Who we are
The Filiflavors Story
Mabuhay! My name is Bianca, I am the founder and owner of Filiflavors. Filiflavors is a 100% woman-owned small business that provides modern “pasalubong” through Filipino surprise snack boxes, gift boxes, and recipe kits.
I was born and raised in Manila but moved to the Bay Area with my family a few years ago. My younger brother was diagnosed within the Autism Spectrum when he was younger and we moved here to provide him a better life. It’s been an amazing but tough journey and the thing that we hold on to that brings us memories of home is through food.
According to the census, Filipinos are the 2nd largest Asian group in the US, but I’ve always wondered why our food and culture is not widely known and accessible. Filiflavors aims to provide you with the most convenient and delightful experience to get a taste of what the Philippines has to offer.
Food is a love language and plays a plays a huge role in our lives. Our boxes aim to bring the best flavors of the Philippines right to the doorsteps of those who are missing familiar tastes of home, looking to discover new favorites, or just starting to learn about Filipino food and culture
A small part of our sales benefit “Support for Families of Children with Disabilities” and “Pomeroy Recreation & Rehabilitation Center”, both are nonprofits that are based in SF. It takes a village to care for someone who has special needs and these nonprofits help equip special needs individuals and their families by providing trainings, events, and a sense of community.
My dream is for Filiflavors to be an instrument in providing Filipino food and culture representation and also providing support to the Autism community.
Thanks so much for being here and I hope you can be part of our journey of bringing the best flavors of the Philippines everywhere. 🧡
