The Board of Directors and the entire San Miguel Group deeply mourn the passing of our Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Eduardo M. Cojuangco Jr.

For decades, ECJ guided the San Miguel Group, making a difference in the lives of so many of our employees, past and present.

Values he lived by–malasakit, and sama-sama, the idea that we either make it together or not at all—are at the heart of what it means to be San Miguel.

His contributions to our company’s history are numerous and indelible.

An agriculturalist at heart, he championed the development of rural Philippines and the setting up of our agro-industrial operations.

As SMC chairman, he guided our expansion, diversification, and transformation.

His vision for San Miguel—to be a beacon of hope for the Philippines and a partner in nation-building—remains at the core of everything we do.

His impact on many other areas of Philippine life—sports, philanthropy—add to his rich and enduring legacy.

We offer our deepest sympathies to his family and loved ones.

Salamat, Boss Danding
