Planters Products, Inc.: The Year in the Review

A Company Working with Philippine Agricultural Evolution

Despite the challenges brought on by the COVID-19 epidemic, as well as other disasters like the Taal eruption and multiple powerful typhoons, throughout 2020 and into 2021, Planters Products Inc. (PPI) as a company still forged onward in its effort to revitalize itself. The goal was to kickstart an evolution for the company, and although still a work in progress, much has been done to show that this new journey is well underway.

Though PPI has been a supplier of agrichemicals to help farmers with their crops, the company has kept an eye on the growing push for environmental awareness and sustainable living. This is why one of the major changes of the company is in figuring out its identity in current times, to enable the best possible adaptation. From a beginning in helping sugarcane farmers, PPI is now a rice-centric company, and is hoping to transition once more into a company that produces more sustainable but still farmer-friendly products.

Ultimately, the goal of the company is to become a beacon of light within the Philippine agricultural sector—a platform that gives those in the sector a way to uplift, support, and promote themselves to enable the continued growth and flourish of agriculture within the economy.
