In recognition of its achievements in business matters and in social, cultural and religious affairs, the Philippine Council of Management Research Institute Inc. has awarded the Outstanding Corporation of the Year Award (20152016) to MIGHTY Corporation.
MIGHTY Corp. is the current name of the post-war La Campana Fabrica de Tabacos Inc. which was also known as Tobacco Industries of the Philippines at one point in time. Its social arm is the Wong Chu King Foundation.
Wong Chu King founded the company with the help and support of Ong Lowa, Baa Dy, Ong Pay and his family. He did this right after he came to the Philippines from Amoy, China during the post-World War II era.
For the past 70 years, despite the changes in business practices, economy and public taste the company was able to thrive and be the business empire it is today. The company has now three factories and is cited as among the countries honest and biggest tax contributors.
Its social arm, the Wong Chu King Foundation is actively engaged in educational and apostolic charities targeting communities where planting tobacco is their main source of income. Through this, they are able to help further the education of the children of tobacco farmers. Their vision is to “transformation through charity“.”
