VFI began as a backyard poultry and piggery set up in Jagobiao, Mandaue City in the 1960’s as a pastime of Doña Virginia Sy Chiongbian.  Hog carcass and dressed chicken and later choice cuts were then rationed to the family’s shipping business as well as its residence in Cebu City.  In 1968 the business was registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as Virginia Farms, Inc.

As demand for processed products increased, a 2,215 sq. m. processing plant with canning facilities was constructed on a two-hectare property in Tugbongan, Consolacion in 1977.  Virginia Farms Inc., thus operated both poultry and piggery as well as processing of meat products.  In November 1982, production and marketing of processed meats divisions were spun off to form a new corporation, VFI FOOD, INC., later named VIRGINIA FOOD, INC.

VFI is registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Bureau of Domestic Trade (BOT) and with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).  The Company is a member of the Philippine Association of Meat Processors, Inc. (PAMPI) and is also recognized as an accredited member-exporter of the Philippine Exporter Confederation, Inc. (Philexport).

To respond to the growing needs of the market, the Company constructed in February 1990 a Processing Plant on a seven-hectare compound in Canamucan-Cogon, Compostela which is about 26 kilometers North of Cebu City.  The new Plant started to operate in April 1992.  It is rated “AA” by the National Meat Inspection Commission (NMIC).

In January 2002, VIRGINIA FOOD, INC. was acquired by the Manila-based AVALON HOLDINGS, INC.

VFI distributes nationwide its frozen processed meat and canned meat products.  It has its Head Office on A.S. Fortuna Street in Mandaue City, Cebu and a branch office in Manila, interlinking its distribution network all over the country.
