MFC has been a consistent recipient of this recognition by the DOLE. It is also being cited this year for showing compliance to protocols set by the government as part of COVID-19 prevention. It has also been recognized for ticking the checklist required of companies on general labor standards, occupational safety and health. Aside from the Safety Seal award, MFC also passed the said requirements with flying colors with no noted deviations during the inspection conducted last April 26.
The Porac-based international brand is one of very few local companies that even hired workers at the height of the global pandemic.
