The ANP humble beginning was traced back sometime in 1980's when 14 Negrense housewives and a gentleman organized themselves to form an association of Negros producers of locally made products to properly address the ill effects of sugar crisis that greatly affected the Negros economy for that period of time, and 5 years later conducted the first trade fair in Manila with the hope to economically survive the said sugar crisis.
Well for such 26 years of business trade fair, the ANP products have gained people's acceptance not only from their fellow Filipinos but from the foreigners as well.
