Tiebreaker Times SMC pays tribute to Danding Cojuangco: 'His contributions are numerous and indelible' Basketball News PBA  San Miguel Corporation PBA Season 45 Eduardo Cojuangco Jr.

Without the vision of Ambassador Danding Cojuangco, San Miguel Corporation would not have become one of the leading businesses in the country today. 

The Board of Directors and the entire San Miguel Group thus deeply mourn the passing of the visionary, who passed away on Tuesday night at St. Lukes Medical Center.

But more than just raising a multi-billion dollar conglomerate, Cojuangco’s greatest contribution was touching the lives of so many people.

“For decades, ECJ guided the San Miguel Group, making a difference in the lives of so many of our employees both past and present. Values he lived by–malasakit, and sama-sama, the idea that we either make it together or not at all—are at the heart of what it means to be San Miguel,” read SMC’s statement.

Under his watch as chairman and CEO, SMC became more than just a beverage company. SMC would expand to other fields like food and energy, among others.

But for Cojuangco, his passion was to help the agricultural industry.

“His contributions to our company’s history are numerous and indelible. An agriculturalist at heart, he championed the development of rural Philippines and the setting up of our agro-industrial operations.

“As SMC chairman, he guided our expansion, diversification, and transformation. His vision for San Miguel—to be a beacon of hope for the Philippines and a partner in nation-building—remains at the core of everything we do,” it continued.

Though he has passed away, SMC will continue in building Cojuangco’s legacy through sports and philanthropy.

“We offer our deepest sympathies to his family and loved ones.”
