What is Diet in a Box?
Winner of Best of Cebu 2016, Diet in a Box offers healthy organic meals in Cebu, Philippines. Its Filipino owners, Bibo Moreno and Chime Bosabel were even featured in one of Sunstar’s regular publications. Bibo is a chef and also an entrepreneur while Chime was a specialist in one of those BPO companies. Both share a love for everything organic and would have nothing but organic food every weekend at Aloguinsan, Bibo’s hometown.
Diet in a Box sources all food ingredients from either Bibo’s mini farm or the community farm project in Aloguinsan, his hometown. Some organic suppliers are in Talamban and Balamban. Thinking about how the business started, Bibo’s friends, including Chime would come for a visit and enjoy great tasting food prepared jointly by Bibo and his mom. Instagram shots of those food meals circulated and aroused interest and a following. This got Bibo and Chime started in the business of bringing dishes to Cebu first to sample to friends then eventually to a lot of the locals in the area. Now, the online store exists as Diet in A Box. It has been running since March 2015.
