  11. Hello Ms.Cristina,

    How do you do?

    I am Noami Jess, a graduating college student. I just wanna ask if it is just okay to use malunggay ice cream, tea and bread as the subject of my feasibility study?

    Are these products already available in the market?If yes, where??

    Your reply would be very much appreciated.

    Best Regards,

    Noami Jess

    • hi naomi:

      These products are already available although not in large quantity. I know there is a group of students here in cebu who won a contest a year or two ago and they started to sell it in their school. I just don’t know if it is still available now. about malunggay tea, there a lot of small and big companies making these. malunggay bread, i know it is available here in cebu and in other places.

      • THANK U ms.cristina..:)
