About the organization
Golden Duck is a social enterprise that was established out of the Gawad Kalinga Enchanted Farm. The organization produces 100% premium duck products from the Philippines.
Products include, but are not limited to:
- GoldenducK Golden Eggs
- GoldenduK duck patties
- GoldenducK Sisig
GoldenducK’s premium line of Golden Eggs are the Philippines’ first food grade coloured gourmet salted egg. Salted duck eggs are traditionally coloured a bright pink in order to hide the imperfections on the shell such as cracks or discolorations, but it turns out that the Sudan red dye used in colourings is carcinogenic. As a solution, GoldenducK uses an all natural turmeric dye to give their duck eggs a bright yellow hue without compromising health. The Golden Egg also uses 50% less salt than traditional salted duck eggs.
All ducks are locally sourced, community-owned and raised in partnership with Gawad Kalinga communities.

What makes it a social enterprise?
GoldenducK proudly works in collaboration with residents of Gawad Kalinga communities in Bulacan (areas that are traditionally low-income and underprivileged) in order to create sustainable livelihoods. Their vision is to grow the Pinoy duck market, which has traditionally been low margin with low revenue, bringing in little profit for duck farmers in the Philippines. By establishing the duck industry as a profitable key player, GoldenducK hopes to create more sustainable and profitable livelihoods for duck farmers and rural communities.
In addition to selling gourmet duck products, GoldenducK trains duck farmers on how to breed their ducks, how to scale up their business, and how to manage their financials - all in an effort to establish the duck industry as a major force in the Philippine meat market.
The organization emerged out of Gawad Kalinga’s Enchanted Farm, which serves as a village university, social tourism destination, and incubator of social enterprises. By supporting GoldenducK, you also support Gawad Kalinga - an organization committed to achieving its 2024 goal of ending poverty by providing housing, creating sustainable livelihoods, and developing uniquely Filipino social enterprises that will transform rural villages into strong and lasting communities.
