How we became the No.1 Traditional Homemade Unsweetened Pure Tableya Producer
The Tablea business was established last December 2018. It started when our neighbor could no longer sell her tablea due to her health. Our nephew regularly asked for his coined term “chocolate rice-milk” or champorado, for which our mother manually roasted the small amount of cacao beans bought from the market to produce tablea for daily consumption.
My wife, Rosanna Lisbos, thought of the idea to sell tablea online as an experiment which gave birth to our present business. Our first customers were my wife’s former classmates, officemates and students.
Bacuag’s Best Lisbos Tablea may only be a neophyte in the industry but it has already reached markets nationwide with bulk orders coming from repeat customers because of our aggressive marketing efforts in online and personal selling.
And on its third month of operation, my wife was endorsed by DTI-Surigao del Norte to be awarded as one of the Successful Women Entrepreneurs in Caraga Region for 2019 in recognition to her invaluable efforts and achievement as an entrepreneur.We are grateful and blessed to be assisted now by the DTI-SdN and DOST-Caraga and has been awarded of several grants to further improve the overall quality of our tablea product.
