Boasting of an outstanding 130-year legacy, Lee Kum Kee has become an international household name and a symbol of quality and trust, spicing up kitchens across the globe with its celebrated sauces and condiments.
Acting as an envoy of the company, Lee Kum Kee’s Panda Mascot has been jetsetting around the world and visiting various countries to share his love for sauces and to bring awareness to the brand. She’s already visited the United States, Hong Kong, Australia, and Malaysia. The most recent stop on her busy schedule is none other than the Philippines.
To make sure she knew where to go to, Lee Kum Kee’s Panda Mascot was accompanied by the brand’s other ambassador, supermom Karla Estrada. Mumshie Karla brought along the Panda Mascot to Manila’s must-see tourist spots and of course, enjoyed delectable delights along the way.
Lee Kum Kee’s Panda Mascot also held a meet and greet with Filipinos who shared the same love for Oyster Sauce and Chinese cuisine. The event, dubbed as “Panda Rito, Panda Roon”, had both the Panda Mascot and Mumshie Karla gamely taking selfies with fans and engaging the sizable crowd who couldn’t get enough of the lovable pair. Lee Kum Kee also held a social media contest to coincide with the event. Participants just needed to post their selfies online with the following hashtags #3secretstolevelupsarap #LKKPandaTour #LeeKumKeePHand they had a chance to win cool prizes courtesy of Lee Kum Kee.
Lee Kum Kee first entered the Philippine market with Sysu International Inc as the sole distributor back in the 1980s and has since been one of the trailblazers in the industry, furthering its efforts to promote Chinese culinary culture, and nurturing future local culinary talents.
