Who doesn’t love banana catsup? Sa ating mga Pinoy, ito ang partner “sawsawan” ng halos lahat ng pritong ulam o merienda kagaya ng Fried Chicken, Lumpiang Shanghai, Tortang Talong even sa pagluluto ng ating Pinoy-style Spaghetti, Menudo at ang “Catsup Sinangag”. Favorite nating lahat gamitin ang Banana Catsup.

At para i-celebrate ang Banana Catsup as Filipinos’ favourite sawsawan, NutriAsia, the country’s top condiment manufacturer, in partnership with The Mind Museum, launches “The Catsup Museum” in Cabuyao, Laguna.
And mommies, I’m sure na-kwento ko sainyo before na we’ve decided to homeschool our son this Pre-Kinder school year nya, kaya sobrang saya namin nung na-invite kami sa “The Catsup Museum” field trip last week.

Ito ang first-ever Banana Catsup Museum not only in the Philippines kundi sa buong mundo mommies.
The Catsup Museum aims to immortalize the story of banana catsup through an informative and interactive experience.

I just want to share with you mommies what’s inside the Catsup Museum:

The story of banana catsup in The Catsup Museum is revealed in four halls.
“The History of Banana Hall” traces the origins of the banana plant all the way from Kuk Valley in New Guinea around 8000 BCE.
Nakakatuwa  mommies, kasi ang banana pala ay hindi “tree” kundi isa s’yang “plant”
Na-discuss din ng tour guide ang health benefits ng banana, kaya mommies, ok ito for our kids, kasi mas magiging aware sila na kailangan nila kumain ng banana everyday.

“The Maria Orosa Hall”

Sino ba si Maria Orosa? she is the inventor of banana catsup, she invented banana catsup during the war, dahil mahal at mag-hanap ng tomato (Galing ng Tipid Hack at Resourcefulness nya) and because of her, we have a condiment we all love until today.

The third hall is the “Manufacturing Hall” it offers an immersive experience on the step by step production of commercial banana catsup.

Ang galing kasi, nagkakaroon ng idea ang mga kids paano ba ang process ng pag-gawa ng banana catsup.

And finally, the Banaquet Hall, it provides larger than life installations of food and banana catsup.
Super fun and amazed na amazed ang mga kids dito. Pang-instagram worthy feeds pa mommies (hehe).

The Museum has a lot of fun and interactive approach for kids and families to learn and immortalize the story of banana catsup.
They also have a Banana Slide and a wall wherein kids can freely color and express their creativity.

The Museum also imparts to the younger generation the significance of the timeless Filipino virtues of ingenuity, resourcefulness and hard work.

These virtues drove Filipina food technologist Maria Orosa to come up with the first banana catsup recipe, and the same virtues which propelled NutriAsia to be where it is today.

This part of the tour is Zee’s favourite, a guide showed an experiment at the Laboratory. And my curious little boy got really amazed and napaka-rami nyang tanong sa akin after he saw the experiment.

The Catsup Museum promotes not only knowledge of Philippine history and culture, but also advocate the importance of science in food manufacturing.
All visitors will bring back an even greater appreciation of Filipino food and be more proud to be Filipino.

    I’m one of those people who doesn’t like catsup. That is the reason why I don’t order a burger in the fastfood or restaurant except for the Bacon Mushroom Melt of Wendy’s. But I would love to visit this museum or I hope my son would have a field trip here.

    Nakakatuwa naman ang museum na to. I would love to take the kids there. Madali lang kaya magcommute going there? We’re not banana catsup users, but I used to love it as a kid.

  3. Janice

    I wanna take my kids here. Unfortunately, it’s only open pala for schools in Laguna. I hope they reconsider that so more people can visit.
