Company History

Recognized nationwide primarily for its flavorfully superb soy sauce, the Silver Swan Manufacturing Company is currently not only one of the largest condiment manufacturers in the country, but is also one of the leading product innovators in a dynamic industry that caters to ever-changing demands from a large consumer base with a plenitude of needs and vastly diverse preferences. Its towering stature in the industry, however, could not have been achieved without the painstaking perseverance of its founder, the late Mr. Sy Bun Suan. He, with the help of his wife and her family, set up a small scale family-owned venture that sold soy sauce in the heart of Chinatown. Humble ambitions soon gave way to grander dreams as the business grew steadily in size, eventually giving birth to the Silver Swan brand in 1942. His children pressed on even further to turn Silver Swan into a company known for both its value and its quality.

Since then, the company has relocated to Malabon, the site of its principal manufacturing facility and has opened another plant in Cebu to serve as an integral hub in the company’s extensive distribution networks. Over the years, the company has diversified, producing not only soy sauce, but a myriad of products designed to enhance culinary delights that bring familiar tastes that dance daintily on Filipino tongues and new flavors to tingle even international palates. Strategic product extensions have also helped the company serve the specific needs of a broad market. Technology has also played an important part in the development of the company. State of the art machinery is always at the disposal of its savvy managers, who seek to address the needs of consumers by providing only the best condiments Silver Swan has to offer. Therefore, it is easy to see why this accomplished company has garnered numerous accolades over the years as it has entrenched itself into the heart of every Filipino.
