Meet unMEAT, the 100% plant-based meat

Here’s the newest meat alternative that looks, tastes and is priced like real meat

It’s a generally accepted notion that eating healthy means skipping great-tasting food.  

Not anymore. Now it’s completely possible to enjoy the best of both worlds as Century Pacific Food Inc. (CNPF), one of the largest branded food companies in the Philippines, unveils its newest brand: unMEAT, a 100% plant-based meat, made tasty from simple ingredients. 

“One of the biggest concerns about plant-based foods is that they are not delicious or as pleasing to the palate as real meat,” notes Nikki Dizon, a Senior Executive at CNPF. “But our Nutrition Science team took that as a challenge, and completely delivered by coming up with a meat alternative that unbelievably and undeniably looks, feels, and tastes like meat. Moreover, they made unMEAT using simple ingredients and extracted the nutrients from real food rather than synthetic compounds so it’s healthier and more affordable”

Meatier and saucier: Chowking’s best-selling Siopao just got better!


The siopao has established itself as a true merienda staple among Filipinos.

This is why Chowking, the country’s leading Chinese fast-food chain, has given its best-selling Chunky Asado Siopao an even meatier and saucier upgrade. Known for making Chinese cuisine more accessible and affordable to the regular Filipino, Chowking has made the premium taste of authentic Chinese steamed buns easily within their customers’ reach.
