PhilAm Food Reviews

In February 2016, a Philam Food customer named Irene Nicholson felt she had had enough and decided to publicly voice out her grievance about receiving expired food from its online grocery store.

She wrote that she had already once before received food she had ordered past the expiration date and had decided to stay quiet that first time but unfortunately, on another order, she received expired food again. After that second time, she decided to go public.

If you want to order Filipino food, groceries, and books online, be sure to check Amazon, which now sells everything from Baguio walis tambo to Growers Peanuts.


If you feel you are a victim who can be part of one or multiple class-action lawsuits against PhilAm Food, please email

Examples of potential plaintiffs being sought:

  • Individuals who experienced the effects of a possible data breach after making a purchase on their online store
  • Individuals who received expired food after purchasing on their online store
  • Individuals who bought expired food in their physical store
  • Individuals who witnessed rodent infestation in their physical store
  • Individuals who were told by the store clerks or company representatives in person, by email, via social media, or by phone that ALL their products are sourced directly from the Philippines
  • Individuals who have seen web/store signage or announcements that ALL their products are authentically from the Philippines
  • Individuals who were charged hidden fees on store transactions, particularly relating to Paypal refunds on the online store
  • Individuals who were told that certain items in their inventory (Ramar Foods’ Magnolia, Pampanga’s Best, Magnolia Meats, Martin Purefoods) are made by Philippine companies.

In particular, in the case of Magnolia ice cream, if you were told that “it’s the same as the Philippines'” or given that impression, you can directly email

Please write down, even if only for your own notes for now, all the relevant details you remember, including but not limited to dates, location, and persons involved.

UPDATE: After years of scandal, Phil-Am Food changed its name to Filstop in mid-2016; however, on New Jersey’s books, Phil-am Food and Filstop are still the same entity, so if you have cause to file a lawsuit against Phil-Am Food, you can still proceed and sue Filstop.

Boycott Frescano Frozen Bangus (Milkfish)

Boycott Frescano Frozen Bangus (Milkfish) !!!

It belongs to Ramar Foods, the American company that stole the Magnolia brand and logo, as well the Pampanga’s Best brand, from the Philippines.

Do NOT buy any of the following products:

Frescano Rellenong Bangus 16 ounces 1.80 pounds
Frescano Deboned / Boneless Bangus Ffd
Frescano Bangus Belly
Frescano Marinated Baby Bangus Bsm
Frescano Smoked Baby Bangus Sdb
Frescano Smoked Bangus Sd

As an alternative, look for the Philippine brand Sarangani Bay instead.

We are urging our fellow Filipino Americans to not spend their hard-earned dollars lining the dirty pockets of companies like Ramar that engage in unethical practices, such as this blatant trademark and brand piracy. Do not condone the theft of Philippine intellectual property.

There are honest companies who are more deserving of our patronage.

Boycott Manila Gold Calamansi

Manila Gold Frozen Calamansi is a product manufactured by Ramar Foods, the company that has pirated food brands from the Philippines, including the widely known Magnolia Ice Cream and Pampanga’s Best.

We encourage a boycott of all products manufactured by the OMGpeke company Ramar Foods.

Exercise your power as a consumer.

Do NOT buy Manila Gold Frozen Calamansi.

Royal Tru-Orange

Royal Tru is a carbonated fruit-flavored soft drink brand owned by The Coca-Cola Company with bottlers in the Philippines.

Royal Tru-Orange gained much attention in the 1980s on account of commercials featuring the character “Joey,” who has a crush on “Jenny.” They have an iconic place in the minds of Filipinos who grew up in the Philippines during that time.
