History

King Asia Foods is a family-owned food manufacturer, established in 1985 by Kin Him Fong and the Fong family.

We have been making and serving Chinese food since the 1950’s, when the Fong family owned a pub restaurant in Hong Kong, and served British servicemen Chinese curries and other oriental dishes.

In the 1960’s, the Fong family moved to the UK, and subsequently opened the first Chinese restaurant in Worksop, Nottinghamshire, serving many of the dishes that had been served to British servicemen back in Hong Kong.

After many successful years in the restaurant trade, Kin Him decided that serving the British public within the family restaurant was not fulfilling his ambitions.

In 1985 Kin Him and his brother Jimmy, established the company to offer the British public food that they would eat and enjoy themselves. At the beginning, Chinese sauces were made for the retail market, and it didn’t take long before the company began to grow by securing deals with major frozen food retailers.

By the early 1990’s, So Him Fong had joined the company as Managing Director, to push the company further forward. So Him quickly secured new business and helped the company diversify into the food service sector, whilst overseeing the company's expansion which included securing the new 50,000 sq ft site from which it currently operates.

Today, King Asia is a company on the up, having secured some major contracts, notably supplying into the NHS and British Universities. With the Fong brothers driving the company forward, and a blend of youth and experience within the company, King Asia strives to be a leading quality-driven food manufacturer within the retail and foodservice sectors.
