ANI traces its humble beginnings in 1997 as a trader of post-harvest agricultural machineries that help improve the productivity and income of rural Filipino farmers. Formerly known as Mabuhay 2000 Enterprises, Inc., it eventually diversified into various agro-commercial businesses and has become one of the country’s top fresh mango exporters to the world markets.
At present, ANI serves the fresh needs of the leading retail & key institutional accounts in the country, and also supplies homegrown fruits such as banana, sweet pineapple and papaya to customers in the Greater China Region, Japan, Korea, and the Middle Eastern, European, and North American Regions.
The company also engages in the manufacture and distribution of fruit beverages and puree, dried fruit snacks, processed fruit mix, frozen fruits & vegetables, dairy and rice products. ANI’s family of brands now includes FCA (Fresh Choice Always) for fresh and processed wellness food products; La Natural for coconut juice and Nikka for mango nectar and tamarind juices, all of which are exported; Sungrown rice; Superfresh and Big Chill for fresh fruit beverages and dessert kiosks; Canecoctions for sugar cane juice; Chantilly for desserts; and Cafeteria Verde, Fresh Bar by Big Chill, and C’Verde by Big Chill for healthy snack bar and cafeteria. It has also entered into a master license agreement with Tully’s Coffee International PTE LTD to operate Seattle’s famous Tully’s coffee shop in the Philippines.
These are all made possible through the operational integration of its four major divisions: Farming, Manufacturing, Distribution, and Retail & Franchise.
