Practicality-Best Value

We commit to always use rational methods that measure value based on need, and a studied assessment of what gives the best worth for the lowest cost. We commit to always define what is best for us, not what others think is the best.

SUSTAINABILITY

As the trend for green movement slowly grows, consumers are rapidly converting to ecologically friendly means such as using renewable energy, promoting, and patronizing sustainable products, recycling, and utilizing natural and organic ingredients.

With the ever-changing world, the W Hydrocolloids, Inc. strives to incorporate sustainability in their day-to-day operations. As a vital part of a dynamic partnership to promote life and growth of the farmers, we continuously provide the required technical and financial assistance in terms of seaweed farming. Proper farming practices and additional knowledge on seaweed are imparted to the farmers through training sessions and general guidelines on improved farming techniques based on industry practices. With the use of these practices, farmers can harvest a more consistent number of seaweeds over a specific period of time, which essentially leads to increase in production and income for the farmers while following sustainable farming methods and producing quality raw materials. Several of W Hydrocolloids’ plants are also slowly converting to the use of geothermal energy to further enhance the company’s stand on sustainability movement. W Hydrocolloids is engaged in several socio-economic activities that aim to uplift and improve the quality of living through educational assistance, housing projects, feeding programs, and livelihood programs.

Standing as one of the leading exporters of ingredient solutions and carrageenan in the country, we at W Hydrocolloids, Inc., continuously operate to further enhance the firm’s thrust for environmental efficiency. We are working both upstream and downstream to produce and supply affordable, yet high quality and safe products, as well as upcycle and reutilize waste to reduce greenhouse effect, respectively.
