Inspired, motivated and impassioned: three words that best describe the men and women behind the Great Taste team who went all out during the recent PBA-inspired re-launch of Great Taste Premium and Great Taste 3-in-1. Now with richer flavor and aroma, these Great Taste bets are guaranteed to give you exquisite coffee taste minus the hefty price tag. There’s really nothing like Great Taste — with its glorious heritage as the constant trailblazer in the Philippines’ coffee industry and its continuous quest towards perfecting the coffee recipe that would best satisfy the discriminating Filipino palate.
Crunchy, tasty and oh so yummy — that’s the new Jack ‘n Jill Pretz Stix, a tempting biscuit pretzel creation that’s bursting with savory flavors. Pretz Stix is the first of its kind in the local market with its slim, crunchy biscuit and awesome Smokey BBQ and Tomato Mustard flavors.
A new and novel kind of sweet treat has emerged from Jack ‘n Jill’s kitchen: Quake Layers — tiers of moist sponge cake slathered with an exquisite blend of flavors and cream, baked just right and sealed fresh in foil packs.
The latest TV commercials of URC’s Quake Rolls, Quake Layers, and Cream-O are now online.
Jack ‘n Jill is definitely on a roll! After introducing Jack ‘n Jill as the mega brand of quality snacks, cakes, chocolates and candies, it has now dished out a fresh, novel batch of products like the new Quake Rolls.
With an upbeat rhythm and catchy lyrics that describe how colorless one’s life can be without a beloved companion, the new Jack ‘n Jill jingle perfectly depicts how life is made much more meaningful with Jack ‘n Jill. The infectious song, written by Kartoon Chemistry’s lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Chochai Magno, is seamlessly integrated in the latest Jack ‘n Jill television commercial which features 14 vignettes that paint everyday yet precious moments all shared with Jack ‘n Jill. There’s a young woman relishing her solitude, a couple sharing a kiss under the sun, an adventurer exploring the outdoors and even a family gathered for a picnic. Different people, different situations, different lives. But there’s only one brand that brings total fun and enjoyment through quality products that have been with us for the past forty years. Life is definitely much more fun with Jack ‘n Jill around.

The new URC – Flour
Wheat crops, milling technology, work ethics and customer expectations are just few of the areas that have evolved in the milling industry over the past years. Being in commercial operations since 1970, Universal Robina Corporation – Flour Division is ready to embark this year as it fully operates three flourmills – Continental Milling Company (CMC) – Pasig, CMC – Davao, and the new URC Flour Plant with rated production capacities of 700, 300 and 550 tons of wheat per day, respectively. These three flourmills/ business units all fall under one larger umbrella organization — the URC – Flour Division.
Universal Robina Sugar Milling Company (URSUMCO) marks another milestone.
After almost a decade of waiting, not to mention the seemingly endless revisions of the documentary requirements, URSUMCO’s efforts paid off when the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) granted the Environmental Compliance Certificate (ECC) for the Raw Sugar Mill and Refinery Plant Project. Mr. Jun Erasmo E. Villafane, DENR Regional Director for Region VII, signed and issued the certificate to Rene P. Cabati, Business Unit General Manager, last February in Cebu City.

Life begins at forty, so the cliché goes. Aptly for Jack ‘n Jill, 2005 was not just a commemoration of its 40th anniversary, as Mr. Pet Bautista and Mr. Benny Sanchez had profoundly proclaimed, “Dominance and Supremacy begins at 40!”
True enough, the country was besieged and was witness to a grandiose event — the mega branding of Jack ‘n Jill. The number one name in Snack foods will not only carry Snacks but also Candies, Chocolates, Bakery and Biscuits as well.
