Under this brand, the country is positioned as Asia’s sought-after sourcing destination for innovative and premium quality food products.

Currently, the Philippines is one of the world’s top exporters of fresh fruits and marine goods. It is also a major supplier of raw ingredients to the USA, Japan, Canada, South Korea, and the Netherlands, accounting for US$307.87 million of agro-based export products in the world.

The Philippines’ food processing sector contributes 50 percent to its country’s total manufacturing output (Global Agricultural Information Network, 2015).
