8:26:00 PM

Personal Collection (PC), a leading Filipino-owned direct selling company, was recently recognized as one of the 2024 Top 100 Employers for Fresh Graduates in the Philippines by Prosple, a careers and education technology company, solidifying the company’s steadfast commitment to nurturing an inclusive and empowering workplace for every Filipino worker.

PC acknowledges that the modern workforce, comprising Gen Z and Millennials, has evolving needs.

Understanding this need, PC is actively taking strides to better align its work environment with these ideals. The company is committed to fostering inclusivity and embracing technological solutions that contribute to its ongoing efforts to enhance overall employee experience.

“This recognition underscores our dedication to empowering young Filipinos to kickstart their careers and bring the Great Life to their families.

Global Study Reveals URC as Top Choice for Filipino Consumers

10:11:00 PM


Universal Robina Corp.'s (URC) products continue to be popular choices for Filipinos, securing a notable position among consumers' preferred FMCG brands.

In the recent Kantar Brand Footprint study for 2022, Great Taste coffee claimed the fourth spot among the most chosen beverage brands in the Philippines and ranked ninth in the broader category of fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG).

This achievement follows Great Taste coffee's fourth-place position in 2021, with a noteworthy improvement in its FMCG ranking from 15th in the previous year. The consistent favorability highlights URC's success in meeting and maintaining consumer preferences.

The study by influential consulting firm Kantar Group, uses a metric called a “consumer reach point” (CRP), which measures a brand’s strength based on how many shoppers are buying the brand and how often.

Great Taste chalked up 424 million CRPs in 2023 from 283 million in 2022. It was purchased by 75.8 percent of all shoppers and chosen 20 times a year.

The brand also continues to expand its line-up, recently adding the new GT Supreme.

Two other URC products made it to the list of the Philippines’ top 20 food brands.

Piattos was 7th, with 183 million CRPs, the third year in a row that it made it to the list. Nissin, a new entrant, landed in 19th, with 74 million CRPs.

URC’s Great Taste has consistently ranked among the most chosen brands by Filipinos, according to Kantar’s Brand Footprint study.


“Piattos continues to grow as it’s able to reach more shoppers, winning 1.2 million more homes in the past year, especially via sari-sari stores where it recruits more than 80 percent of its buyers,” said Pearl Benjamin, Senior Account Manager for Kantar Worldpanel.

URC’s C2 ready-to-drink tea rose in the ranking in the beverage category from 19th in 2022 to 16th in 2023,

"This study underscores the sustained quality, cost-effectiveness and lasting allure of our brands for consumers," said Mian David, URC’s Chief Marketing Officer. “Delighting people with good food choices has always been our foremost priority.”

She added that the results of the study “demonstrate the resilience and adaptability of our brands”.

URC produces these iconic brands plus others like Maxx candy and Cream-O cookies, which have been part of Filipinos’ lives for decades. One of the country’s largest food and beverage manufacturers, URC also has significant, and growing, presence in ASEAN. Its leading regional brands include Fun-O, Tivoli and Lexus.

Founded in 1992, Kantar spans some 15,300 brands globally in 43 countries. It is the acknowledged global expert in shoppers’ behavior.

Listerine Celebrates the Oral Health Month with 1+1 Deals Only on Shopee

6:59:00 AM

Though we're wearing face masks this pandemic, let us still make sure to have our oral health. Like what Listerine says, 'brushing is not enough.'

When I was in my teenage years, I would usually experience sore throat and bad breath. Bad breath is at least redeemable because I eat a lot of spicy food, but the sore throat is worrisome. So, one of my friends advised me to use Listerine. The forgetful me didn't pay much attention. So, when my sore throat strikes again, that's the time I saw Listerine's commercial and remembered the friend's advice. From then on, I'm a frequent user of Listerine.

Our mouth is the doorway to our stomach with so many activities it gets too many pieces that break down into unwanted bacteria and germs. That's where Listerine helps in killing 99.9% of germs and gives 24-Hour complete mouth defense against germs that cause cavities, plaque, and gum problems. Of course, that is with regular use because brushing alone is not enough. 

If you worry about a sting in your mouth when you use the mouth wash, don't worry, Listerine comes in ZERO alcohol or the no-sting variants.

Today, February 24, as we celebrate Oral Health Month Listerine, will be giving a 1 + 1 deal. Listerine Cool Mint Mouthwash 1L + FREE 750ml and Listerine Total Care Mouthwash 1L + FREE 750ml only at Shopee.

You can check out the Listerine Cool Mint Mouthwash 1L + FREE 750ml Listerine Total Care Mouthwash 1L + FREE 750ml or you can visit the shop in Shopee

6:37:00 AM


A story for our KaTotos out there! Yes, today's news is all about the brand that made your shopping easy and convenient. 

With its string of successful campaigns and relatable social media content, Shopee is the most tweeted e-commerce brand in the country according to Twitter for 2021.

The leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan took the second spot overall in Twitter’s ten most tweeted brands list in the Philippines, which was released as part of the latter’s “Best of Tweets 2021” awards announced on December 14, 2021. The annual rundown aims to celebrate and recognize outstanding brands for their groundbreaking campaigns and engaging digital content.

As we welcome a new year, Shopee will push for excellence and increase engagement satisfaction not only in-app but on other platforms as well. This coming 2022, we will continue to improve our services to better tend to the needs of our consumers, sellers, and brand partners.”

As a platform that prioritizes making online shopping safe, fun, and engaging for everyone, Shopee regularly engages with its users on social media through relatable posts with timely content. During big campaigns, Shopee dominated the Twitter world with the appearance and performance of K-pop idols, which resulted in being in the top trending hashtags locally and nationwide.

Shopee also drives online conversations with the anticipation that comes with its big campaigns, TV commercials with Shopee brand ambassadors, and TV specials where users can win big raffle prizes, watch performances from their favorite celebrities or K-pop idols, and get the best deals and promos they can instantly ‘add to cart’ and check out during the show.

Successful Campaigns such as 9.9 Super Shopping Day and 11.11 - 12.12 Big Christmas Sale Shopee continues to provide convenience and greater cost savings for its consumers with its yearly anticipated double-digit campaigns. The recent Shopee 9.9 Super Shopping Day and 11.11 - 12.12 Big Christmas Sale achieved multiple milestones, including 9.5 million items sold in the first hour of 9.9 in Metro Manila alone, over 270 million plays on Shopee Prize last 11.11, and a 14x surge in Shopee Mall orders during 12.12.

Epson: Enabling Communication with Precise Digital Printing

11:06:00 AM


If you're going to think of it, printing has been around for ages already and every generation it evolves into something more productive than before. So, here's something to read along from Epson as they enable communication with precise digital printing. 

Although printing has been around for centuries, quality reproduction stems from a variety of technological innovations that have come together to deliver today’s high-impact prints. Epson’s strongest advancements in this area include its PrecisionCore MicroTFP printhead and its UltraChrome inks.

Digital printing has enabled the transition from monochrome printing to high-quality color images. The technology for inkjet printing systems has improved dramatically over the past decade, and this is driving full-color printing to new heights. Today’s newest color printers typically use the CMYK color profile, and Epson’s SureColor SC-T5430M wireless printer is one such example.

Designed for technical, engineering, and business graphics, this high-speed device is ideal for blueprints, line drawings, and posters up to 36” wide. It features 2400x1200 dpi print quality and a very competitive price point.

The ongoing proliferation of color inkjet technologies from a wide range of vendors has contributed to the success of suppliers in this segment. Advancements in image quality, color capabilities, and ink technology in technical aqueous devices combined with an ever-growing variety of media have enabled users to produce a wider range of applications.

According to Keypoint Intelligence – InfoTrends’ most recent forecast for wide format technical printers, an estimated 353 million m2 will be produced in the Asia-Pacific region by 2023. This output consists of two primary technical aqueous print applications—CAD for engineering/presentation graphics and GIS for maps. CAD represents an estimated 70% of the volume while GIS printing accounts for about 25%. The remaining 5% includes graphics applications like presentation posters and banners.

While only accounting for a small share of the market, graphics printing opens up some interesting application opportunities that were previously unattainable from a technical printer. The sheet-fed capabilities of smaller devices like Epson’s 24” SureColor SC-T3130X are now used with For Placement Only (FPO) proofing, poster prints, indoor signage, and small Point-of-purchase (POP) graphics in the SOHO environment. Meanwhile, larger roll-fed devices like EPSON’s 36” SureColor SC-T5430M and 44” SC-T7270D are capable of producing larger POP displays and indoor signage. Epson offers a full range of technical printers that can accommodate the needs of home/small offices up through enterprises.

The forecast for Asia-Pacific also indicates that the installed base of 100,000 units in 2018 is expected to grow by 4.3% through 2023. Although most output is produced digitally, this massive installed base indicates that print is still the preferred mechanism for presenting technical and GIS documents. Although some of this print work is handled by in-house or print-for-pay reprographic print facilities, many engineers and architects are investing in technologies that enable them to print high-resolution color drawings in real time.

Epson’s ongoing investments in its product line offer many user-friendly solutions to engineers, architects, and cartographers. The SureColor T-series printers are small footprint devices with full front operation capabilities that make them ideal for placement in the corner of any office. Designed for convenience, the auto switch function enables a seamless transition between roll and cut sheet paper. Additionally, the T-series printers can print and cut printouts without dropping them until they are ready to be collected.

Advancements in secure digital technology continue to occur, fueling the opportunity to print a widening array of technical graphics on a variety of media from a single device. Accommodating print widths from 24” to 44”, Epson’s T-Series line of printers addresses end-users’ needs for fast printing, high resolution, and vivid colors—all without compromising quality!
