Aquino said he asked the company’s head if the provinces that had strawberry farms like Bukidnon, Quezon and Benguet could sustain blueberry and cranberry plantations, and was told they could.

Aquino said the facility would generate billions of pesos in revenues for the government in the next 30 years.
