Bernardo Chua grew up in the Philippines. As he grew up in Asia and is of Chinese descent, he learned early on in his life about Ganoderma, a type of polypore mushroom that grows on logs. Ganoderma has been used in Asia for centuries as an herbal remedy for a variety of illnesses. His career has been built around Ganoderma and including it in the products that he has sold.
In 1999, Bernardo co-founded Gano Excel Philippines where he sold teas and coffees that contained Ganoderma. He was also the company’s General Manager. Mr. Chua decided to sell his products through multi-level marketing techniques. This involves a network of independent contractors who sell the company’s products face-to-face.
This proved to be a very successful model and Bernardo Chao quickly founded another company, Gano Excel International, that sold his products overseas. Learn more about Bernardo Chua: https://www.businessforhome.org/2011/12/organo-gold-review-2012/
In 2003, Bernardo moved to Los Angeles, California and founded Gano Excel USA and served as President of the company. He continued selling teas and coffees with Ganoderma in them, introducing this herbal supplement to North America. He successfully ran this company for five years.
It was in 2008 that Mr. Chua moved to Richmond, BC and started his current company, Organo Gold. At Organo Gold he continues to sell coffees and teas that contain Ganoderma as well as toothpaste and other products. Like the Gano Excel companies, Organo Gold’s products are sold through multi-level marketing and a network of sales agents.
The company has been very successful since it was founded and now has over one million independent contractors selling its products around the world. Bernardo Chua credits part of this success to opening Organo Gold in Canada, which is known for its strict guidelines under which companies operate.
Chau’s business achievements have garnered him a number of awards. Among the ones he is most proud of is the Dangal ng Bayan Award for Business and Industry that was awarded to him by the Philippines. This award is given to those Filipino who have released products that have been met with huge international success.
