It later received several gold and silver medals.
Victoria, a brownish apple and caramel flavor, is born. This drink, known today as SELECTO is part of the Algerian identity heritage.
Boualem Hammoud, Youssef's grandson, registered the trademark and changed the name of the company from «Hamoud &Sons» to «Hamoud Boualem & Cie». It was then, that the company moved to Hassiba Ben Bouali Street, now the company’s headquarters.
