San Miguel Yamamura Packaging Corporation (SMYPC), then San Miguel Packaging Products, traces its roots to the opening of the first brewery in the Philippines, La Fabrica de Cerveza de San Miguel, in 1890 to answer the need for packaging containers in the beer, dairy products, and carbonated drink businesses of San Miguel Corporation.

From there, SMYPC has expanded its business to provide not only glass packaging products but other formats like metal, paper, composites, plastics, and PET requirements to a wide variety
of industries, including the beverage, food, pharmaceutical, industrial, personal & household care industries. 

 

SMYPC has also evolved to provide packaging services like Package Research & Testing, Creative Solutions, PET Recycling, Contract Filling, Trading, Distributorship, and other Logistical Services.

As SMYPC's product portfolio and clientele expanded, it has also expanded its market reach spreading to as far as Southeast Asia, Australia, Middle East, Africa, United States and Europe.
