Don’t let the pandemic stop your cravings. Be #UnBASTAPpable, order online now.
TheBastap, one of Cebu north’s favorite homegrown native delicacy brands, is going online with its new look and packaging to better serve loyal patrons and potential customers anywhere in the world amid the pandemic.
“People don’t have to go to Carmen to enjoy our products. We’re making our traditionally-made delicacies available online so anyone who’s craving for them can order anytime, anywhere. We don’t want our native delicacy lovers get stopped by the pandemic, instead we want them to be #UnBASTAPpable in enjoying our products,” said CGBarro Food Chain CEO Charo Gutierrez Barro.!
Located in Carmen, TheBastap started as a popular bus stopover for passengers from and to the north of Cebu in 2012, hence its name. It became one of the popular stopovers where people can eat and buy native delicacies such as pasalubong.
Today, as government units restrict most travels due to the pandemic, TheBastap opens a product hub or branch in Cebu City to serve as a central pick-up point of online orders in Metro Cebu and other parts of the world as they place their products on Lazada, Shopee, and own e-Commerce site, TheBastap.com.
In fact, the brand has already received orders from New York and Canada through their Facebook business page.
