Foodsphere observes 45 years of championing family mealtimes


    Meals are an important part of any Filipino family. It is during over the dining table that everyone gets together and talk while partaking in the food prepared for them. A good meal makes for a great time together with family.

    This was what prompted Mrs. Corazon Dayro Ong to develop her own take on household staples. Wanting to provide better food to her children and to help her neighbors earn a living this nutritionist-dietitian, along with her husband Jose De Jesus Ong, started a small backyard business which has now become a household name – CDO Foodsphere.

    The Company’s history is filled with victories over challenges that tried their resilience over time. Nevertheless, 45 years after being nurtured by Pepe and Cora Ong, CDO has now grown tremendously, with over 15 brands that are either category leaders or major challengers in the food industry. The husband-and-wife tandem has delivered amazing creations, and laid down the foundations of one of the country’s leading food manufacturers.

    As the company reached its 45-year milestone, CDO Foodsphere reaffirms its commitment and its roots while bringing itself into the modern times with a new look. The new logo was thoughtfully conceptualized, to represent the elements of what CDO as a company stands for – and that is bringing meaningful mealtimes to families, here and abroad.

    The new emblem uses the elements of a family platter, surrounded by a fluid illustration of a spoon and fork that surrounds the platter – truly a strong visual hold for the Company Mission, which is to “champion mealtimes and unite families through food that calls them home.”

    This new mark connects the generations of Filipinos who have enjoyed CDO products for almost half a century now. At the same time, it reminds us of the promises that every product deliver – good, nutritious and affordable meals.

    “We are here for the Filipino family,” says Jerome D. Ong, CDO President & CEO, “we are staying true to our promise and we will continue what our founders have started in 1975.

    We will continue to inspire Filipinos through the stories of our parents, Pepe and Cora Ong and we will pursue with passion their desire to help every family through food.”
