Norphil Healthy Foods Corporation was incorporated in 2009 and owned by Ms. Elaine VanezzaCollado. The Company was established to manufacture and market food products which include Nutricol Fruit Juice Drink (Apple and Orange 200 mL stand-up pouch). The products were initially distributed to Regions 1&2, and eventually expanded to Regions 3 & 4. The Company's processing plant is strategically located in Sta. Maria, Lal-lo, Cagayan in order to take advantage of the very high agricultural productivity of Cagayan that would provide a secured year round supply of raw materials and the northeastern seaboard's infrastructure that would provide easy access to export markets on a longer term. Another reason why the processing plant is located in this place is to bring development to this area as there are no other people or organizations that are engaged in this kind of business inspite of its very robust agricultural potential.
The company aims a world class quality food products which are manufactured by the country’s big and leading Food and Beverage manufacturing companies in terms of their quality, manufacturing and marketing strategies. Thus, the consumer preference and food safety are two of the driving factors of the firm to pursue standardization and compliance in all aspects of their operations.
CAMPI interventions through the Technology Plus Products Consultancy include: cGMP and SSOP seminars to staff & management, documentation of Food Safety Manual (Policies, Organizational Structure and Work Instruction), improvement in the process flow in cooling and batching, warehouse layout, and sanitary facilities and overall operations.

Additional investment incurred in the improvement of structure and warehouse amounted to P1.5M while upgrading of filling machine increased its production and sales by 80%.
