engage in actions that further social good, beyond the interest of the firm. ORLICO vows to help address one of the country’s pressing problem, malnutrition, especially in Region 8, where the owners’ home town, Tacloban City, belongs.

On January 21-22, 2016, the Food and Nutrition Research Institute of the Department of Science and Technology (FNRI-DOST) conducted a comprehensive technology transfer training for the company at the FNRI Pilot Plant. ORLICO earlier signed the Technology Licensing Agreements for the production of Iron Rice Premix (IRP), Iron-fortified Rice (IFR), and Multi -nutrient Growth Mix (MGM) in October 2015. The two-day training was divided into two parts. The first part comprised of FNRI Institutional Briefing and lectures on Food Safety, and 5S’s of Good Housekeeping, all of which were discussed by the staff of Food and Nutrition Training Unit (FNTU).

The second part of the training was facilitated by the technology generators’ group. Ms.Marcela C. Saises, Senior Science Research Specialist, discussed the technology on the production of IRP and IFR and the use of extruder machine. Ms. Trainidad II T. Arcangel, Science Research Specialist II, discussed and demonstrated the conduct of quality assurance of such technologies. While, Engr. Charlie E. Adona, Senior Science Research Specialist, demonstrated the production process at the FNRI Pilot Plant. After the production, the staff of ORLICO, including its owners, Mr. Jimmy A. Macling and Mrs. Rensyl D. Macling, had hands on experience on quality assurance through physical analysis meeting the FNRI set standard.

This partnership of ORLICO with the FNRI-DOST is a big boost to government’s effort in fighting malnutrition and at the same time providing livelihood in the countryside.
