This year, Solane made more efforts to point out how important kitchen safety is by bringing the brand to the streets, nonetheless, to the happiest gatherings in the country, the fiestas.

From the kitchen to the streets, expect the country’s top LPG solutions provider Solane to campaign on the importance of safety during this year’s most colorful festivals.

“In a country where there’s always a fiesta somewhere, Solane made it a point to be present at these festivals that present a great opportunity to spread our advocacy of safety in the kitchen. Because truth be told, what happens in the kitchen doesn’t only affect one’s residence but also the neighborhood,” said Isla LPG Corp. chief executive officer Ruben Domingo.

Solane has started spreading awareness by joining parades of recent festivals honoring Sto. NiƱo—Cebu’s Sinulog Kalibo’s Ati-Atihan and Iloilo City’s Dinagyang Festival. Solane joined the merrymaking through its eye-catching floats, while showcasing its effective service, and safe, high-quality LPG to its customers.

These included the first-of-its-kind safety cap, which completely plugs the gas to prevent leaks before installing the tank with a hose, the seal that carries a serial number to protect Solane customers from illegal LPG refillers and the Solane Authenticity Checker on Facebook, which verifies if the tank came from a licensed Solane dealer.

There’s also the Hatid-Bahay service, where every Solane LPG delivery guarantees a 7-point safety sheck of the LPG system by the company’s well-trained riders. Residents outside Metro Manila can now order Solane LPG conveniently for their fiesta needs by going online at or sending SMS to its nationwide textline 0918-8875555. 

During the festivals, Solane also took the opportunity to offer sales promotion activities in Cebu and Aklan and gave out branded merchandise. The success of Solane’s safety campaign in the Visayas is credited to the enriching relationship of Solane provincial executives with its local distributors. These were made possible by Isla LPG Corp. VisMin sales manager Rene Gamba, VisMin packed team; ILC Cebu POE Geraldine Indangan, Cebu VisMin Supply Chain team; and partner distributors Cebu Gazland Enterprises, Jet Sales Corporation, Quickway Gas Center, Marianing & Sons, Fabson Inc.

True to its commitment to innovate and care for its customers, Solane is persistent in advocating safety, may it be an ordinary day at home, a red-letter day or during fiestas.

Stock Investment Program (SIP) Benefits Against Your Money In The Bank

If you are the one budgeting your money in the family and you were able to have some savings in your pocket, the first thing you think of doing to that savings is to put them in your bank. Actually, there is an alternative of making your money bigger other than letting it sleep in the bank.

Instead of just depositing money in a bank, which has low returns, Philippine stocks are a stable long-term investment, given that the economy has been performing well and that inflation is projected to be low in 2015, says Lexter Azurin, Head of Research at UTrade, the online securities brokerage of Unicapital Securities, Inc. (USI). He continues, “To accommodate Filipinos’ needs for a convenient investment service, we created a unique program that they can invest in over the long term, called SIP.”

SIP or UTrade’s Stock Investment Program uses a peso-cost averaging strategy, in which a fixed amount is invested over the long term at regular intervals on a particular stock. Since this does not rely on the current purchase price of a given stock, the cumulative average of the investment will result in a profit in the long run.

The four-step UTrade SIP process is simple. First, choose from UTrade’s recommended basket of stocks. Second, determine how much to invest, starting with as low as P5,000. Third, decide on the frequency of investments, which can be weekly, monthly, quarterly, or semi-annually. Fourth, identify your long-term goal and determine how long the investment will last.

To make it even more convenient, UTrade will send an email before the next trade to remind clients of their upcoming transaction. For more information on how to invest, visit and like
