Company

DARLING FOOD PRODUCTS has started its operation way back in 1986. With a capital of only P 150.00, Mrs. Aileen Tello Lazo, the owner, was able to produce only 3 kilograms of chorizo for a day and tried to sell them to her neighbors and friends. Fortunately those people loved the taste of her chorizo and started receiving orders from her friend's friend and neighbor's neighbor. In 1988, during the midst of strike of the suppliers in Ororama Supercenter, the purchaser of the said store invited her to display her products. Through this, it made her once-a-month production turned to a daily production. This prompted Mrs. Lazo to give a name for her chorizo products. Thus, Darling Food Products is born. It was named "Darling" for it resembles the amiable, sweetness and friendly character of Mrs. Lazo, which undeniably earned the heart and stomach of its consumers.

Continuous blessings unceasingly poured in to Darling Food Products. The business is growing and the number of its consumers still increasing. It was then that Mrs. Lazo decided to add some of its products such as pork tocino, beef chorizo, beef tocino, chicken tocino, bacon, corned beef and longanisa. Just recently, the company has just market their newly developed products, which are the Chorizo de Oro, Premium Meaty Hotdog, Longaniza de Oro, Ham and the seasonal ham which includes pear shape ham, fiesta ham and brick ham.
