Moringa trader named finalist in JCI int’l award


The sole proprietor of Moringa Green Health International Depot (MGHID), Analisa Sioco-Ordas has been chosen as one of the national finalists in the 2010 Junior Chamber International-Creative Young Entrepreneur Awards.

Ordas started MGHID in her own backyard in 2007 under the name Ordas Kalunggay Depot.

As her business prospers, Ordas saw its  potential and the need to be recognized in the export market, thus she formed the Moringa Green Health International Corp (MGHIC), which is   a family corporation duly registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Oct. 6, 2008. Subsequently, she registered the corporation with the Bureau of Internal Revenue on July 2009 when its formal business operation started.

As a premier Moringa manufacturer in Bicol region, the company has acquired its Food and Drug Administration license to operate in the business of buying and selling, manufacturing, distributing, importing, and exporting Moringa products on wholesale and retail basis. The major raw material is Moringa, locally known as malunggay.

Ordas’ Moringa business now sells, aside from the capsules, by-products like soap, wine, juice, tea, and oil.

Three years into the business, Ordas’ family-run business could produce daily some 500 capsules, 500 bottles of 15 ml. Moringa Green Oil, 100 bars of soap, 100 bottles of wine, 200 bottles of concentrated Moringa juice, and 20 kilos of tea, as ordered.

Ordas gives credit to her success to former Calauag barangay captain Vidal Castillo who supported her studies from elementary to college.
