The company also reaffirmed its dedication of giving back to communities through sustainable progress.
“We are truly grateful for the support we have received over the past 50 years and we are excited to continue this mission for many more years to come,” said AGC’s founder and general manager Marlito Uy. “As we reach this major milestone, we have a range of exciting initiatives planned to mark this special day, including corporate social activities, community programs and sustainable solutions. We are also committed to further improving our malls and customer experiences, ensuring our customers have the best shopping and leisure experiences.”
AGC is a highly diversified and integrated retail, tourism, commercial and agro-industrial conglomerate in Bohol. It owns Island City Mall, Marcela Farms Inc., South Palms Resort Panglao, Leonardo Distributors Inc., Bohol Tech Voc Inc., North Zen Villas Panglao and the recently launched Panglao Shores, a P25 billion mix-used resort town in a 57-hectare property.
In 2022, the company said it made significant contributions in its various business units.
AGC made significant progress in its operations, such as the recent opening of the third Marcela Farms Feedmill, highlighting food security and sustainable practices.
Considered among Asia’s few large-scale feed mills, it serves the dietary requirements of all Marcela Farms’ livestock and aqua operations while utilizing efficient waste management. The farm is the primary source of livestock for Alturas Malls, providing consistent and high quality produce for Bohol, Cebu and other areas.
AGC also opened Fixrite Hardware-Panglao, which provides jobs and quality yet affordable construction materials to the public. It offers a wide range of products, including simple hand tools for repair needs, plumbing, construction and electrical supplies, serving as a one-stop shop for all hardware needs. Located in Barangay Bolod, the store is just a few kilometers away from the Bohol Panglao Island International Airport, making it easily accessible to customers.
As for its corporate social responsibility, AGC donated P200,000 to 20 breast cancer patients (P10,000 each) during Breast Cancer Awareness Month as part of its Pink Run for a Cause marathon attended by 1,600 runners last year.
Also during the anniversary of Alturas Mall in Tagbilaran City on Nov. 24, the group mounted a range of activities like a talent competition for its mall employees and an inter-school dance competition.
It also conducted “A day with the PWD Angels,” an outreach program for deaf and mute children of Tagbilaran City. The activities included a free clinic, talent contest, art workshop, lunch, gift-giving and talent presentations.
AGC said this year, the company is committed to creating meaningful and impactful experiences for its customers as it vows to be a part of its ongoing commitment to strategic, sustainable progress in Bohol and in the Visayas region.
AGC is set to open two more Colonnade Shopping malls within Metro Cebu to support Cebu’s growing retail needs. The planned expansion is also part of the company’s effort to firm up its presence in Cebu.
AGC has two existing Colonnade malls located on Colon St. in Cebu City and one in Mandaue City.
