Who we are
Our humble beginnings…
Original Biscocho Haus began in 1975 as a cottage industry of specialty food products in the Jaro, Iloilo home of the Guadarrama-Jalandoni family.
We are proud that today we have grown to offer more than biscocho to become the preferred pasalubong center in Iloilo with our wide array of favorites — butterscotch, yemas and merengue.
Our “Patadyong” Packaging
Our patadyong-inspired packaging represents our humble beginnings and timeless traditions of our Jareño roots.
Even before the Spanish colonial times, Jaro was one of the towns in Iloilo known to have a tradition for weaving “hablon” patterns in Ilonggo using handlooms. One of the most popular ways to use the versatile “hablon” fabric was as “patadyongs” that were worn by ordinary Filipino women and men as everyday skirts and bottoms. However for the Ilonggos, the “hablon” served more than this purpose — they were your ordinary indispensable items that proudly contributed to the ordinary hardworking Ilonggos’ way of life: for washing in the river, removing one’s sweat from the toil of labor, and protection from the rain and heat.
Biscocho Haus is proud to have come from long hours of honest hard work and perseverance to continuously come up with quality products accessible to all of our customers. We will continue to look back and celebrate where we came from and how far we have come.
