San Miguel Foods Inc.s Poultry Contract Breeding Business OpportunityJoining the San Miguel Foods Inc.’s (Magnolia) roster of poultry contract breeders and growers is a good business opportunity for farm owners.

The success story of Magnolia’s contract grower, Ofel Dator together with her husband Serafin Dator, owners of Ofel’s Poultry Farm, began breeding chicken in 2005 with just minimal capital on hand. Today, in just a span of four years, Ofel’s Poultry Farm is doing a great business, earning well over P2.5 million a year.

So, why they chose this kind of investment?
1. The fact that Magnolia Fresh Chicken is one of San Miguel Food Inc.’s power brands, and therefore, it is a sure-fire investment.

2. They firmly believed, even in the face of the current economic crisis, that there would be no end to the need for chicken meat products — and therefore, no end to the need for their products.

3. It is a way to help provide jobs for other people in their community.

Now, are you ready to be one? For sure, you’d definitely be in good company since you’re joining the elite team involved in delivering Filipinos their beloved Magnolia Fresh Chicken.
