Filipino Food In the News

On the butter, margarine and cheese (BMC) issue, San Miguel wins in court against Ramar Foods, the USA company that pirated the Magnolia brand from the Philippines.

Despite that victory on the BMC issue, San Miguel is still prohibited by United States law from using the Magnolia brand name for ice cream and related frozen dessert products in the United States.

Any “Magnolia ice cream” you see in the USA is not produced by the company from the Philippines. It is the OMGpeke version manufactured by Ramar Foods of California.

To add to the ludicrousness of the situation, a representative of this OMGpeke company Ramar Foods registered “Filipino Food Movement” as a corporation in California in August 2015.

There are very few international news stories that mention Filipino food, compared to other cuisines. Here are recent articles from an automatically generated feed.
