Gamboa said he received a letter from Baciwa yesterday, informing him that the Board of Directors has accepted the unsolicited proposal of Prime Water for a 25-year joint venture contract involving the financing, development, rehabilitation, expansion, improvement, operation and maintenance of the water supply system and septage.
Neg. Occ. grown rum turns 165
BY MARK L. GARCIA
Filipino craftsmanship and the tradition of rum-making that started in Negros Occidental will be highlighted as Tanduay Distillers Inc. announced yesterday plans to celebrate their 165th anniversary this year.
President and Chief Executive Officer Lucio Tan Jr. said in a statement that this year, the company wants to give credit to the people who made Tanduay the “world’s number one rum”, which are farmers, the chefs, the balikbayans, the working class, young professionals, and every Filipino who celebrate life.
He said they are grateful to these people, as they are most often unrecognized, but silently enjoy and consistently patronize the locally-grown rum, which is made of molasses from sugarcane.
