The Philippine Council of Management Research Institute Inc. has awarded the Outstanding Corporation of the Year Award (2015-2016) to MIGHTY Corporation. This award was given in recognition of Mighty Corp.’s achievements in business, social, cultural and religious affairs.
MIGHTY Corp. is the reconstituted company of the Tobacco Industries of the Philippines. It is the offshoot of the La Campana Fabrica de Tabacos Inc. The company is tied with the Wong Chu King Foundation. Wong Chu King is the founder of La Campana Fabrica de Tabacos Inc. He came from Amoy, China just before World War II broke out. The war left him broke and penniless but through 70 years of hard work and determination with Ong Lowa, Baa Dy and Ong Pay, he has built up La Campana as the business empire it is today. Despite the tides of change, the company was able to build three more factories. Today, they are among the countries highest taxpayers.
The Wong Chu King Foundation’s vision is to “transformation through charity.” They are actively involved in educational and apostolic charities focused on areas where tobacco farming is common. They also offer scholarships to deserving dependents and beneficiaries of local tobacco farmers.
