PORK SHOP ORMOC - Cebu-based meat shop OPENS second shop in Eastern Visayas


Ormoc City - Consumers in the province of Leyte will now be assured of a steady supply of fresh and local pork after The Pork Shop opened their first branch in the city today.


The Pork Shop recently held the grand opening of their branch in Naval, Biliran last month. The branch is the first of many branches that were lined up to open in major economic areas in the province through their franchisee Atty. Manuel Montejo, Jr.


Eastern Visayas, specifically the province of Leyte has several municipalities that were hit by ASF forcing the government to cull at least 4,000 hogs. This resulted to shortage in supply and driving prices of pork to a higher than normal level.


With the opening of the branch in Ormoc City, Atty. Montejo said he pleased to be able to help augment the supply of pork that is guaranteed fresh and locally produced.


“We can assure the market of the quality of the pork products that we will be selling in the branch. This is consistent with Virginia Farms, Inc.’s promise of high quality local pork products,” said Montejo.


Virginia Farms president Rolando E. Tambago said they have lined up several branches for opening in the province of Leyte and Samar this year including Leyte’s capital Tacloban City and Catbalogan City in Samar.


The Pork Shop is Virginia Farms, Inc. retail arm that sells fresh chilled pork products. Aside from Ormoc City, the company now have a total of 47 branches in Cebu, three (3) branches in Iloilo City, one branch in Naval, Biliran.


“The goal is to make sure every Filipino will have access to guaranteed fresh, local and safe to eat pork products that is why we continue to expand and open branches even in the middle of this pandemic,”said Tambago.
