3rd Pinoy Herbal Festival


Much debate continues about the effectiveness of herbs as medicine. Some doctors argue that while its remedies can be useful in treating some ailments, they are very limited, particularly when it comes to treating more serious diseases.

Do we encourage the development and wider use of herbal medicines? And homeopathic remedies, as well as acupuncture, yoga, fasting, raw vegetable juices, massage, peace of mind, meditation, exercise and other natural therapies? FACT: HERBS ALONE DO NOT RESTORE AND MAINTAIN HEALTH, no matter how wisely used. This is because the body is a complicated machine which relies on other things as well to keep it going.


Do we as Filipino citizens continue to institutionalize this form of health care and capitalize on the abundant supply of indigenous plants with medicinal properties in our country? When, what and how do we use herbs? Do we believe in the medicinal values of herbs?


If yes, then join us as we celebrate the Power of Natural Healing on the 3rd Pinoy Herbal Festival, November 19 to 21, 2010 at the AANI Herbal Garden and Livelihood Center, Quezon Memorial Center, Quezon City.


Agri Aqua Network International Inc. (AANI) will organize the festival in cooperation with supporters and partners who believe in the power of natural healing which includes herbs and our indigenous plants. (Culinary herbs will also be highlighted).


Should you want to be our supporter/partner in this campaign, please call: 0918-800-1728 / (02) 497-2755.

French Pavilion exhibit at the Agri-Link expo 2010

Belmont Agriculture Corporation a French based company  which has been in the forefront of the industry for over 35 years. Belmont marketing manager Tony Magno said they will be displaying their modern tunnel ventilation system which uses fiberglass cone fans installed at one end of the house and large openings at the opposite end. The improved air quality removes excess heat, moisture, dusts, odors and harmful gases like carbon dioxide and ammonia, providing the birds with more free oxygen.

Belmont’s tunnel ventilation system lowers the temperature in the poultry house through evaporative cooling. The decrease in humidity helps keep the animals comfortable so they can eat more and grow faster. The birds are more healthy and will require less medication.

Magno said they customize each tunnel ventilation system, depending on the environment of the farm. He added that Belmont’s tunnel ventilation system lessens land area requirements, providing higher bird stock density by at least 35 percent more. One satisfied user of Belmont’s tunnel ventilation system is San Miguel Foods, Inc. which became more profitable after adopting the system.
