Milagros Enriquez, matriarch of the Enriquez family of San Jose, Bulacan, and author of the book “Kasaysayan ng Kaluto ng Bayan,” started Pamana ni Ka Mila Food Products in 2000.
The matriarch shared her knowledge with daughter-in-law Czarina who now owns and manages the business. One of the most valuable ideas she has shared with Czarina is her knowledge of nipa, and the potential of sukang sasa, which comes from nipa.
Today, the company’s “Sukang Bulacan” and “Tuba ng Sasa” are exported to the US, France and Japan.
