The Mother of Organic farming in the Philippines
Together with her daughter, Mary Jane Tan-Ong, their first thought was to create a business that would provide a livelihood for the local farmers and their families. This led to them discovering the amazing benefits of both Pili and Elemi Oils through extensive research and product development.
The team behind Pili Ani embodies The Chosen Tree’s generosity by helping over 200 families in the Bicol Region.
The brand believes in circularity and doesn’t just provide income by purchasing harvested nuts and oils but also creating programs that uplift the lives of its community of farmers.
Farmer Noli has been with us from the beginning. Rosalina bought her first bottle of Pili Oil from Noli to help feed his family. He still works for the brand, harvesting oils in the Bicol region today.
The Save our Soil Foundation encourages farmers to shift to organic practices while providing scholarships for their families. The Pili Literacy Program provides financial assistance to economically challenged students. Our business is rooted in doing good and making sure that the system we use in crafting beauty is truly beautiful from the ground up.
