A: Yes! There are no “meat” drinks, so you should be fine. Unless you intend to sell “pork shakes”, then no.

Q: Why a Forest Food Fair?
A: We are down to 24% of our original forests. The Forest Food Fair will supplement the 3 Green Bill march to fill peoples minds, as well as their tummies, with information regarding how important our natural forests are to us.

Forests aren’t just a group of trees: they have culinary, cultural, scientific, recreational, hydrological, and ecological significance to humanity. And ours, in the Philippines, are not only unique; they are greatly prized by the scientific, political, and corporate sectors. It’s about time the general public prized them as well by pushing for the passing of the Forest Resources Bill, the National Land Use Act, and the Alternative Minerals Management Bill!
