About:

For over 55 years, the Republic Biscuit Corporation (REBISCO), a recognized pioneer in the Biscuit industry, has positioned itself to be one of the dominant players in the Philippine snack food industry with a growing global presence.

The humble ventures of REBISCO began in a neighborhood bakeshop in old San Juan, Metro Manila in 1963. Starting out as England Biscuit Factory, the bakeshop was backed up by an English-type rotary oven which was considered top-of-the-line then. The production of flagship brands Crema (the first cream sandwich) and Sodatine (plain crackers) marked England Biscuit Factory's entry into the market. The company grew steadily and moved to Novaliches, Quezon City to operate in a more spacious factory. In 1972, it acquired a new image and name, becoming the REBISCO that we know today.

With its extensive distribution network, market research, technology and product development, and most importantly, its pledge to contribute to building the Filipino nation through its various corporate social responsibility programs, REBISCO has significantly grown and continued to strengthen its position in the market.

From a basic portfolio of biscuits such as the famous and pioneering Rebisco Cracker Sandwiches that generations of Filipinos have loved, REBISCO now carries a wide variety of snack food ranging from nuts and seeds, cakes, wafers, breads, chips and curls, candies and gums, and chocolates. This growth transpired through the creation of new partners over time such as JBC Food Corp. (1989), Suncrest Foods Inc. (1995), Multirich Foods Corp. and Pinnacle Foods Inc. (both in 1999), and SPI Corp. (2003).

By maintaining quality at par with nothing but the best in the industry, REBISCO stays true to its commitment of offering best-value, innovative and proudly Filipino-made snacks to consumers locally and globally—making deliciously delightful moments possible, everyday.
