Hai Giang 1 Fish Sauce Processing Craft Village Cooperative is one of Cua Lo town’s long-standing traditional craft villages for processing fish sauce.

The cooperative constantly and rigorously regulates the source of input ingredients to produce rich and delicious fish sauce. Anchovies caught in Nghe An sea are fresh and unpreserved; after removing impurities, they are mixed with salt to process ‘chượp’ (the traditional Vietnamese method of making fish source, the fish is mixed with a lot of salt, then marinated in a barrel or tank, and finally compressed).

As a result of its extraordinary flavor, high protein content, and great quality, Hai Giang 1 fish sauce was granted an exclusive trademark registration certificate by the National Office of Intellectual Property (under the Ministry of Science and Technology) and has been a typical agricultural and rural product of Nghe An province from 2014 to the present.  The product received a 3-star OCOP certification in early 2021. Hai Giang 1 fish sauce is not only famous in Vietnam, but it is also exported to Laos, Cambodia, and Thailand.

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.
