Friggies

About the organization

Friggies is producing and selling fresh, organic, locally-sourced & all natural cold-pressed juices. The name Friggies comes from the words FRuIts and veGGIES. While their main focus is selling juice, what they really want to encourage with their activities is to get people to embrace a healthier lifestyle through the use of natural products. The founders were inspired in their mission after the health struggles they and their family encountered.

The organization has been supported by the Gawad Kalinga Enchanted Farm in Bulacan since their beginning and are sourcing most of their raw ingredients from the Enchanted Farm or other farming communities in the region.
