Madness Monday. That’s how I usually describe my Monday. Today was different.. in fact, even with just 4 hours of sleep (including 2 hours nap time), I feel better, happier and somewhat more accomplished. It must be the Chicken Macaroni salad from yesterday that’s keeping me up or the new internet connection with a faster speed> 5 Mbps, yeah baby! or both.
Sky Broadband 5Mbps plan for 2000 PhP monthly
We subscribed from Sky Broadband 5 Mbps yesterday..and so far I am loving it! Fast internet connection can really make a mommy blogger happy and stress free hahaha
Chicken Macaroni Salad
Sasabihn ko sana, I have no plans on making Macaroni salad yesterday, the truth is, I always have a stock of pasta, cheese, mayo and pineapple chunks..matagal ko na plano mag Macaroni, nakakalimutan ko lang lagi bumili ng chicken fillet. So when I received a gift pack from Bounty Fresh last Saturday, tuloy na ang Macaroni Salad.
I was surprised when this package was delivered to me. It includes one whole chicken and breast fillet. We roasted the whole chicken, but no pictures, because as soon as the chicken was out in the oven, my kids started devouring it haha
Actually, may party sana ako kahapon dito sa bahay..but due to changing weather, most of my guests were sick.. perfect timing sana para ipatikim sa mga friends ang aking roasted chicken.. but the kids already knew that we will be having roasted chicken on Sunday..eh di tinuloy ko na!
Well.. did you know that Bounty Fresh Food, Inc was the first Philippine company in 2009 to win the Best Poultry and Livestock Company Award at the 2009 Asian Livestock Industry awards held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. BFFI topped categories like Technological Excellence, Food Safety, Marketing Excellence and Industry Leadership. Deserve na desrve nila ang tite na “Asia’s Best” di ba?
So how’s Asia’s Best chicken produced?
Feeds. It all starts with the feeds. Bounty Fresh’s chicken expert (shout out to Allan, the Chemist Dad! hello!)make sure that the raw material used are carefully selected and feeds are always delivered fresh to the farms.
Mother Hen aka Breeders (the one that produce day old chicks) are kept in breeder farm under controlled environment. The breeder house has automated feeding and egg collection systems that ensure timely collection and of course clean and safe environment for the eggs.
Hatchery. From the breeder house, eggs are brought to the hatchery for incubation and hatching. Bounty Fresh was the first company to introduce the the single stage hatchery incubation system. At dahil wala akong alam sa hatchery incubation system, may I consult ako kay Mr. Google.. ang siste, may multiple stage pala.. at sa pag- aaral eh mas maganda ang single stage since less contamination. Sa multiple stage, parang nililipat lipat ang itlog, depending on their age.. parang hagdan lang na unti- unti silang umaakyat hanggang umabot sila sa 21 days.. in single stage naman, nasa isang lugar lang sila with precised temperature. Obviously, with this hatchery system, the eggs will hatch into chicks with better quality.
Broiler Farms. After hatching, the eggs are borught to tunnel-ventilated broiler farms where they are grown. As it is with the Breeder house and hatchery, the environment in broiler farm is also controlled. Also, the chicks are more relaxed since they have more space to roam around. Eto pa.. ang mga farm personnel na nagpapakain sa mga chicks eh kailangan maligo muna bago pumasok..
Processing Plant. This is the last step to your table.. este before it goes to your favorite supermarket. When chicks are fully grown and become healthy chicken with the right size and weight they are brought to Bounty Fresh’s Triple-A Processing Plant (certified by National Meat Inspection Commission) for processing. A thorough inspection is done to make sure that the chicken is disease free and free from foreign materials. Chicken products are then vacuum- sealed to keep the natural flavors and juices in, keep bacteria out and prolong the product’s refrigerated shelf life .
As Bounty Fresh AVP for Operations Development Department, Carl Chung, puts it: ” As your Chicken Expert, we commit ourselves in giving the Filipinos Asia’s Best Chicken.”
