Cooking

DSCF0236.jpg

Our sauce recipes are either from our clients or developed by our lab. Once we have a perfect recipe, our cooking department whips up the sauces with the finest ingredients and care, always following top safety standards. The cooking time varies depending on the sauce, but as soon as they’re ready, it’s time for the next step: quality assurance!

Quality Assurance

DSCF0311.jpg

Samples from each batch of sauce are taken and meticulously analyzed in our quality assurance lab to ensure they’re both safe and exactly as the client asked. They’re tested on things like pH, salt, Brix, water activity, viscosity, and others. If all the requirements are met, then it’s time for packing.

Packing

The packing process at WN Foods is completely automated with cutting-edge technology so that our products will always be consistently packed and sealed. We pack sauces in bottles and portion packs (the packets you’re probably familiar with, like our Double Hi Soy Sauce packets). Our packing department also takes samples of each case to make sure that there are no defects. We want only the most flawless sauces for our customers!

Shipping

3 Easy Asian Fusion Recipes

Thanks to airplanes and the Internet, globalization is on the rise. Food cultures clash and combine, and sometimes form entirely new genres as a result. Asian fusion food is one of the most prominent examples of this; it takes traditionally Asian ingredients and incorporates them into other famous dishes like burritos, tacos, and pizza. Sounds great, right? Let’s look at a few recipes for homemade Asian fusion food!

Sushi Burrito

If you live in a major US city, you may have seen sushi burritos on the news. Restaurants serving these jumbo maki rolls had lines of around entire city blocks because people just couldn’t get enough. Don’t worry though, you no longer have to wait in line. Sushi burritos are actually quick and easy to make at home! We recommend this recipe from Spoon University with our Double Hi Soy Sauce.

Ginger Chicken Tacos

Ginger chicken is common in Chinese and Thai dishes, and is great when eaten in a taco shell with fresh vegetables. It’s nutritious and packed with complex flavors, but it’s quite simple to prepare! Just follow this recipe from Well Plated and you’ll be ready for taco night in no time.

Thai Chicken Pizza

We know that peanut sauce on pizza sounds strange, but trust us and the many other fans of this pizza when we say that it’s a match made in heaven. The crunchy vegetables, creamy peanut sauce, and tender chicken all sitting on a golden brown pizza crust… what more could you ask for? Check out this recipe from What’s Gaby Cooking to try Thai chicken pizza for yourself!

The History of WN Foods: Chapter 6

WN History 80s(Dave Hall at WN Foods)

The 1980s were a time of growth and new partnerships for WN Foods. Chinese food was becoming more and more mainstream to American tastes, and major players in the food industry took notice of this. When Dave Hall formed partnerships to create Asian sauce brands such as House of Tsang and Sun Luck, they were picked up and sold in grocery chains countrywide. More than 40 years after its founding, WN Foods was busier than ever, co-packing up a storm and forging new relationships wherever it did business. It was the epitome of prosperity and longevity.

The History of WN Foods: Chapter 5

WN History 70s(WN Foods celebrating Miss Chinatown)

Dave Hall breathed new life into WN Foods in the 1970s. He split his time working as a pharmacist and getting to know the company. Naturally business-minded and determined to honor his father’s legacy, Dave picked up the ropes quickly; he was eager and had many new ideas for promoting and expanding WN Foods. He and John Young began connecting with more business owners, investing in co-packing equipment, and stayed involved with the Chinese-American community. It soon became clear that WN Foods had again grown too large for its location, and it needed facilities that would better suit its ever increasing manufacturing needs. After moving the company to a larger building in San Francisco, John retired, feeling confident in WN Foods’ future with Dave.
