About Us

Where It All Began

On October 2000, while recovering from a Heart -Bypass Operation, our Founder Rene Jose B. Stuart del Rosario (Lolo Rene) was left with only P28,000, pots and pans, and an old assembled car. As he could no longer do business as stressful and laborious as before, our hero Lolo Rene did not allow life to beat him down. Lolo Rene stuck with his entrepreneurial spirit, and his created products based on what he knew, and using whatever he had left.
Rene Jose B. Stuart del Rosario labored in developing products previously inexistent in the market. Backed by years of experience in the restaurant and food manufacturing industry, and a natural gift of creativity, Rene was able to create unique products one after the other. His masterpiece, Suka Pinakurat™© was the break that he needed.
