The Food Manufacturing Cluster for the K to 12 Plus Project was formed by AFOS Foundation for Entrepreneurial Development together with its primary project partner Cebu Chamber of Commerce, Inc. Food Manufacturing is a very important industry in Cebu, from dried mangoes to bottled preservatives, canned goods and processed meat. Cebu food manufacturing firms cater to a local and global market. It consists of companies who contribute a significant amount in the country’s GDP. The food manufacturing firm involved in the cluster include Magic Melt, Inc.; Anita’s Bakeshop; San Jose Bakeshop; Central Seafood Cebu, Inc. and Virginia Foods, Inc. These firms worked together with the teachers of Barrio Luz National High School and the TVI Philippine School for Culinary Arts to design the curriculum for Grade 11 and 12 Technical Vocational track under the Food Manufacturing strand. The students will train under the Food Processing NC I and NC II program that will prepare them for work under HACCP standards and give them skills important for food manufacturing. Additional subjects like Cookery NC II and Baking and Pastry NC II will give them a holistic set of skills that will shape them into world class food processing experts.
