Soyah! an alternative source of Protein

- Rhia de Pablo () - December 27, 2006 - 12:00am
Milk has been one of the Filipino's primary sources of protein, but due to the current economic conditions, it has become such an expensive commodity. Seeing this dilemma, Mauna Foods Inc., a budding business enterprise, came up with their contribution to solve this problem. With a variety of products made from fresh soybeans, the company aims to create an alternative source of protein that is affordable and with a handful of health benefits that would specially cater to the underprivileged sector of our community.

Mauna Foods, Inc. was established three years ago. Though still quite young in the industry, it has already reaped several prestigious awards in its field.

It was hailed as the Most Outstanding Soy Milk Manufacturer for the Metro Cebu Awards in the 2005 Philippine Marketing Excellence Awards given by the Philippine Marketing Excellence Awards Institute of Marketing and Entrepreneurship and the Marketing Insights Magazine for undertaking "best marketing practices leading towards market dominance, goodwill, high-level customer confidence, and market acceptability." It has also recently received the 2006 National Product Quality Excellence Awards and the seal of product quality for Soyah! As Best Soy Milk at the Metro Cebu Awards given by the National Product Quality Excellence Awards, National Council for Product and Service Quality and the Consumer's Today Magazine.

Since then, the company has come up with a lot of products, including: Soyah! Soy Milk, Tokwa and Tofu, flavored soy, soy jelly and the recent addition-yummy cookies made of soy that customers have found appetizing when they visited the company's booth during the Beauty, Health and Wellness Show last Sept. 22-24 at the SM City Trade Hall.

The soy trade has become a passion to business partners Peter Go and his cousin Alberto Uy. According to them, "this business is with a heart. We make sure that customers are well taken cared of...we want to contribute to the solution of the problem about the people's living condition by providing the poor man's alternative source of protein for everybody to enjoy and affordable, as well. We are meticulous of the quality of our products and very particular in making them with the use of state-of-the-art machinery."

According to Mr. Go, if there was one thing about their product that sets it apart from the rest, it would be that, "we are trying to bring the freshness of soy without the preservatives. It is a dairy alternative-no fats-and is cholesterol free, rich in anti-oxidants called isoflavone to prevent cancer and good for those who have lactose intolerance."

Soy has a lot of other healthful benefits, and to know more about it, you can visit www.talksoy.com. Soyah! Soy Milk can be bought at your favorite supermarkets all over Metro Cebu; grab one now and enjoy its healthful benefits!
