The MPC Founder, Ricardo Buenaventura tearfully recounted how Gov. Yap helped the Coop back when he was Department of Agriculture Secretary when he gave them just one (1) portable rice miller and ideas on how to process, package and brand their rice and now they are making millions while the MPC is worth more than 1 billion pesos in assets. That first portable miller is still operational today.
