Many people enjoy taking coffee. It acts as a supplement to meals and also as a relaxant whenever we feel like clearing our minds. Recently, there was excitement amongst coffee lovers after manufacturer Organo Gold introduced coffee and tea varieties containing a 4200 year old Chinese herb known as Ganoderma Lucidum. The shrub, also known as the ‘King of Herbs’ increases the flavor of beverages. In addition, nutritionists say it helps increase oxygen stock in various parts of the body, boost resistance to diseases and assist in the elimination of toxic wastes from the body.
The new range of products is packaged in such a way that they are ready to drink. One can have his favorite beverage ranging from Café Latte to Mocha without necessarily searching for a coffee shop. All one needs to do is dip the coffee bags in hot water.
The Filipino native is the founder and CEO of Organo Gold. This is the parent company of smaller firms operating under the names Organo Gold and Coffee Connoisseur. He was led into forming the firms after noticing that a niche existed in the coffee market despite its high potential. There were no healthy products containing Ganoderma Lucidum and he therefore wanted to tap into this.
Before starting Organo Gold, Chua was an executive with Gano Excel Philippines. He helped expand operations to Hong Kong, Canada and the USA. The company was in the business of marketing products such as coffee which contained the herb. He later moved to the USA where he became Gano Excel’s North American Executive. He is credited for introducing the herb to the profitable North American Market.
From his Facebook it’s clear Mr. Chua has managed to oversee an ambitious expansion plan that that has seen Organo Gold open shop in many locations all over the world. Recently, its operations were expanded to Turkey, a country believed to be the location of the world’s first coffee shop. Chua has led the firm through a successful era. Dubbed one of the most accomplished Asian businessmen, Mr. Chua has been awarded many times during his corporate journey. He is a recipient of the 2014 Dangal ng Bayan Award for Business and Industry. He is also a five time recipient of the Direct Sales Company Executive of the year award. He continues to place his focus on making the best quality instant coffee and financing research about Ganoderma and ensuring Organo Gold maintains its position as the market leader. Bernie also tweets about the company, but there’s a brilliant YouTube speech Chua gave that should be required watching.
