Landers Superstore invites everyone to support local through its latest community project - the Farmer’s Market


Looking for the freshest fruits and vegetables? Maybe it’s time to go local! Buying local ensures you get freshly picked veggies and fruits while helping our farmers who worked hard to harvest and bring these nutritious food on your table.

 

Landers Superstore, the country’s fastest-growing membership store, invites everyone to support local through its latest community project - the Farmer’s Market. Occupying a central space in all their stores’ Fresh section, the Farmer’s Market features an expansive selection of high-quality local produce sourced straight from farms across the country – from fresh strawberries and lettuce from the North to juicy pomelos and pineapples from the South. 

 

Since its introduction in the stores, the initiative has helped countless of Landers’ partner farms gain new consumers for their harvests, resulting in a steady, sustainable income especially at the height of the pandemic. Landers believes that protecting the stability and success of these farms will greatly contribute in securing food stability for everyone in the years to come.

Of course, members also benefit from this arrangement because they can enjoy their favorite fruits and vegetables at a more affordable price. Reducing the middlemen, traders, and retailers that these produce go through allows the store to price them reasonably and give fair compensation to the farmers at the same time.

 

Landers Superstore has long been on the forefront of creating community-based initiatives and disaster response efforts in the country. Together with the Philippine Army, Landers organized donation drives during natural calamities such as typhoons and earthquakes, serving as a drop-off center for donations which received overwhelming support from its members and volunteers.

                             

During the pandemic, Landers also launched the “Share the Hope” campaign to help small business owners sustain their businesses by giving them a space where they can sell their products at Landers Superstore branches. 

 

So the next time you go for your grocery run, head to Landers Superstore and fill your shopping carts with fruits, veggies, and more from their Farmer’s Market. They’re guaranteed to be fresh and of the best quality – but best of all, you’ll also be championing the cause of local farmers. 

 

Meanwhile, if you’re a farmer looking to find a new market for your fresh produce, Landers Superstore is more than happy to partner with you. You can get in touch with their team when you visit any Landers Superstore branches nationwide. Landers’ Farmer’s Market will surely help you reach more premium consumers and business owners who are always on the look-out for fresh, high quality produce.

During a press conference in Makati this morning, the former public servant said she has been looking forward to this project with Angkas which will help uplift and support the country’s motorcycle taxi industry. “Maganda ang project na ito kasi gusto ko talagang suportahan ang mga organisasyon na nagbibigay ng oportunidad sa marami. They are helping our commuters beat traffic. Mabilis na, safe pa, diba? Pero higit sa lahat, gusto ko yung nakakatulong silang magbigay ng libu-libong trabaho sa ating mga kababayan. Grabe, 30 thousand na motorcycles na pala ang nabigyan ng trabaho”, Santos-Recto said.

​This is not the first time Santos-Recto is helping push for jobs creation and additional livelihood opportunities. During the 18th Congress where she served as the Representative of the 6th District of Batangas, she served on the Committees on Poverty Alleviation and Labor and Employment where she worked on legislation to address widespread national concerns about unemployment and poverty.

​During the press conference, Santos-Recto conveyed the practicality of booking an Angkas in various situations. These include getting home early to spend quality time with family as well as saving on transportation costs since motorcycle taxis are cheaper compared to four wheels, “Masaya talaga ako sa project na ito. Alam kong malaki ang matutulong nito para i-angat ang sektor ng motorcycle taxis sa ating bansa”, the Star for All Seasons said.


When asked whether her upcoming project is a new movie in partnership with Angkas, Santos-Recto only had this to say, “Kailangan niyo po abangan. Ang masasabi ko lang po sa ngayon, marami po ang matutuwa at matutulungan ng bagong project na ito.”

Customers can now easily tip any amount to their riders when they order from foodpanda


Day in and day out, delivery partners brave the heat and traffic to deliver good food and groceries to our doorsteps – and if there is anyone more deserving of receiving some special love, it’s them. Given the challenges they face, they need our love and support to get through the tough times.

 

For the delivery partners of foodpanda, love is in the air all-year round as the leading online quick commerce platform assures its Ka-pandas with substantial support and assistance amidst rising costs of commodities and fuel prices. 

 

As shared by foodpanda Philippines operations director Patricia Jacinto, the company’s efforts go beyond the livelihood opportunity itself but also include various programs and initiatives available at the disposal of their delivery partners, aimed at helping them during these difficult times. 


Tipping your riders

 

One of the ways to assist riders in augmenting their income streams is through rider tipping. On the rider app, customers can now easily tip any amount to their riders when they order from foodpanda via credit card or e-wallet, with 100% of the amount going directly to the accounts of the riders.

 

On February 28, for every tip you give your rider using the app’s rider tipping feature, your Ka-panda will receive double the amount. The added amount, as per Jacinto, is covered by the company. “In our own way, we want to show our delivery riders gratitude and appreciation, especially during the month  we celebrate love. At the same time, it is also an encouraging measure for our app users to tip their assigned riders,” she announced. 

 

Support and assistance to Ka-pandas

 

Providing much-needed support to Ka-pandas is crucial for their well-being and safety, and foodpanda's efforts to extend this ensure that their delivery partners can continue to provide customers with reliable and efficient service. According to Jacinto, these initiatives have been ongoing since last year and will continue this year as the present situation still calls for them.

 

To help with the burden of high fuel rates, exclusive discounts from tie-ups with fuel provider partners like Unioil, Caltex, PriceLOCQ, Seaoil, Phoenix and Limitless, and Jetti are offered to Ka-pandas. 

 

In terms of the safety of their delivery partners who are always on the road, foodpanda also provides healthcare assistance and insurance protection in line with their existing programs. “The Panda Care program, in partnership with Igloo, is an insurance coverage in the event that our Ka-pandas get into unexpected road accidents while on their shifts,” Jacinto explained. “Meanwhile, MAPFRE Insurance gives them a considerable discount on their Compulsory Third Party Liability (CPTL), one of the requirements for delivery riders in their motorcycle registration or renewal.” 

 

Jacinto also mentioned that even essential health and wellness maintenance are also part of the company’s initiatives to promote the well-being of its delivery partners. “We have discounts on eyeglasses, medicines, vitamins, and medical supplies with selected partners and locations such as Top Vision Center Optical - Pasig, Multigro Healthcare x Grovic Pharma - Malabon, and Generika Drugstore. This is especially needed to help them stay fit and healthy while working daily.”

 

Providing additional income streams is what foodpanda also hopes to give its delivery fleet, especially during this challenging time. “Through what we call “quests,” our Ka-pandas will receive incentives for accomplishing specific tasks or milestones.”

 

It is indeed remarkable what Ka-pandas, and delivery partners, in general, have contributed to the online food delivery industry. Jacinto assured that foodpanda would continue to explore ways to ramp up their existing efforts and look for opportunities to help Ka-pandas, who have become an important part of their customers’ online food delivery routines nationwide.
