Company Profile

The Tien Chu (Hong Kong) Company Limited was founded in 1929 by the famous industrialist Mr Wu Yun Chu. The manufacturing factory established in To Kwa Wan, Kowloon in 1937, was a pioneer in Hong Kong's seasoning and chemical industry and the only MSG manufacturing factory in Hong Kong even until today. In 1981, when the Shanghai Industrial Investment (Holdings) Company Limited was established in Hong Kong, Tien Chu became a subsidiary of the Group. Nowadays, the Group has developed into an integrated enterprise with diversified business covering real estate, financial investment and food manufacturing.

It has made remarkable achievements over the past century, commended as a label representative of Chinese national industries and one of the vanguards of Hong Kong's industrial brands.
