MISAMIS OCCIDENTAL (PIA)--Famous across the municipalities of Calamba and Plaridel, Misamis Occidental, Cristy Pasalubong Food Products, owned by Cristina ‘Cristy’ D. Fuentes, is a business that started from an ‘inun-unan’ (stewed fish) recipe made by her father, Teofilo Descallar.
Locals nicknamed him ‘Nono’ from its inverted word, ‘on-on’.
Later, when they found out that the bottled inun-unan was not available in Luzon and Visayas, Ms. Cristy and her husband decided to borrow P10,000 from the First Community Cooperative (FICCO) to formally start their own business in 2016.
They flourished in 2020, when Cristy joined and graduated from the Kapatid Mentor Me (KMME-MME) online batch.
From their humble beginnings, through perseverance and assistance from various government agencies, including the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Cristy Pasalubong Food Products has already produced 19 products, ranging from bottled fish products to spreads and banana chips, available and distributed nationwide.
One may buy their products through the following outlets: Clarin House of Suman, Clarin, Misamis Occidental, Ria Thrifty Mart, Ozamiz City, Red Cherry Bakery, Don Anselmo Bernad, Ozamiz City, Red Cherry Bakery, Capistrano, Ozamiz City, Gabs Bakeshop, Banadero, Ozamiz City, Jofems Bakeshop, Laurel Street, Ozamiz City, Kinny’s Bakeshop, Gomez Street, Ozamiz City, J-Mart Supermarket, Jimenez, Jimenez Pasalubong Center, D'Hermanos Cakes and Pasalubong, Tangub City, Asenso Global Gardens, Hoyohoy, Tangub City, and Villa Pablea Mountain Resort Pasalubong Center, Tolon, Rizal.
