Integrated Dairy Processing

MPAV also engaged LR Group to expand its existing dairy business. Earlier in 2022, MPIC began its foray into the dairy industry by partnering with the Carmen’s Best Group to further develop and expand the operations of its dairy farm and dairy products manufacturing facilities, by entering into an agreement to acquire a 51% interest in The Laguna Creamery, Inc. MPAV will construct a dairy farm facility in Bay, Laguna, where it plans to annually produce at least 6 million liters of milk. Operations are estimated to commence by late 2025 to early 2026.


The Carmen’s Best Group is behind the Philippine-grown premium ice cream brand, Carmen’s Best Ice Cream, and the country’s only locally pasteurized and homogenized fresh milk, Holly’s Milk. It operates a dairy farm where it also produces artisanal cheese under the Carmen’s Best Natural Cheese and Holly’s brands.
