Preserving Tradition, Crafting Excellence: The Legacy of Kecap Tawon

In the quaint town of Madiun, lies a hidden gem of culinary heritage – Kecap Tawon. Established in 1940 by a pioneering immigrant couple from Fu Qing, China, this traditional soy sauce manufacturer has been preserving time-honored recipes and crafting exceptional flavors for over eight decades.

What sets Kecap Tawon apart is its unwavering commitment to quality and authenticity. With just three simple ingredients – soy, salt, and water – the artisans at Kecap Tawon embark on a journey of natural fermentation that spans approximately eight months, producing the foundation of Kecap Tawon’s soy sauce. And unlike mass-produced alternatives, Kecap Tawon eschews the use of preservatives, opting instead to rely on traditional techniques and wisdom.

At the heart of Kecap Tawon’s offerings are its Salty Soy Sauce (Kecap cap Koki) and Sweet Soy Sauce (Kecap cap Tawon). The Salty Soy Sauce, derived from the base soy sauce produced through natural fermentation, boasts a rich umami flavor that enhances a myriad of dishes, from stir-fries to marinades.

Meanwhile, the Sweet Soy Sauce, a beloved staple in Indonesian cuisine, is a testament to Kecap Tawon’s craftsmanship. By infusing the base soy sauce with high-quality palm and brown sugar, Kecap Tawon creates a symphony of flavors – sweet, savory, and subtly nuanced with hints of umami, pairing seamlessly with both Chinese and Indonesian culinary delights.


Now, Kecap Tawon’s footprint extends beyond the confines of Madiun, reaching discerning consumers through Pantry Magic. Renowned for its commitment to quality and curated products, Pantry Magic serves as the perfect showcase for Kecap Tawon’s artisanal soy sauce.
