Although there are many successful businessmen, Bernardo Chua has taken his business acumen to a higher level by expanding over 39 countries. Formerly an executive of Gano Excel in 2003 Chua left to form Organo Gold as a network distribution system based out of Canada. Known as Bernie to those closest to him, he believes that direct marketing is the paramount way to expand a business and create partnerships with other successful people the world over.
As one of the founders of Organo Gold, he joined with Shane Morand in 2008 to form the award winning company known for its organic gourmet coffee. This unique coffee infused with Ganoderma Lucidum, an ancient Chinese herb from the mushroom family, is a healthy alternative for those who are on the go. Growing up in the Philippines with a Chinese heritage Bernie learned about the benefits of this well known mushroom that grows on logs in many parts of the world. This knowledge provided insight to the success of this herb in the Asian market which has continued for centuries and Chua formed the belief that there was also an opening in the health conscious North American market.
Bernardo Chua found direct sales to be a cost effective method of expanding his business into a global market. However forming a network distribution system to develop partnerships with other successful entrepreneurs created a means of not only expanding the company, but of sharing the wealth within the partnerships luring others to join the company. Organo Gold expects to have over one million distributors and over eight hundred million dollars in revenue in 2015, up from thirty-five million in 2010.
In 2013, Organo Gold was ranked the 55th largest network marketing company in the world by the Direct Selling News top 100 and also received the prestigious People Choice Award in 2015. Bernardo Chua himself was recently awarded the Dangal ng Bayan Award for Business and Industry from the National Consumer Affairs Foundation in the Philippines.
