Meet unMEAT, the 100% plant-based meat


It’s a generally accepted notion that eating healthy means skipping great-tasting food. 


Not anymore. Now it’s completely possible to enjoy the best of both worlds as Century Pacific Food Inc. (CNPF), one of the largest branded food companies in the Philippines, unveils its newest brand: unMEAT, a 100% plant-based meat, made tasty from simple ingredients.


“One of the biggest concerns about plant-based foods is that they are not delicious or as pleasing to the palate as real meat,” notes Nikki Dizon, a Senior Executive at CNPF. “But our Nutrition Science team took that as a challenge, and completely delivered by coming up with a meat alternative that unbelievably and undeniably looks, feels, and tastes like meat. Moreover, they made unMEAT using simple ingredients and extracted the nutrients from real food rather than synthetic compounds so it’s healthier and more affordable”


The launch of unMEAT was driven by a growing consumer demand to incorporate healthier food options into their diet, especially given the ongoing pandemic. This is evident in the shift of food trends on social media. Whereas in the past, food aficionados across the globe constantly debated on the best burgers, social media is now filled with discussions on which plant-based burger looks, tastes, smells, and even bleeds like real meat. 


With unMEAT, taste is never compromised! It is as delicious as a regular meat patty, with a similar mouth-feel, making it the best meat alternative for those who are planning to make the switch to a healthier, more sustainable diet. Even better, unMEAT is packed with simple but nutritious ingredients. It is a good source of fiber and protein. It’s also cholesterol-free, trans fat-free, egg-free, and dairy-free.


During the launch, Michelin star chef Sau del Rosario who was among the first to sample unMEAT, described it as “the taste is like you got it from the oven. It’s tasty, it’s clean, and it’s very delicious. I would put this in my menu!”



UNMEAT four variants: How much is Unmeat?

·      UNMEAT Nuggets Php120.

·      UNMEAT Hungarian Sausages Php135.

·      UNMEAT Minced Meat Php120.

·      UNMEAT Burger Patty Php135.

In the Philippines, unMEAT was first introduced through Shakey’s Pizza’s newest offering, the Goood Burger. It has since attracted a small cult following in the few weeks it has top-billed Shakey’s Pizza chain’s foray to burgers.  


Now, as the plant-based food mania continues to sweep the world over, Century Pacific Food Inc., is giving consumers easy access to healthy and tasty 100% plant-based food options as unMEAT is now available via online shopping platforms, and increasingly in supermarkets and specialty stores nationwide.


Following unMEAT’s successful initial rollout as Shakey’s Goood Burger, CNFP will also be partnering with more restaurants in the country.

PBB Housemates undergo COVID-19 Testing with Maxicare's LAB on Wheels

To ensure that housemates for the new season of Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) are all safe from COVID-19, Maxicare LAB on Wheels successfully conducted Antigen Testing for all members of the House, as part of the show’s health protocols.

Maxicare LAB on Wheels successfully conducted Antigen Testing for the Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) housemates.

Being the first PBB season to be held under the new normal, auditions were held online, and safety measures were strictly observed before entering the house. These include medical, psychological, and COVID-19 testing.


Adhering to Maxicare’s stringent health standards, the Antigen Tests were administered by PPE-geared registered medical technologists and nurses.


“The goal is to limit unnecessary contact and exposure,” says a Maxicare staff member who facilitated the testing process. “Each housemate entered the testing room one by one then they went to their respective rooms as soon as the tests were done. For maximum protection, all housemates were required to wear face masks and face shields.”


The entire process, from testing to releasing of results, took only around 2 hours.

The tests were made possible through Maxicare LAB on Wheels, Maxicare’s fully equipped mobile health vans for COVID-19 (Roche Antibody Test, Antigen Test, and RTPCR Test) and routine blood testing. Now, patients no longer have to wade through the traffic or wait in crowded rooms for hours. Maxicare would be the one who will come and visit the preferred location within Metro Manila, ensuring that the group meets the entire minimum requirement.


Each mobile health van has a testing capacity of up to 100 people per day. Maxicare LAB on Wheels also offers access to Telemedicine video consultation, uses an electronic medical record system, and sends the results via email.



Just like how Maxicare took care of the PBB housemates, it aims to reach more Filipinos so they can live their best lives wherever they are.
