Guinayangan is one of the
municipalities in Quezon Province exporting
dried fish (tuyo and bislad) and also of smoked
fish (tinapa). Barangay Manlayo produces
much of these and their products reach as far as
Batangas, Cavite and Metro Manila. Dried
fish in Guinayangan is famous for its delicious
taste and good quality compared to others
producing the same.
The municipality is also
proud of the Bangus in Oil product of Arbismen
Sipag at Tiyaga Multi Purpose Cooperative (ASTMPC)
in Barangay Arbismen. Their bottled
product won the nationwide search for the Best
ARC Products for 2002 held at SM Megamall.
ASTMPC is now supplying stores outside the
municipality with their Bangus in Oil.
Its delicious taste made special with a little
hot and spicy flavor made it unique and
different with other home-made processed fish
Still, Guinayangan's agricultural produce such as
copra, palay, banana, corn, root crops, legumes
and fruits comprise almost 70%
of the whole industry of the municipality. Animal raising like
swine, poultry and livestock is also becoming a
good source of
livelihood for the barangay
Other small backyard industries
present in Guinayangan are handicraft making,
sawali making, soap-making and bottled vinegar.
In the future, processing of
bottled bagoong and patis will push through.
This seems very feasible particularly since the
beginning of operation of the Municipal Fish Port and the proposed
Construction of Ice Plant is getting more
positive affirmation from the Department of
Agriculture - Philippine Fishery and Development Authority (DA-PFDA).
