NutriAsia earns coveted Corporate Award for Excellence in Supply Management Practices

The NutriAsia Corporate Procurement team was celebrated at the 2023 Gawad Sinop Awards for their dedication to sustainability and community empowerment.

MANILA, Philippines – NutriAsia, Inc., one of the leading manufacturers of food products found in every Filipino household, took home the Corporate Award for Excellence in Supply Management Practices at the 2023 Gawad Sinop Awards. This coveted award, presented by the Philippine Institute of Supply Management and the Foundation of the Society of Fellows in Supply Management, celebrates organizations that have demonstrated exceptional dedication and innovation in the field of supply chain management.


NutriAsia’s Corporate Procurement Group was recognized for its efforts in strategic transformation, greenhouse innovation, supplier diversity, and eco-friendly supply chain. One noteworthy innovation is NutriAsia’s strategic partnerships with SMEs since 2020, which expanded its reach to farmers in Bukidnon.


By harnessing the power of greenhouses for the cultivation of bell peppers in collaboration with V&C Agriframs and the Department of Science & Technology (DOST), improved farming techniques were implemented, which not only enhanced the quality and yield of bell peppers but also contributed to the economic growth of local farmers.  Fresh ingredients were also transformed into pickled mixes, significantly extending shelf life and reducing wastage during transportation. Waste was not only minimized but supply chain operations were also streamlined.


Over the past five years, NutriAsia’s sourcing strategy has also undergone a transformative shift toward Direct-to-Farmer Sourcing. Through direct connections, farmers are provided with a secure market, and a transparent system was established where farmers receive valuable feedback and market information, thus optimizing their production and minimizing wastage.


NutriAsia has also actively sought to minimize its environmental impact through an eco-friendly supply chain. By partnering with the largest bottlers in the country, catsup bottles are cleaned and refilled, therefore conserving valuable resources and creating a circular economy, creating new employment opportunities along the way. It also developed practical packaging solutions with the use of second-hand corrugated partitions sourced from carton collectors.


“NutriAsia’s Corporate Procurement Group has always recognized that we, as a company, play a vital role in enhancing the lives of Filipinos. The group’s initiatives on sustainability and community empowerment exemplify their utmost commitment to always keep this responsibility in mind with all the responsible business practices being created today and in the future,” said Genevieve Santiago, Procurement Head of NutriAsia, Inc.
