Health and Wellness Meals Launching by Family Mart


Family Mart stirs Philippine retail store industry to where convenience and healthy food meet

With the Filipino urbanites’ fast-paced lifestyle, eating healthy meals has been the easy thing to sacrifice due to its inconvenience. Time-consuming, unappealing, and bland – this is the usual connotation behind hearty and nutritious meals. But what if healthy meals can now be accessible, scrumptious, and affordable.



This year, the spotlight gets brighter on health as Philippine FamilyMart CVS, Inc. launches its Health and Wellness line. Eating healthy has never been this convenient – no need to spare hours to prepare when it’s now just a few minutes away with exceptional ready-meals available straight from any Philippine FamilyMart store nationwide.


“We, at Philippine FamilyMart, ultimately want to make healthy quality food accessible to every Filipino,” shares Ed Paredes, Jr., General Manager for FamilyMart. “We hear the cry of our busy and on-the-go consumers for a one-stop place where they could get tasty and nourishing food that’s fresh, quick, and available.”


Beginning March 2015, FamilyMart beefs up its food selections with the introduction of its health and wellness line featuring ten dishes – ranging from rice meals, to pasta, and even classic snacks Filipinos will surely love. 

Breakfast Chicken Rice Php 150.00

Top it with chili sauce made from our signature mix of spices or with ginger leek sauce for that spicy boost of flavor.

Served with chicken breast fillet marinated and cooked to perfection, nothing comes close to this best source of healthy carbs and protein in one. Not just for regular people, this can also be enjoyed by those who are conscious about their sugar intake.
