A Day In The Life Of A WN Foods Sauce

WN Sweet Sour.jpg

As you take your bite of sweet & sour chicken, you are greeted with a bright burst of flavor. The crispy, savory chicken works in perfect harmony with the smooth tanginess of our Longevity Sweet & Sour Sauce. You start to wonder how something so incredibly delicious came to be at your restaurant table.

Luckily, WN Foods is here to satisfy your curiosity! Let’s take a look at a day in life of our sauces.

Cooking

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

We ship our sauces in carefully-wrapped cases out to a wide range of clients. Whether it’s restaurants, grocery stores, or other industrial food companies, we make sure their orders reach them quickly and safely.

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!

WN Foods Summer BBQs

In this cold winter, we can’t help but miss summer, especially because of our special WN Foods tradition: summer BBQs!

Every month between June and September, the WN Foods family comes together to throw a BBQ where EVERYONE is invited. The party space is decked out in colorful flowers and decorations, food is grilled fresh, and people mingle happily. Sometimes there are even food trucks, live music, and lion dancers!

One of the best parts of this BBQ traditions is the raffle. At each BBQ, everyone draws a raffle ticket in hopes of winning various prizes. These prizes range from small things like bags of rice and gift cards to big things like video game consoles and cameras. Even if you don’t win anything, it’s always fun to participate in the suspense and celebration!

Although we feel like a family year-round, events like these really help us learn about each other and strengthen our bonds. Do you have any traditions like these in your life? Let us know in the comments!

Dumplings: The Universal Language Of Food

Dumplings of the World.png

At their base, dumplings are just dough wrapped around a filling, yet every region of the world has its own unique version of them. Why are they loved by so many around the globe? Is it because they’re easy to make? Is it because they keep you warm in winter? Or is it simply because they’re downright delicious? Whatever the reason, dumplings are the universal language of the food world, and we want to be fluent. Let’s educate ourselves on a few different variations!

Europe

Dumplings Europe

Among European dumplings, the potato is king. Whether it’s pierogi from Poland, gnocchi from Italy, or kroppkakor from Sweden, almost all of them feature dough with a mashed potato filling along with meat or cheese. Not that we’re complaining; after all, if you want something hot and hearty, it’s hard to go wrong with potatoes.

Africa

Dumplings Africa

Dumplings from Africa don’t always include a filling, but they’re still sure to fill you up. Madombi from Botswana and banku and kenkey from Ghana are all doughy dumplings made from flour or cornmeal, often served with fragrant soup, sauce, or meat. We don’t know about you, but we’re absolutely fascinated by all the different flavor combinations you could create with these dumplings.

South America

Dumplings SA

South America is all about meaty dumplings. Coxinhas, empanadas, and papas rellenas are all dough pockets filled to the brim with juicy chicken, pork, and beef. These dumplings are massively popular from Brazil to Argentina to Colombia, and it’s not hard to see why. Just looking at those photos is enough to work up an appetite!

Oceania

Dumplings Oceania

Oceania’s dumplings are pretty different, but trust us when we say that they’re all delicious. Hawaii loves manapua (steamed buns), Tonga loves faikakai (coconut caramel dumplings), and New Zealand loves boil up (doughy dumplings with vegetables in pork stock). They all have exquisite taste, don’t you think?

Asia

Dumplings Asia

Asia is so crazy about dumplings that almost every Asian country has its own type of dumpling. We can’t fit all of them in here, so we chose a few of our favorites: xiao long bao (soup dumplings) from China, samosas (fried potato dumplings) from India, and gyoza (potstickers) from Japan. That last one tastes pretty great dipped in our Double Hi Potsticker Sauce, just so you know!

We’ve expanded our dumpling vocabulary, and now it’s time to try them in real life. Which one will you eat first? Let us know in the comments!

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.

Up next… Chapter 7: The 1990s!
