About us

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.

RoniB’s Kitchen is more than just a food business. It is a passion project that aims to share the rich and diverse flavours of Filipino cuisine with the world. Behind this vision is a team of experts in their field who work together to deliver high-quality products and services to our customers.
