Bagoong Factory

Bagoong Factory is among the top manufacturers of Lingayen bagoong. This type of bagoong is dubbed as the best of its kind in the Philippines.

Bagoong is a fundamental component of Filipino cooking as it is used as a condiment. It is usually paired with singkamas, green mangoes, and dishes like Pinakbet and Kare-Kare.

 

What is Bagoong

Bagoong is made by combining measured amounts of fish and brine, which are traditionally left to ferment between ten to twelve months until it produces bubbles and its distinct pungent odor. This product is made initially from only several types of fish such as monamon, padas, and ipon.

The monamon or anchovies used in the process are usually about two inches long. The mixture is fermented adequately in pottery for a fixed amount of time. The final output is then bottled and sold to consumers. Some producers even sell boneless Bagoong.
