Sardine maker expands operations


    Mega Global Corp. has launched its Cawit office headquarters, a new state-of-the-art office in Zamboanga, last March 1 as part of its ongoing expansion for Zamboanga operations.

    Mega Global also opened a new ice plant in the city, increasing its production capacity from 300 tons to 450 tons per day and making it one of the largest ice plants in the country.

    The company also opened a can-making plant in Talisayan, doubling its capacity from 750,000 to 1.5 million cans per day.

    Michelle Tiu Lim Chan, Mega Global chief operating officer, said the new Cawit office will serve as the company’s Zamboanga headquarters to ensure seamless integration of its fishing and canning operations, distribution, and marketing. Aside from the main office, housed in Zamboanga are Mega Global’s two internationally-certified, cutting-edge production plants where the trademark 12-hour catching-to-canning process is observed ensuring the freshness of its products.

    The opening of Mega Global’s Cawit office coincides with the lift-off of the three-month sardine fishing ban in the waters of Zamboanga peninsula.

    Mega Global is also investing in its manufacturing facility in Sto. Tomas Batangas, slated to open in February 2022.
