Jake Zepeda started this petition to Jollibee Food Corporation Management

With the implementation of Rice Tarrification Law (RTL), the local rice farmers are suffering with the sharp decline in palay farm gate price. This rainy harvest season had some farmers forced to sell at 8 Pesos per kilo their wet palay. Before the RTL, farmers could sell their palay (dry) to 17 pesos up to 22 (long grain varieties). On the average our rice farmers need a farm gate price of 12 pesos to break even from a 4-month planting duration. We believe that companies like Jollibee Food Corporation can make a difference in alleviating the suffering of our local farmers. Jollibee (and Mang Inasal) can do this by only serving locally produced rice bought directly from Pinoy farmers and farmers cooperative.
