First Atkins Holdings Corp. (FAHC), the parent company of one of the leading figures in the wholesale and retail meat industry in the Philippines, has announced its significant expansion by acquiring additional lots within AyalaLand Logistics Holdings Corp.’s (ALLHC) Cavite Technopark. Launched in 2015, Cavite Technopark is ALLHC’s second industrial park in the bustling industrial corridor of the country, the CALABARZON region. With its strategic location in Naic, Cavite, and close proximity to international gateways, including the Cavite Gateway Terminal and Sangley Airport, Cavite Technopark provides excellent accessibility and connectivity to businesses.

FAHC is a key player in the Philippine meat industry, supplying major traditional and modern trade channels, hotels, restaurants, meat shops, commissaries, and meat traders across Luzon, and is further expanding its reach in the south of Metro Manila, Cavite, Laguna, and the rest of Region IV and Region V. Annually, they distribute over 120,000 metric tons of quality, affordable meat like pork, chicken, and beef. They are able to do so with a fleet of over 150 trucks, and a workforce of over 900.

FAHC’s facility in Cavite Technopark is one of the biggest continuous cold storage warehouses in the Philippines, and is the biggest in South Luzon.

Their facility within Cavite Technopark, officially inaugurated in March 2023, is one of the largest continuous cold storage warehouses in the Philippines, and is the largest in South Luzon. The facility alone currently operates with a workforce of 180 individuals.

Emphasizing its commitment to sustainability, the facility incorporates renewable energy sources, boasting of 1,078 solar panels. This augments the facility’s energy requirements and significantly reduces carbon emissions, aligning with broader environmental objectives.

“We are delighted to welcome First Atkins Group’s expansion within Cavite Technopark,” says Robert S.

Gabriel J. Ang, president and CEO of FAHC, expressed that the company has considered Cavite Technopark’s advantageous location, especially with the upcoming Bataan–Cavite Interlink Bridge, which is set to revolutionize regional transportation, cutting travel time from four to five hours to 45 minutes. He conveyed enthusiasm about leveraging Cavite Technopark’s strategic benefits to further the company’s goal of delivering high-quality meat products to Filipino consumers. Additionally, he emphasized the importance of addressing market demand discrepancies and aligning with government food safety initiatives.
