Humble Beginnings

Mekeni Food Corporation began in 1986 as a home-based chicharon and tocino enterprise of husband and wife, Felix M. Garcia & Medicia L. Santos, both public school teachers from barrio Balubad, Porac, Pampanga. But the roots of the business span over two decades earlier, when the couple, assisted by their five sons – Adrian, Pruds, Lito, Doods and Nards, ventured into backyard poultry and piggery to augment the meager family income.

Our History

With a loan and some savings on hand, the family started out with 100 chicken heads, a pen, and two piglets. Their sons, who were still at school back then, also engaged in selling “ice candy” and chicken eggs within the neighborhood and at the nearby palengke (public market) to help save for their studies.

Everyone, especially the boys, had a hand in the business from cleaning the pen, mixing the feeds and to gathering the eggs. At daybreak, the family would be up doing the chores and the boys would get ready to deliver the eggs to the market right before going to school. This became their daily family routine of hard work and practice of responsibility during their younger years. Read More
