Yes, there are date palm trees here in the Philippines and some are bearing fruits. In fact our company pursues the development of the date palm industry in General Santos City, and we are fully supported by Philippine Government agencies. FYI, we have developed a new line of dates-enriched beverages, one among them is the Date CoLa, now a registered trademark in Saudi Arabia, UAE and the Philippines.
