About Us

How It All Started

It all started when I bought smoked fish in Bataan as a gift for a couple of my friends. I typically buy from a small community of “Tinapa” makers in Balanga Bataan. It was one time when a couple of my friends asked me if they can just buy from me as they liked how it tasted so fresh and good. Transporting the fish became a challenge on how to keep it fresh when I travel back to Manila from Bataan so I thought maybe I should vacuum seal them. So together with a friend, we ventured into the Tinapa business producing and also sourcing from communities freshly smoked and marinated fish from the Capital of Tinapa, Bataan.
