These awards motivate us to continue initiatives that promote social good and positive impact to the society,” said Meralco PowerGen Corporation (MGEN) President and CEO Jaime T. Azurin.

The Aplaya Sardines Enterprise began with the goal of providing an alternative livelihood for the fisherfolks during off-peak seasons.
