Company Description
Universal Robina Corporation (URC) was founded in 1954 when Mr. John Gokongwei, Jr. established Universal Corn Products, Inc., a cornstarch manufacturing plant in Pasig. The Company is involved in a range of food-related businesses, including the manufacture and distribution of branded consumer foods; production of hogs and poultry; manufacture of animal feeds and veterinary products; flour milling; and sugar milling and refining. URC also ventured in the renewables business for sustainability through distillery and cogeneration divisions.

Majority of URC's branded consumer foods business is conducted in the Philippines, but the Company has expanded into other Asian markets through its subsidiaries in Cayman Islands, British Virgin Islands, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Myanmar, Vietnam, New Zealand, and Australia.
