MANILA, Philippines — A group of hog farmers will attempt to set a Guinness World Record for the most number of pork dishes on display, which will be served during the organization’s festival in Quezon City and Marikina from March 1 to 5.

National Federation of Hog Farmers Inc. (NatFed) vice president Alfred Ng said the first three days of the festival would take place at Novotel Hotel and Gateway Mall in Cubao.

The culminating event, with a Backyard Congress, will be held at the Marikina Convention Center on March 5.

“Our organization aims to promote the interests of the agriculture sector by promoting food security and safety. With the hog festival, we also hope to boost Philippine tourism by highlighting our rich culinary tradition of serving pork dishes,” Ng said.

He said through the festival, hog producers would be able to tie up with institutional markets such as restaurants and hotels to lessen their dependence on imported pork.

“The initiative will also promote Quezon City as a food tourism destination, serving sumptuous and unique pork dishes,” Ng said.

Samahang Industriya ng Agrikultura executive director and NatFed consultant Jayson Cainglet said the move would be replicated all over the country.

Quezon City Business Permits and Licensing Department head Margie Santos lauded the hog farmers for initiating the project to help boost the local pork industry.
