Laoag City – The Worldwide Marketing Organization (WMO) and Prestigious Marketing, Communication and Culture (PMCC) professionals from America and Europe has nominated Flowers and Crafts by Genevieve (FCG) for the Golden Medal for Quality and Service Award 2014.

FCG owner and Laoag councilor Sonia B. Siazon received the official nomination letter from WMO-CEO Arturo Unda.

The award is granted every year to companies and professionals that have achieved outstanding performance due to the quality of their products and services.

This international recognition has been created to stimulate the growth of companies and professionals that in spite the difficulty of the world’s economic and financial processes have maintained high levels of quality in their products and professionalism in their services.

Ms. Siazon, for her part, expressed her gratitude to all the board of directors and other people behind this prestigious award as it gives chance to companies and professionals who exerted much effort to bring their products and services to international quality.

The lady legislator and businessperson said that this is now on the fifth international recognition given to the FCG from the different organizations of the world.

The multi-awarded FCG produces different kind of flower arrangements made from fresh flowers but focuses more on organic materials such as dried leaves.

Ms. Siazon strongly believes that the biggest factor FCG was recognized is because of her 27 employees who are persons with disabilities from Laoag.

Aside from this, she also introduced her products to the inmates at the Bureau of Jail and Penology (BJMP) and Ilocos Norte Provincial Jail (INPJ) as one of their livelihood programs.

This business aims to help people who are less fortunate to earn, she said.

According to her, she never expected any people from the WMO and PMCC to inform her about their visit but she only learned that they came over to visit and validate her establishment when they called her up for the said award.

What is good, Ms. Siazon said, is that the award will be sent through international delivery service in the Philippines and to be handled personally in a private ceremony of WMO in the country.

It was learned that the awarding ceremony will be held in Paris any time before the end of the year.


Ms. Siazon said that the award is not for herself but for the people she helps for employment and the city of Laoag as well.
