Our G-lock Freshness Policy
Gardenia is the first bread brand in the country to use the G-lock, a resealable and reusable plastic clip located around the neck of a Gardenia bag to seal in the bread’s freshness.
It also serves as a reference for consumers, containing vital information about the Gardenia bread, such as the suggested retail price, expiration date, and batch traceability.
More importantly, Gardenia’s G-lock system is a 7-day color guide to freshness referring to the day the bread was produced:
By pioneering the use of G-locks, Gardenia guarantees the freshness of every Gardenia bread in supermarkets and other retailers.
Our HALAL Policy
We, at Gardenia Bakeries Philippines, commit that our products, ingredients, processes and facilities are in accordance with HALAL requirements and standards that comply with statutory and regulatory requirements.

Moving to the Future: Paving the way for Gardenia’s Continued Success
Gardenia Philippines pioneered a unique distribution system, ensuring that only fresh bread reach consumers everyday. Gardenia strictly follows its international policy of keeping only fresh stocks on the store shelves. As soon as products come out of the factory, delivery trucks leave the production plant as early as 4 o’clock in the morning to bring the products to specific locations in the country. Each delivery day, every unsold bread is replaced with a freshly baked batch of top quality bread – a Gardenia practice that is unmatched in the industry.
This combination of superior product quality, advanced bread-making technology and extensive distribution system reflect the consumer-oriented vision of Gardenia Philippines of bringing consumers the highest level of product satisfaction.
