Michelena said in an interview.

“None of this would have been possible without you, my dear Cocoplanners! With the collective efforts you’ve done for this company, I thank you all… I commend you for a job well done. But please bear in mind that this is not the end, this is just the beginning! Let us continue what we’re doing for the benefit of our planholders and of the company”, Pres. Michelena added.

Moreover, in the recently concluded 19th ANCA, CUP promised to continue not to let every Filipino go blindfolded to the realities of life as consumers. With this year’s theme ‘Leading the Consumers towards efficient lighting for a brighter future’, Atty. Quirino A. Marquinez, CUP National President said, everyone is motivated to enhance efficiency in management of human resources, and in the production of affordable and quality products, so as to attain ultimate benefits for the consumers.
In addition, Atty. Rodel Taton of CUP said that today, in this time of highly globalize economies, the task of the consumer movement became more multifaceted and tricky. The consumers’ issues do not simply dwell on the prices of prime commodities but it also includes saving the world we live in. Thus, CUP would like to impart education, shed light to the fainting consumer minds as part of their objectives of protecting the welfare and interest of the Filipino Consumers.
CUP through ANCA would like to encourage and inspire manufacturers, producers, wholesales, retailers, businessmen, professionals, traders and craftsmen to continuously render the best services and deliver high quality products.
