Half-dried squid is a rustic dish among locals in Vietnam’s coastal regions. With favorable natural conditions, Phan Thiet squid has long been famous for its thick and deliciously fresh texture. The half-dried squid products in this region have a unique taste due to the distinctive processing methods used by the Phan Thiet people.
The product is made from bigfin reef squid caught offshore in Phan Thiet. After being fished and cleaned, the half-dried squid is dried under the sun for a day; the hotter the sun, the more delicious and soft the squid is. The squid is then packaged in bags and stored in the refrigerator until it is time for processing.
Half-dried squid in Phan Thiet seems quite dry from the outside, yet once it is processed into food, you can taste each fiber’s natural freshness, tenderness, and sweetness. Phan Thiet Seafood One Member Co., Ltd.’s product is sold in reputable supermarkets, markets, and online stores.
The journey to nominate and promote the TOP-BEST best-selling OCOP-certified products in 63 provinces and cities of Vietnam is one of the projects implemented under the strategic alliance between the Vietnam Records Organization (VietKings), the USA Records Organization (USKings) and the World Records Institute (WorldMark), with the goal of propagating and promoting the record values of countries worldwide.
