Made in the Philippines

Philippines

There’s something about the richness and variety of Filipino cuisine. From the classic Adobo, the creamy goodness of halo-halo, and the sizzle of a plateful of Sisig, it’s clear that food is good when made in the Philippines. In the hopes of elevating the reputation of Filipino cuisine, a number of food companies are taking steps in producing food that benefits more than just the customer.
