MALAGOS AGRI-VENTURES CORPORATION
Malagos Agri Ventures Corporation is a chocolate manufacturing company which was formed on October 2012. This company is part of a family-owned group of businesses, Puentespina Group of Companies, which also handles Puentespina Orchid and Tropical Plants, Hydrock Wells, Malagos Garden Resort, Puentespina Farms and Malagos Farmhouse.
The family’s venture in cacao business started when the founders leased a farm in Malagos with existing cacao trees. The company established Puentespina Farms, which handles cacao and coconut farming. In 2007, the company started rehabilitating the farm with the technology given by Mars Cocoa Development Center and the help given by PUM chocolate consultant, Mr. Henk Negerman improving their farming practice and post-harvest process. Within the process of rehabilitation, the company produced tablea and exported its beans.
In 2012, the family decided to form Malagos Agri-Ventures Corporation and set up a chocolate manufacturing plant with basic processes and equipment. The establishment was done to control pricing of beans in the Philippines and to prove that Davao beans produce good quality chocolates. Also, in 2012, the company released its Premium Single Origin Unsweetened Chocolate with the brand name, Malagos Chocolate. On August 2013, the company launched its 65 % Dark Chocolate and Roasted Cacao Nibs products; and in November 2015, their Dark Chocolate Collection was released. All of these products are packed for retail and institutional supply.
Malagos Chocolates are premium couverture chocolates offered for pastry shops, restaurants, hotels, chocolate shops and other institutional firms. The company also strengthens its retail during the release of 65 % Dark Chocolate. Now, Malagos Chocolate products can be found in Pasalubong Centers, Specialty Stores, and Baking Supplies and are used by several Restaurants, Hotels and Coffee Shops in the Philippines. Also in 2016, the company started its export in Japan and Singapore.
