DAVAO CITY — The cold storage facility at the Anflo Industrial Estate (AIE) in Panabo City is expected to be operational by March with hog processors lined up as initial clients.

Ricardo F. Lagdameo, first vice-president of Damosa Land, Inc., which owns and manages the AIE special economic zone, said operations are on track with the construction of the 1,000-square meter facility and it will be ready within the first quarter for various sectors requiring refrigeration.

“This is open to all. First customers will include hog processors,” Mr. Lagdameo said in an online message.

The 63-hectare AIE is located in Panabo City, Davao del Sur and is adjacent to the Davao International Container Terminal, which is also owned by the Anflocor group. — Maya M. Padillo
