The company that we now know as Ramar Foods first started out as Orientex in 1969. Our founder, Maria Quesada, offered imported furniture and jewelry to other Filipinos searching for goods from the Philippines. Recognizing the need to nourish the growing community of Filipinos in California, she started selling Filipino meats, starting with Sweet Pork Longanisa under the Orientex brand.
Today, Orientex now offers a range of Filipino breakfast meats and lumpia, and is well-known in major and independent Asian markets. Being the Grandmother of Ramar’s brands, we aim to bring the flavors you are familiar with from your own Lola’s cooking, into your home.
