Tag: Quesada Family

The Quesadas are the ethically challenged Filipino Americans who founded and built Ramar Foods to what it is now by stealing food brand names from the Philippines, including Magnolia Ice Cream and Pampanga’s Best.

Notorious in the Filipino American community for their duplicity and intra-family infighting, the Quesadas are without moral compass.

Ramon and Maria Quesada, Primo Quesada, PJ Quesada, Susie Quesada

Notable is that Susie Quesada was a teacher with no business chops who had to be dragged back into the family company to provide a female face (oh wow, how progressive!) as head of such a derided company. (Hey, don’t attack Ramar Foods for being an unethical company. It has a female president! Are you against women CEOs? Because if you criticize Ramar Foods, you are attacking a woman.)

The younger Primo Quesada tried his hand at being an independent marketer but couldn’t cut it — producing nothing but the cheapest quality of video commercials — so he ended up working back at Ramar, carrying on the family’s legacy of unethical business practices.

If you can’t cut it on your own, go back to the family business. Same thing with PhilamFood’s Erwin Santos. But that’s another long story that includes rat infestation, Ashley Madison memberships (plural), and yet another intra-family tale of infighting that goes all the way to the federal courts.

Midtown LA has a sizable Filipino population. Apparently, many of them have been buying "Magnolia" ice cream at local stores, unaware that it is not the same as the Magnolia ice cream the Filipinos grew up with in the Philippines.

Here's the backstory of what has been dubbed the OMGpeke scandal in the Filipino American community.

Magnolia is an Asian ice-cream brand that was commercially established in the Philippines in 1925. It has belonged to the San Miguel company for most of its history.

In the 1970s, a completely unaffiliated Filipino American family in Northern California started marking their own ice-cream products with the "Magnolia" name in order to surf on the goodwill that the original Magnolia had developed among Filipinos from the old country.
