Sanlit Spread is a homemade peanut butter which originally came from Noveleta, Cavite. It is manufactured by Ms. Susan Tenorio, a registered mid-wife and former caregiver from Manila and Hongkong. She started out her peanut butter business with just a capital of 500 php and a packaging of what we call ‘palengke jar’ – the usual peanut butter packaging. Sociable by nature, Ms. Tenorio used to walk around with her paninda in crowded areas of Rosario like Pandawan, Sapa, Wawa and Julugan in Tanza just to check people’s blood pressure in exchange for 5 php.

One time, as she went to the market, she caught sight of the signage of Negosyo Center-Noveleta and decided to inquire inside for business opportunities. Through the Business Counsellor, she was told about the upcoming trade fair at SM City Rosario from 4-8 October 2017. She eagerly responded to the invitation and joined the trade fair. For her, it was a good experience. The event served as a big opportunity for her product to be recognized and a big step to widen her market.

Last 3 January 2018, she finally registered her business with DTI. Through the assistance of DTI-Cavite and LGU Noveleta, Ms. Tenorio was able to attend series of trainings like How to Start a Business, Online Marketing, Marketing Strategies and Selling Techniques, Basic Bookkeepping and Basic Food Safety. During the interview, she mentioned “Sa tuwing may frustrations talaga, matututo tayo”. That’s when she said she applies what she learned from the trainings and seminars she attended. Negosyo Center-Noveleta provided additional assistance by referring her to PCLEDO for their free labeling design.

Enthusiastic about continuously expanding her market, Ms. Tenorio never lets a good opportunity to pass.  In fact, last 15-19 July 2019, she exhibited their product at the Cavite MSMEs Trade Fair and Exhibit held at The Ark by UNIONBANK, Makati City.           From 10-20 jars, they’re now producing 50-70 jars a day. With the help of her husband, they’re now delivering in some areas in Laguna. From the usual peanut butter, they also offer coco jam and yema spread.
