On behalf of the BCBP community, we congratulate Bro. Jun Saret, PSD of Bulacan Chapter, and President of Leonie Agri Corp.

Department of Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala handed the award to LAC Thursday, October 7, 2010, at the World Trade Center, Pasay City during the opening of the Agrilink 2010 Conference with the theme ”GOOD AGRICULTURAL PRACTICES: KEY TO COMPETITIVENESS.” Since 2007, LAC is only the 2nd recipient of GAP National Award and the only organic certified farm.
We are all proud of Bro. Jun for his leadership of LAC, a certified integrated organic farm which complies with the Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) regulations of Department of Agriculture and Philippines National Standard (PNS). These government agencies audited LAC and found the company producing agricultural products according to established safety and quality parameters. Their inspection found LAC’s farms implementing environment friendly methods, maintaining a high degree of safety in operations and most specially looking out for the welfare of farm workers.
In the year 2008, LAC was also recipient of the National Organic Award – SECRETARY’S AWARD FOR OUTSTANDING ORGANIC FARMING INITIATIVE Farmer Category- awarded by Gilberto F. Layese, Director of Bureau of Agriculture and Fisheries Products Standards, Department of Agriculture).
