A new project based in Kawit, Cavite, Candilicious Sweet Shop Food Products produces chocolates, polvoron and pastillas with a volume of 900 packs per month valued at PhP50,000. In 2003, the owner, Mr. Almerick Jacob, was awarded one of the 10 Most Outstanding Entrepreneurs in the province of Cavite.

DOST through SETUP, provided a financial assistance of PhP0.5M which was released December 2009 for the acquisition of modern equipment (moulds, freezer, shrink wrap machine and worktables) to upgrade production capacity. Early this year, PSTC-Cavite conducted technology needs assessment to determine the specific S&T interventions which the firm needs.

The project aims to improve product presentation to high-end customers through the introduction of appropriate packaging and product labeling, generate additional income and increase market opportunities.
