Homegrown fast food Binalot shows Pinoy resiliency amid new normal

Homegrown Filipino Fast food Binalot is showing its characteristic Pinoy resilience amid the challenges of the new normal in business brought on by the COVID 19 pandemic.

Binalot noted how the public health emergency particularly affected the restaurant industry as it completely redefined how we order our food, have it packaged and delivered, and even the way we dine out, if ever.

Various community quarantine guidelines have been implemented by the Inter-Agency Task Force related to safety and health protocols during the past four months. And everybody has to comply, for this is the new normal.

Binalot’s “new normal” taps services on wheels for continued business strength and COVID-19 front liner meal assistance

By Randy  July 21, 2020
The onslaught of the Corona Virus Disease 2019 or COVID-19 has rocked the country down to the core, claiming lives and challenging the Philippine economy. With a situation as serious as this, the Philippine government had to put the nation under all kinds of quarantine levels to mitigate the spread of the virus, as much as it could.

The result of this is a drastic change in almost all of the forces that move the Philippine economy prior to COVID-19, and this includes food and restaurant businesses. Under quarantine, many dining establishments have temporarily stopped operations or have resorted to alternative means of keeping their business afloat with safety precautions in mind. One of these food establishments which have chosen to carry on is Binalot, a popular fast food brand known for serving hearty Pinoy meals packaged in banana leaves.

With no time to waste, Binalot had immediately adjusted its operations in order to adapt to the so-called “new normal” ways of doing food business. Among these is the introduction of shuttle service provisions for its crew, which is a safer alternative to using public transport.

EVAP, Binalot feed DOTr frontliners

In this war against the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), we really need all hands on deck. Aside from the healthcare workers who are at the forefront of saving the lives of the COVID-19 patients, there are also other frontliners who are doing their part amid the pandemic.

There are the military and police personnel who enforce the enhanced community quarantine, the social workers, local government unit and barangay personnel who bring food packs to the depressed areas, and the grocery and pharmacy crew who ensure that we get our basic needs.

And finally, somebody has to make sure these other frontliners get to and from their workplaces safely and on time — the transport people who shuttle all these other frontliners to and from their residences to their workplace.

The Department of Transportation (DOTr) has organized drivers and conductors, police escorts, military escorts, LTO, LTFRB and I-ACT personnel to provide free shuttles for frontliners, primarily healthcare workers for them to get to their proper destinations.

The DOTr made several transport schemes catering to medical frontliners during the implementation of the enhanced community quarantine  in Luzon. The schemes cover Metro Manila and suburbs, extending to and from destinations that include Cavite, Laguna, Rizal and Bulacan.

KEEPING true to its core values, Filipino fast food chain Binalot has been very busy since the enhanced community quarantine was implemented Luzon-wide on March 17 by President Rodrigo Duterte. Binalot Operations Manager Judee Morente says that free meal packages have been sent and will continue to be sent to hospitals and medical facilities in Metro Manila for health care workers serving as frontliners in the war against Covid-19. “For these modern-day heroes, Binalot can do no less,” she explains.

Binalot Fiesta Foods has always had a heart for corporate social initiatives. Since it put in place its Dahon Program in 2006, Binalot has always been concerned with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDG), particularly SDG 1 which aims for No Poverty and SDG 2 which targets Zero Hunger. Binalot’s Dahon Program has adopted a community in Nagcarlan, Laguna to supply its banana leaves with which to wrap its products for serving and recently even trained them on doable livelihood projects like the production of salted eggs, another Binalot staple food.

Cristina Martinez, Binalot marketing manager adds that in times of crisis like today where ready-to-eat meals are needed, Binalot has always been ready to heed the nation’s call.
