Universal Robina Corporation announced that its (URC) Thai subsidiary has clinched Thailand’s “FDA Quality Award for Year 2020”– the only Filipino company to receive this distinction in the food category.

In a statement, the firm said URC (Thailand) Co. Ltd. was recognized for its use of efficient systems to manufacture safe and high-quality products.

It was also lauded for implementing socially responsible projects and prioritizing safety and quality for its consumers.

URC-Thailand produces many of the brands that its parent company is known for in the Philippines, plus others that are distinct to markets in South East Asia.  These include Jack ‘n Jill Fun-O, Tivoli, Roller Coaster, Cream-O, Dewberry, Lausanne, Dynamite and Lush.

“Receiving this award is one of the company’s successes, as providing safe and quality products to our consumers is a collaboration of everyone in the organization,” said URC Quality Assurance and Quality Management System manager Boonyarat Chunet. He added that, “We will stay committed and plans to further uplift the quality system of our organization to bring it to the next level.”
