Rice Cakes in Mawab, Compostela Valley

bibingka.jpgOne of our favorite stops going  east of Davao City is Bibingka City in Mawab,  a small town in Compostela Valley province.

I like the taste of their bibingka or rice cake. It is typical Filipino. Also, bingka (the Cebuano term) is so natural in Mindanao’s rice-producing provinces. I (or is this Skippy’s take?) took a photo of bingka on display in Bibingka City.

I think it cost us P10 for a pack (made up of two pieces) of rice cake.
The packaging is so humble it could use a lot of improvement. But it is good and definitely a good snack for a day’s trip.

    Dear Sir:
    Your comment on the rice cakes in Mawab packaging caught my attention. I am looking for an attractive way to package them.
    Ang Bibingka ni Aling Maria was our first case in our first day of class for MM ’87. Until now I do not know if anybody considered the packaging.
    Aling Maria’s cakes were selling very well in the case so there seemed to be no problem.
    Then our professor tickled us until we realized that a fast moving product needs additional capital, personnel, and a host of other needs.
    Going back to Bibingka, what can you suggest to improve the packaging?
