CDO Foodsphere and Kraft Heinz enter into distribution agreement


Manila, Philippines – A partnership has been signed between two of the biggest names in the food industry to help provide a better dining experience for consumers in the Philippines. Philippine meat processing giant CDO Foodsphere will take over the distribution of Kraft Heinz products in the foodservice industry in the Philippines. This includes hotels, full service restaurants, quick service restaurants, canteens and caterers.

Both companies are major players in the food sector. Kraft Heinz is one of the largest food companies in the world. CDO Foodsphere was recognized by Campaign Asia-Pacific for ranking 14th in the Top 100 Brands in the Philippines and received the ASEAN Business Award in 2020 in the regional category.

“It’s great to have this collaboration between our two companies,” says Jerome D. Ong, President and CEO of CDO Foodsphere. “This allows us to both strengthen and extend the reach of our product portfolios.”

Through their products, the companies bring to life dishes that delight customers and families who go out to eat and spend quality time together.

“We see the Philippines as an important market to grow our Kraft Heinz presence,” said Rafal Walendzik, Managing Director of Asia Trading at Kraft Heinz. “We are delighted with our partnership with CDO Foodsphere and have chosen them because of their credibility and their strong distribution network in the local restaurant channel.”

CDO Foodsphere has been in the food processing industry for 47 years and is known for introducing innovative products that can win in the marketplace.

With the company now handling the distribution of Kraft Heinz products, both companies are able to expand their presence in various categories. Vice President for Emerging Business Jason D. Ong explained, “Through the partnership with Kraft Heinz, we can meet our customers’ needs for condiments and seasonings that complement the delicious meal experience. It’s important to us and it’s good to find in Kraft Heinz a partner who also puts consumers at the center of its operation.

Once the distribution agreement was signed, full implementation began on April 10. This is very promising, especially as the Philippines is in an election year and heading towards post-pandemic recovery.

“We have always been passionate about our consumers and our customers. We want them to succeed and we want their businesses to grow,” said Jérôme Ong.
