Fresh Start Leads Movement For An Organic Negros

Want to live a healthy life? Everyone wants to live one and one of the ways to do is to go organic. Negros Island, with the oversight of its two provincial governments, has pushed forward an organic farming program that has been tagged as the most successful in the country, solidifying the Island’s claim to the title as the “Organic Food Bowl of Asia.” Fresh Start, young company owned by a young couple, Ramon, Jr. and Francine Uy, has led the growing movement from the private sector more than half a decade already.

Fresh Start initially started only with a less than a hectare organic vegetable and herb farm in Silay City that became the best sell among signature restaurants in Bacolod, Cebu and Manila. While the fresh organic farm greens continue to be Fresh Start’s main products, they also ventured in producing personal care and home care products made from organic products without the chemicals and additives. From hair to toe, Fresh Start continues to make innovations and letting people know that beauty is best with natural.

Fresh Start’s coffee selections are also a hit when their Mt. Kanlaon Blend made it to Food Magazine’s Top 5 Best list and the newly launched Hacienda Estate Grown Coffee set to soar in sales. The coffee line of Fresh Start is not merely to promote organic but also to help the struggling Philippine coffee industry that has only been revived recently in Negros. Artisanal products have arisen from the demand for coffee with the company establishing its first store in Robinsons Citywalk in Bacolod serving coffee with hot piayas.

For those who missed Fresh Start and the Negros Trade Fair, Fresh Start will be joining a coffee trade show this Wednesday on the Greenbelt 5 grounds. They will be selling and serving the same products sold at the Negros Trade Fair. Despite Fresh Start’s great successes, they are willing to share their technological innovations to advance the Philippine organic industry. For your inquiries, you may reach them through email at or call their Bacolod Main Office Number at (6334) 441-14-90.
