He attended the University of Santo Tomas which is in the Philippines. After earning his bachelor’s degree he started working as a purchasing agent in the business his extended family owns. He says it was rough working with his older brothers and sisters so he quickly started looking for opportunities of employment elsewhere and decided upon entering the direct-marketing industry.
How Bernardo Chua differentiates his company from other premium manufacturers of beverages is that his products contain a Chinese herb called Ganoderma lucidum. This is known as “King of the Herbs” and helps people in a number of ways. It gives people a natural vitality and is part of Organo Gold’s weight loss and maintenance kits. He says that they source this from organic Reishi which is grown in China’s Fuzhou region, on logs way up in the peaks of the Wuyi Mountains.
As a philanthropist, Bernardo Chua started the OG Cares Foundation. This organization provides low-income children with the resources and tools they need to find success in life. They have helped children around the world including in the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Philippines, and China.
