​Not in Jollibee menu

This is in reference to the column item written by Mr. Rey Arcilla titled “Digong by a Landslide,” which was published on March 29,2016 in page B-4. 

In the article, it stated that “Another bad news for Digong’s opponents… Billionaire Tony Tan Caktiong, who is from Davao and is the owner of the now world famous fast food chain Jollibee, has just declared his support for the Davao Mayor! With the millions of loyal Jollibee customers around the country, Tan Caktiong’s endorsement is certainly a tremendous boost to Hizzoner Duterte’s winning ways.”

This statement is inaccurate and misleading.

Tony Tan Caktiong, founder and chairman of Jollibee, and the company are apolitical and as such, do not endorse any political candidate, organization or agenda. 

But Mr. Caktiong and the company are all for fair, clean and honest elections in May 2016. – PAULINE ROXAS-CHUA LAO, Corporation Communications, Jollibee Foods Corporation
