About Mama Sita
Mama Sita’s® is a legacy that spans five generations of fine Filipino cuisine. Teresita “Mama Sita” Reyes, the woman who inspired the pioneering line of Filipino sauces and spice blends, had a vision to bring Filipino flavors to the world.
During her frequent vacations abroad, Mama Sita felt sorry for the many overseas Filipinos and their children who ate hamburgers and hot dogs daily, especially in the United States.
She worried that these children would grow up unable to enjoy Filipino cuisine due to the lack of necessary ingredients and the tedious way of preparing it.
She then inspired and pushed her daughter and son-in-law to develop products to meet this need. Thus, the Mama Sita’s® range of food mixes and sauces was born.
Beginning as a mix of kare-kare (peanut sauce), a difficult-to-prepare Filipino dish, and into a cottage industry operating in the family’s ancestral home, the Mama Sita’s® line of mixes and sauces has become a class recognition world, now produced in a modern facility.
Mama Sita’s® has always believed in strict adherence to global food safety standards, combined with a rich culinary heritage and respect for natural ingredients.
