Sari-sari store

A sari-sari store is a convenience store found in the Philippines. The word sari-sari is Tagalog meaning "variety". Such stores form an important economic and social location in a Filipino community. It is present in almost all neighborhoods, sometimes even in every street. Most sari-sari stores are privately owned shops and are operated inside the shopkeeper's house.

Empowering Sari-Sari Stores

The Sari-Sari Stores are vital assets in the local economy. We perceive these small business people as "heroes" of the Micro-economy at the grassroots of our society

Look also HERE - Magna Kultura Foundation has been organizing outreach seminar programs designed to educate retail store owners and store-keepers with basic business skills. Most of the vendors are “un-schooled” in business enterprise management.

Best of Cebu

Mar 16, 2015


Cebu City & Manila

We source our pigs from backyard raisers all over the province, are fed 100% organic feeds a week before they are cooked to totally cleanse the pigs’ systems. "Zubuchon" is stuffed with more than a dozen herbs and spices, the pig’s skin is “acupunctured” or pricked all over, then sprayed with fresh coconut water. These processes result to a crispy and brown skin once roasted. No MSG nor soy sauce are used.
The lechon is roasted over charcoal, using bamboo poles.
ZUBUCHON is coined from the words ZUBU (Cebu's name in old Spanish maps) and LECHON
