R. Lapid Chicharon & Barbecue was founded by MR. Rey C. Lapid in 1974. It started in a small stall along R. Hidalgo in Quiapo, Manila. The founder set his goal to supply and deliver pork and chicken barbecue, longganisa, tocino and chicharon, as its main line of products to retail stores, movie houses, supermarkets, offices and bars. During that time, he was a NACIDA (National Cottage Industries Development Authority) registered as processor of food including chicharon at 485 Verdad Street Sampaloc, Manila.
After its inclusion in the file of National Library as Registered Copyright Claimant in 1996, the slogan “Laging Bagong Luto” of R. Lapid's was born. To meet the expectations of its consumers, R. Lapid's consistently serves deliciously tasty barbecue and crispy newly puffed chicharon at its best quality. The taste of the vinegar that go with the chicharon was improved by cooking and adding fresh garlic. Additional “chili” chicharon was offered to its customers and was accepted with notable commendations.
