In a previous post, Plan O from Inner Space, Blythe noted that Oishi does not identify itself as a Filipino brand. This response from Oishi in Shanghai:
“Hi, I am Emily Fenix of Liwayway (China), based in Shanghai. We have an ongoing promo in China, for 100 winners to get a trip to Boracay. See our China website: www.oishi.com.cn. We have featured Boracay and Bohol separately, in our TV commercials.
“China labeling laws prohibit mention of non-China addresses.
“Thanks, Blythe, for your interest. I would presume you were or are based in China.”
