Di lang po sa China yan..Indonesia anf Thailand are also manufacturing pinoy brand food. example: Maggie Instant Noodles made in Indonesia...Buko juice made in Thailand. Marami pang products.
mas mura mag-manufacture sa ibang bansa kesa satin.. i think its as simple as that.
and mind you, these countries employ Filipino QC Inspectors/Engineers so I don't think anyone can blame the pinoy-made quality.
I am not God, I will not even "attempt" to stop globalization. I am here sharing information that it is not impossible to avoid made in China food.
I only hope that ordinary customers can make "informed choices."
And food lang po, the Philippines is an agricultural country. We can do this. See the threads/news items that threatens our own farmers and poultry owners? We have what it takes to provide for our own food.
The Philippines has the highest electricity rate in Asia, red tape, corruption, not really investor friendly...
Reality check. Companies always look at their bottom line.
Now, if we could fix those problems above, then we might see the manufacturing sector bounce back.

Thread Update: Apart from food I'll include medicines, beauty products, toiletries, personal care etc... things that can hurt our health.
We have a choice.
Philippine Made Beauty Products, Personal Care
1. Lamoiyan Corporation - Happee Toothpaste, Gumtech Toothpaste, Kutitap Toothpaste
2. Zest-O Corporation - Beam Toothpaste
3. Splash Manufacturing Corporation - Skin White Whitening Soap, Skin White Bath Soap, Skin White Lotions, Maxi-peel, Kolours
If a product is not available locally, the better choice is to buy from Philippine friendly countries.
1. Thailand is a friend and an ally of the United States.
2. Indonesia is our closest ASEAN friend. They helped us in our Islamic terrorist problems. They helped us with our problems with Malaysia (who supports rebels). They even made moves against China regarding Chinese abuses in the West Philippine Sea.
3. Vietnam is now friendly with us.

^I don't think that will even make a dent. It will, on the other hand create more problems. Goods are now more expensive as raw materials will be sourced from other countries.
If only we can make labor as cheap as China, create factories to manufacture many items, we can be self dependent and other countries will buy from us or set up their own factory here instead of China.
Otherwise, if we can't do this sacrifice, nothing will happen.
And lahat ng expansion na 'to, nagre-report pa rin sa URC Philippines.
this is what you get for voting incompetent people in power... democracy huh!!!
ah basta, iwas ako sa anything with "made-in-china" labeled products...
"Di kaya sa manufacturer nagmumula ang quality control at hindi sa distributor or retailer? Common sense.
manufacturer merely supplies what is asked for by the local distributor.
Made in China does not necessarily mean BAD QUALITY. world class quality can be had. as long as people are willing to pay. but alas. the filipino people refuses to pay a premium on quality, forcing local importers to order only the minimum standard in order to sell and make a living locally.
refusing to buy a product because it says "made in china" is just pure ignorance and frankly impossible. mas gusto mo pa yung sabihin ng nagbenta sa inyo, "made in japan or taiwan." when in reality you're being lied to because almost none exists anymore.
Kung wala na talagang choice, pwede naman bumili ng imported.
Hindi naman yayaman bigla ang Pilipinas kung bibili ako ng tsinelas or shoes na made in Marikina, or shampoo na local kesa made in Thailand, pero magaan sa loob at masarap ang feeling na meron kang ginagawa kahit maliit na paraan, para maka tulong sa mga industriya dito sa Pilipinas.
Mas locally produced or manufactured or cultivated sa area ko, mas OK sa akin. Poultry, seafoods na harvested sa area namin, sa talipapa or town market bili, or suka sa Paombong, mga local sweets, locally made peanut butter, loaf bread sa neighborhood bakery, etc.
wala bibile pa din ako ng made in China mas mura yun, wala na kayong magagawa dyan. tsaka unti nalang ang Philippine made products dahil yung mga dating manufacturing factories dito eh warehousing at repacking na lang ang ginagawa, gaya ng nestle, kimberly clark, at mga gumagawa ng shampoo at sabon. kuryente at high labor cost talaga problema dito.
Why will choosing Jollibee over Mc Donald's and Hapee Toothpaste over Maxam Toothpaste create more problems?
We have a choice.
