Who We are

A pioneer and pillar of the Philippine banana industry, Hijo Resources Corporation (HRC), based in Madaum, Tagum City, Davao del Norte was established in 1959.

The Company, founded by the late Jose “Boy” Tuason Jr. has expanded its realm, from being a banana magnate into a successful agro-industrial, commercial and tourism corporation.

In 1998, HRC turned over its 1,324 hectare banana plantation to the Government’s Comprehensive Agrarian Reform under the Voluntary Offer to Sell Program.

In 2007, the Tuason Group bought out the shares of the Ayala Group. In the same year, SEC approved the merger of Hijo Resources Corporation, Twin Rivers Economic and Development Co., Inc, and Apo Estates Corporation.

Hijo Resources Corporation focuses on strengthening, developing, and modernizing its existing core businesses in Agriculture, Property Development, Leisure and Tourism, Foods, and Port Operations.

Today, Hijo takes quantum leap in advocating inclusive growth and sustainable transformation in the lives of its people, and communities surrounding it.

Our Logo

Reminiscent of a shark’s grills, the HRC logo symbolizes the rich marine life in Davao and specifically refers to the local shark. In Davao’s local dialect, Hijo means “shark”.

The Logo also represents three summits, symbolizing the group’s progressive movement and its unending pursuit for excellence.

Signifying HRC’s plans to develop Hijo Part Town, it also is a representation of two (2) things: a boat’s bow as it speeds forward and the corner silhouette of a builiding.
