HISTORY

Hacienda Macaluan, Inc. (HMI) is a Philippine corporation and registered with the Philippine Securities and Exchange Commission in 1995 as a dairy farm entity, whose primary purpose is to sell and breed cattle farm animals, and the production of milk and related dairy products.

The company was founded by its current President and Chief Operating Officer, Mr. Eduardo J. Soriano, who has been engaged in the dairy industry since his family operated San Miguel and Magnolia Dairy.

Farm operations began with just a handful of Magnolia dairy cows but quickly expanded into a small-scale dairy farm following the acquisition and importation of 100 heads of Freshian Sahiwals from Australia.

In the late 1990’s HMI decided to further expand and venture into dairy processing operation. The plant initially processed a daily average of 100 liters of liquid milk and cheese products, which include white cheese or kesong puti, ricotta and cottage cheese. These were delivered by reefer vans daily to Manila’s exclusive subdivisions and villages thus earning its moniker“The Milkman”.

Even without an extensive advertising campaign to promote its products, HMI has since gained a slice of the vast dairy market through word of mouth. Consumers began appreciating the nutritional quality and pure taste of its fresh cow’s milk products to win over the support from loyal customers.

Strategically located in the foothills of Mt. Makiling in Calauan, Laguna, the farm today boasts several hectares of grazing land for the dairy herd, an automated milking parlor, a feeding and a micro dairy processing plant.
