How Bernardo Chua Found Success With Premium Beverages

Bernardo Chua is a Canadian businessman who was born in the Philippines. After completing his education he went to work for his family’s company. He says that because he had many older brothers and sisters working for the company at the time he had way too many bosses giving conflicting orders. He eventually made the decision to strike out on his own and become an entrepreneur. His first company was Gano Excel Philippines which sold premium teas. The difference maker for his teas was that they contained the powder of Ganoderma Lucidum. This is a type of mushroom that has been used throughout Asia for its healing properties for over 2,000 years. Read more on about Bernardo Chua

Gano Excel Philippines was a direct marketing company. This means that they had independent contractors who sold the company’s products and in exchange received a commission for each sale. This model proved successful and soon Bernardo Chua and his team had expanded internationally into other Asian markets. A few years later he decided to expand into North America and so he moved, along with his family, to the United States where he launched and presided over Gano Excel USA in 2003.

Five years later, in 2008, Bernardo Chua decided to expand what he sold that contained Ganoderma Lucidum. He launched a new company in British Columbia, Canada, named Organo Gold. In addition to premium teas his company sells premium coffee as well as personal care products like toothpaste. He serves as the chief executive officer and uses his expertise in the food & beverage industry as well as his 20 years in the direct marketing industry to successfully operate this company.

Organo Gold products are now sold around the world in many countries. In February 2015 he returned to Manila, Philippines, so that he could personally receive one of this nation’s highest business honors. He was presented with the Dangal ng Bayan Award because of his international business success. As his products are sold in the Philippines his company Organo Gold also received a pair of People’s Choice Awards during the ceremony he attended. Visit:
