ABOUT VIA MARE
The Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) has the Via Mare Corporation as its exclusive professional food caterer/concessionaire to provide the banqueting requirements of the Center and its clients. Backed by more than 34 solid years of experience, it has since grew and continue to be a frontrunner in the restaurant and catering industry.
Via Mare Corporation operates the Amorsolo, a fine dining restaurant located at the second floor of the PICC Secretariat Building and the PICC Cafeteria which are open daily from Mondays to Fridays at 11:00 am to 2:00 p.m.
As the exclusive caterer for the Center, Via Mare to this day, provides impeccable cuisine and unparalleled service to notable men and women of the country’s political and socials scene. It is the name behind the historic feasts during the 1996 APEC Summit, the 2008 Special Non-Aligned Movement Ministerial Meeting on Interfaith Dialogue and Cooperation for Peace, and other government-initiated events which were all held at the PICC. The same can be said of every major political, social and cultural affairs — the Papal visit, Ms. Universe Pageant, the Inter Parliamentary Union (IPU) Conference , Global Forum on Migration and Development and a host of other national and international events.
Via Mare’s participation in world expositions and international food festivals also gave Philippine cuisine its long-awaited global recognition. In PICC, every memorable wedding, birthday and anniversary of illustrious Filipino families –from intimate dinners to grand scale banquets – bore the Via Mare stamp of excellent food and service. So much so that the Via Mare became synonymous to the phrase Of Splendid cuisine and fond memories. It could very well be said that Via Mare is a part of this country’s history and culture.
