PCPPI donates Covid-19 test kits to Naga City

(Edited Press Release)

Pepsi-Cola Products Philippines, Inc. (PCPPI)—the exclusive manufacturer of PepsiCo beverages in the country—has donated more than 800 Covid-19 rapid test kits to Naga City.

PCPPI Bicol Regional Operations General Manager Francisco L. Escala, Jr. turned over the test kits to Naga City Mayor Nelson Legacion, aiming to help the local government unit maintain its health and safety standards to stop the spread of the virus in the Bicol region.

This is among the efforts initiated by the company as it aims to extend help to the public sector in the country’s long fight against Covid-19. In April 2020, or barely a month after the first lockdown in the country was implemented, PCPPI set donation drives across its facilities nationwide for the benefit of frontliners, including those who are manning checkpoints to ensure health and safety protocols are always observed and to regulate travels as the government intended to flatten the curve.
