I will not stand by idly as millions of my fellow Filipinos go hungry
while I pursue my dreams and build my riches.
Balangay's Best is the brand of high quality, wild-caught and naturally processed sustainable seafood products made by Artisan Filipino Fishers.
These products are manufactured and distributed by Fishers & Changemakers, Inc. , the prime mover and lone social enterprise to partner with artisan local fishers in the Philippines.
Initially, they've started at Bantayan Island during the Rehabilitation efforts of Typhoon Yolanda a.k.a Haiyan, the strongest typhoon that struck our country, to journey with the fishers as they fully recover from the typhoon's aftermath.
FCI realized that to be able to sustain the business the marine degradation should be also addressed. Recently, FCI sealed a partnership with RARE Philippines to work hand on hand for more sustainable seafood. With this partnership, they were able to expand to (6) six Fish Forever Enterprise sites :
* Municipality of Lubang, Occidental Mindoro
* Municipality of Looc, Occidental Mindoro
* Municipality of Ayungon, Negros Oriental
* Municipality of Bindoy, Negros Oriental
* Municipality of Cortes, Surigao Del Sur
*Municipality of Cantilan, Surigao Del Sur
FCI creates synergy between multi-sector partnerships to create a holistic value chain from catch to table.
