Ajinomoto Philippines Corporation organized a press conference to announce the launch of its newest product, Sarsaya® Oyster Sauce, and celebrity endorser, Mr. Coco Martin.
An OYSTRA special day with COCO MARTIN and Ajinomoto Sarsaya Oyster Sauce!
Sarsaya® Oyster Sauce is concentrated from real oysters, complete with seasonings to provide a delicious blend of savory, sweet and salty taste to any dish.
According to Pen Alvina, Ajinomoto’s Category Manager for Menu Seasonings,
“Sarsaya® Oyster Sauce is a unique brand of oyster sauce that is created to suit Filipino taste and preference, making many Filipino dishes like ginisang kangkong and adobo more flavorful and delicious.”
During the event, a live cooking demonstration and cook-off was facilitated by Chef Mcrhyan Rodrigo. Chef Mac cooked Filipino favorites Ginisarsayang Kangkong with Tokwa and his own recipe, Thai-style Stir Fried Chicken using Sarsaya® Oyster Sauce.
Guests were also invited to participate in a cook-off, where they discovered the convenience of using Sarsaya® Oyster Sauce to turn ordinary dishes extra special and flavorful. No less than the Primetime King, Mr. Coco Martin, was chosen to endorse Sarsaya® Oyster Sauce.
