Good morning, Ka-FERNmilya!
When I joined the FERN Organization more than a decade ago, I knew that I was about to embark on a challenging yet noble journey. Though difficult at the start, I was able to lead the company from near bankruptcy to a profitable business, employing over a hundred and proudly developing quality products for the benefit of all Filipinos.
The risk has paid off and now we are on our way towards the next big dream—to conquer the Global market. FERN started out as a multi-level marketing company with only 6 employees. Back then, we already shared a vision of making world-class quality health and wellness products accessible to all. Despite setbacks, FERN continued to grow into a thriving, multi-million Peso company - expanding to both network marketing and traditional retail.
The introduction of FERN-C to the Philippine Market back in November 2004 is a testament to our commitment. Distributed through traditional retail in 2013, FERN-C has become the #1 Sodium Ascorbate Vitamin C in the Philippines.
Through the following years, FERN, Inc. has fearlessly continued to create brands with their own unique benefits targeted at specific age groups. We launched FERN-C kidz and FERN Kiddimin to help promote children’s wellness, and FERN Flex, a joint health supplement, for adults. We also made coffee healthier with FERN Coffee, adding vitamins and minerals to the usual 3-in-1 mix, thus making your coffee “coffee-licously healthy”. All of these products possess the same uncompromising quality which made our flagship brand, FERN-C, highly successful.
As FERN, Inc. continues to develop health-promoting, better-quality products in the coming years, we know we are a step closer to making our mark as a renowned Filipino company— a leader in the retail consumer health industry.
Looking back and being able to witness how FERN grew from its humble beginnings to the company it is today makes me feel honored to lead this corporate family.
Our journey has just begun . . .
