Do you know that a single can of sardines is packed with high protein and is low in carbs? Sardines are often called the healthiest fish and they are certainly one of the most budget friendly. It is also a good source of calcium, iron and omega 3 fatty acids. That is why the American Heart Association recommends adding fatty fish to your diet at least twice a weak to help lower cholesterol levels and improve your heart’s health.
Specially created for mass market consumption, King Cup Sardines are made from fresh tam ban fish cooked in tomato sauce with just the right amount of spices. Deliciously flavorful, King Cup Sardines has a firm, meaty texture rarely found in regular sardines.
King Cup is just one of the many brands under Permex Producer and Exporter Corporation which has been around for more than 30 years. Hailing from the biggest sardine-making city in the country, Permex operates in Zamboanga, which is considered one of the biggest and efficient tuna and sardines processing plants in the country. They employ about 1500 workers and with rated capacity to process 70 metric tons of tuna and 150 metric tons of sardines per day.
“Permex takes pride in being the only Philippine fish cannery to attain a ‘Double Triple A’ rating by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans of Canada in 1991. This rare distinction has allowed the company to continue and enjoy preferential status of its products in Canada after passing the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s rigid quality management program. The company was also awarded in 1991 with the Golden Shell Award for Excellence in Export, the first fish cannery to be a recipient of this prestigious award from the Department of Trade and Industry and the Center for International Trade and Expositions and Missions”, said Eugene Yap, Chief Finance Officer.
