Diane said, “Today marks the culmination of an idea that began about 5 years ago particularly after a Manny Pacquiao fight in Macau last November 2014. This was the night that my father, Mr. Vic Rosario and Mr. Jason Wang conceptualized the idea of putting up a repacking and formulating plant in Mindanao – the first of its kind. I remembered how we talked about the “hows “and the “whys” the “pros” and the “cons” of such venture on top of a high rise bar with magnificent views of the city of Macau. I thought to myself maybe they were just daydreaming due to that magnificent view but lo and behold, now everything is in reality.”
