Homegrown brand Delimondo is well known for its corned beef and other food items.

Over the years, netizens have been calling to boycott it. Probably, due to the affiliation of Enrile with the Marcoses.

On Facebook, Katrina Ponce-Enrile pleads with the netizens to not drag their company into the political scene.

“Delimondo is known for their corned beef, but we do have other products equally as good as our corned beef. Can we not make this political. I created Delimondo. My family name just happened to be Ponce Enrile,” she wrote.

Meanwhile, Juan Ponce Enrile, 98, has been in the government service for 50 years. He became an assemblyman, congressman, senator, and senate president.

  1. Why boycott the product when the product itself is being enjoyed by fun loving beef lovers like me here in the Philippines. It did not caused harm to those who patronized it. It’s totally absurd that it has something to do with politics either.

  2. This is a perfect example of what’s wrong with “Cancel Culture” – let merit meet its own destiny. Conspiracy theorists can connect dotted lines to anything absurd they fancy.
