Alternatives Food Corporation (AFC) is a top tier broad line food service supply integrator based in the Philippines. The company began in 1998 as a private enterprise that focused on the compelling need of the local food industry for stability, quality and value. Today, the company continues to meet this need with the help of various partners in its international network of supply resources.
Since first providing an alternative source of key ingredients in the snack food industry, AFC has since expanded into other product lines. From native potato starches, flakes and granules, AFC now carries beef, pork, lamb, poultry,
seafoods, modified starches, sesame seeds, functional blends and spices.
At AFC, our mission is to provide the food service and manufacturing industries with products and services of the highest quality. Committed to a philosophy of “Global Quality Sourcing”, AFC looks at situations from the customer’s point of view, understanding that real solutions should come from a global perspective in providing the customer with what they need to succeed in their business.
