Soy sauce produced in the mini-industry based in the Cuba-China Friendship Farm, belonging to the Min Chih Tang Society, is one of the products found in hotel restaurants in the northern keys, off Ciego de Avila province.
The president of that Asian community, Luis Chang, told Prensa Latina that the small factory is the only one in Cuba that produces the traditional Chinese marinade, which is registered under the Muisán brand.
The sauce has good quality and is very rich in flavor. Its preparation is based on the fermentation of soybeans, a crop grown in the fertile lands in the region of Ceballos area, he said.
They currently market the product in retail chain stores, in several hotels in Jardines del Rey and in Chinese restaurants nationwide, Chang said.
Soy sauce, one of the traditional products in Chinese cuisine, is widespread in Cuban cuisine, due to the peculiar aroma it impregnates to domestic food.
Its production in Cuba is very important for the economy, because Cuba imports it from China, Vietnam and some European countries.
