William Tiu Lim, President and CEO of Mega Global Corporation, one of the country’s leading manufacturers and distributors of canned goods, recently bagged the Meralco Biz Partners Entrepreneur of the Year at the Asia CEO Awards held in the Grand Ballroom of the Manila Marriot Hotel in Pasay City.
The award aims to recognize personalities who achieved success in the field of business, government, and academics in the Philippines and across the Asia Pacific Region.
Out of a hundred nominations, Tiu Lim emerged on top of the nine finalists for the Entrepreneur of the Year category. The award is given recognition of Tiu Lim’s success since starting a local business from scratch and pays tribute to how he overcame personal risks in the course of growing his business.
Through his hard work and guidance, Mega Global Corporation, has not only dominated the local market but is now exported to 36 countries in North America, Asia and Europe. Starting with only one fishing vessel, he now heads of a 70-vessel company engaged in large scale commercial fishing and canning.
Mega Global also pioneered some industry firsts, such as the “12-hour Catching to Canning” process, a fishing process using unique technology that ensures that fishes caught are processed and canned within a 12-hour timeframe ensuring freshness and high-quality. The company also came up with the “Easy Open” can that has since been copied.
To date, Mega Global has established a firm place among Filipino’s hearts and households with its flagship brand, MEGA SARDINES, which is the Number 1 Sardines Brand in the Philippines, along with other extensive line up of innovative, high-quality, and value-for-money products like the MEGA CREATIONS Premium Sardines, MEGA TUNA and MEGA PRIME Canned Vegetables.
“It has always been our mission to bring the best quality and only the freshest products for Filipinos. This award serves as an inspiration for all of us in Mega Global to continue bringing excellence not just with our products, but also for our country,” said Tiu Lim.
The Entrepreneur of the Year is one of the 17 awards that were given to the most accomplished leaders, teams, and individuals in this year’s Asia CEO Awards. It is the largest business awards in the country, as well as one of the largest events of its kind in the Asia Pacific. As presented by the PLDT Enterprise, the said awards seek to promote the ASEAN region as a premier business destination.
