Sarangani Bay Bangus and the Filipinos’ love affair with the versatile milkfish

by | Feature, Food

Jul. 10, 19 | 10:07 pm

For Filipinos, one staple that never fails to bring them back wonderful remembrances of home is the humble milkfish, more popularly known in the Philippines as Bangus or milkfish.

Despite the rich seafood catch from the country’s 7,600 islands, Bangus remains a consistent favorite among various provinces and cities as well as ethnicities and cultures.

The only time local folks part ways on Bangus is how they prepare and enjoy it. Owing to its versatility, milkfish adapts well to every island’s indigenous crops and spices.

A testament to the countless ways Bangus can be prepared is Sarangani Bay’s website ‘saranganibay.com.ph‘ and Facebook page, Kusina Sarangani which probably holds the world’s largest repository of milkfish recipes.

In the site, one finds milkfish dishes that range from the traditional – such as Singang na Bangus (milkfish sour soup) and Relyenong Bangus – to the experimental Bangus Pizzettes and milkfish-filled California Maki.

Even with the wide and varied array of milkfish recipes, however, certain things must remain constant. Foremost is the quality of milkfish. Filipinos have this ability to determine whether the bangus they have is of premium quality or not.

This is why for more than three decades, Sarangani Bay Bangus, a brand that’s exclusively distributed in the UAE by Shankar Trading Company (STC), has been the preferred brand of frozen fresh milkfish among Filipinos.

The quality attached with Sarangani Bay Bangus products is no accident; it is the result of the commitment a process that brings out the best in milkfish from the time they are grown and harvested from the pristine waters of Southern Mindanao, all the way to how they are processed and transported.

Sarangani Bay Bangus is bred and cultured to perfection by family-run Alsons Aquaculture Corporation, the only fully integrated farm–to–market fish processing operation in the country. It manages its own fish hatchery, company owned and full-scale growership operations and processing plant − all in close proximity to each other. This is why it can offer customers full product traceability and end–to–end quality control, from farm to processing plant and all the way to the kitchen.

All these things working day in and day out continue to help Sarangani Bay attain and maintain a reputation for consistently high quality packaged seafood products is well known overseas.

This is why Filipinos trust Sarangani Bay whenever they crave for Bangus. After all, it is only by having premium quality milkfish can Filipinos really share to their family and friends the joy of cooking and all the wonderful memories of home that come with their favorite Bangus dishes.
