Salucop Group, Inc. is a House of Brands registered in the Philippine Securities and Exchange Commission. A family-owned business, SGI has an array of products and services across industries, a quality that reflects the group’s versatility and expertise.
Salucop Group’s first brand Basi del Diablo Wines and its variants Basi Maria, Basi Puro, Basidina, Virginia Blush, Ambaristo, and De la Bodega are based on a 1906 recipe passed down by Javier Salucop, the great grandfather of the group’s Chief Executive Officer. While the recipe is old, the group only started bottling the wines in 2013.
While mulling over putting up a brick and mortar store for Basi del Diablo, SGI CEO Sigrid Salucop and her team decided to build the Wilfred’s brand, a specialty grocery store named after Wilfred C. Salucop.
According to SGI’s finance chief Sissel Salucop, “We figured that selling just the wines won’t be cost effective as Basi del Diablo only has seven sub-brands. We always like making full use of our spaces especially on land that has been in the family for over a century.”
The first store, located right on the Mangapit-Salucop property on Taft Street in Batac, Ilocos Norte, sells a range of food products from Europe, North America, South America, Asia, and Africa.
Salucop Group, Inc. recently launched solar consultancy services under the Salucop Energy brand to help solar farm builders enter the Philippine renewable energy market. The decision came in 2018 to fulfill its promise to alleviate the effects of climate change. The group has been planting trees under its wines department as a part of its corporate social responsibility.
