Aside from lechon, Cebu is also known for its dried mangoes. These tasty treats have satisfied the sweet tooth of both locals and visitors for over three decades. They have also found their way into the homes of many households around the world. Profood International Corporation is one of the oldest dried mango manufacturers in Cebu. The company established the first Mango Museum in the country in 2012. The museum shows how dried mangoes are made from the time they are plucked out of the mango tree until they are packed for delivery.
