Who we are
At RoniB's Kitchen, we bring to you the bold and complex flavours of the Philippines. Our products are lovingly recreated from family recipes and my own memories of home. Made with the best local and Southeast Asian ingredients, our products are all-natural and free from artificial flavourings, colourings and preservatives.
We aim to take you on a culinary journey through the flavours of the Philippines, where great food shared with the family is the highlight of any meal.
In 2021, we have been awarded the Great Taste Producer seal, and we now hold 8 Gold Stars at the Great Taste Awards from 2019 to 2023.
Label Design With A Tale:
Our Original Label Designs
We wanted a label that is unique to our products and tells a tale about us. We wanted it to reflect our origin and our heritage and with the help of Natt Boarer from our manufacturing partner, Chilli Mash Co, we were able to achieve this.
The image at the centre of all our product labels shows Luzon, the largest of the three main islands of the Philippines. This is the island where Roni hails from, but specifically, the Ilocos region, which is on the northern part.
The pattern that fills the image of Luzon honours the tribal prints of the Igorot and Ifugao people who live in the Ilocos Region, the region of Roni’s birth.
As Jose Rizal, our national hero, says, “He who does not know how to look back at where he came from will never get to his destination.”
Our label honours heritage and tradition with an outlook for the future.
Our Labels Have Evolved
Our new label design is a tribute to the rich tapestry of flavors, ingredients, and the enchanting island features of the Philippines.
Embracing Vibrant Colors and Imagery
Our label transformation is a celebration of colors that mirror the vibrancy of Filipino cuisine and culture. From the lush green landscapes to the azure waters that surround the islands, every label is now a canvas of vibrant hues. These colors aren't just eye-catching; they embody the passion and warmth that we infuse into every product.
Reflecting the Ingredients of the Philippines
Each label tells a story of the diverse ingredients that form the heart of our creations. The labels are adorned with carefully crafted images that reflect the raw beauty of the ingredients we use. Whether it's the sun-kissed mangoes or the aromatic spices, our labels now provide a visual sneak peek into the flavors you're about to savour.
Transport yourself to the Philippines through our labels. The imagery showcases iconic island features such as swaying coconut palms, crystal-clear beaches, and vibrant sails of native boats. With every glance, you'll embark on a sensory journey to the heart of our culinary inspiration.
Experience the Transformation
We invite you to explore our revamped labels and embark on a visual and gastronomic adventure. As you hold a bottle or jar adorned with our new design, you're holding a piece of the Philippines in your hands. Join us in celebrating this exciting chapter as we continue to bring you the flavors of the islands, now wrapped in a new captivating identity.
