WN Foods has been in business since 1942. That’s 76 years worth of happy moments and fun times with our family and our loyal partners! We know it’s hard to pick favorites, but let’s take a look at some of our staff’s most fond memories.
Bernadette: “I always enjoy creating new sauces: starting from scratch, sourcing new concepts and required ingredients, making bench top samples, and testing product specifications to make sure they achieve the product’s safety and also sensory tasting to achieve the best quality, of course. However, the absolute best moments for me are looking at people’s face as they enjoy the sauces I create. I was very happy to have the opportunity to create more than 20 sauces for ECRM Private Brand Food Show event in 2015 – I remember one of the happiest moments was when I found out that one of the sauces (Thai Red Curry) I made got picked as the winner, and WN Foods was honored with 2015 Buyer’s Taste Award.”
Linda: “My best moment at WN Foods is when I received a big gold coin for my 30 years services anniversary award from the company. This award will always remind me of the company’s appreciation.”
Gregory: “One of the great moments (of many) that I remember is when we had a production issue and the customers truck was waiting at our dock to pick up the product. The original estimate was that it would take a week solve the problem and have the product ready to ship. The customer couldn’t wait that long, so the entire WN team came together to fix the problem in 24 hours. Every person from every department volunteered to help and worked as a team to meet the needs of the customer. The customer received their product on time and I was never more proud of the entire WN staff.”
Kiana: “My favorite moment at WN Foods was the 70th anniversary party. We held a big party with all our friends and family where we got to enjoy fresh meals from food trucks, impressive lion dances, and heartfelt speeches from our staff. It was really touching, and I’ll always remember it.”
Hanh: “Every year, we always look forward to the WN Foods annual Christmas party. One of my favorite moments is the Christmas party of 2016 when Kiana pulled my name from the drawing box to win a TV, and Gregory thought Kiana and I worked together to rig the drawing.”
Peter: “My favorite moment at WN Foods would be lunch time of everyday. We get to wind down, sit and discuss about anything whether it be about our family issues, if we gained weight, jokes, etc. Sometimes all the female workers talk about their womanly issues like I am not there (laughs).”
Margaret: “In 2014, we had an event to celebrate Jon’s retirement. Prior to the event, countless hours were poured into planning by the whole office as well as the operations crew. Team members prepared every detail during office hours and over the weekends with nothing but smiles and best efforts. True teamwork was at play for this celebration with 200 friends & colleagues & business partners. On the day of the event, what we witnessed were all the happy memories of an devoted employee who have given 30 years of service to the company, and what he got in return was all the love and life long friendship by the peers and suppliers and clients. But most of all, the deep appreciation and heart felt love from the owner’s family. That, to me, is priceless and that’s what sets this company apart from many other business. It’s got soul. Therefore, it has been and always be one of my favorite moments of my years in this big family.”
