Today, on-trend Asian flavors pop up on menus of every segment, menu part and price-point! Nearly 40% of consumers say their last global dish was Asian influenced. ¹ Where people go, flavor follows – in 2020 the fastest growing population was Asian, growing by 36% in the last 10 years, according to the US census. ² That growth will likely influence future food trends toward Asian food and ingredients!
THE FLAVOR IS KEE

UMAMI has seen +23% growth on menus in the last 4-years! One of the easiest ways to deliver on Umami is using a Chinese Style Soy Sauce. The difference? A full-bodied flavor and strong soybean aroma. Chinese Style Soy Sauces ferment under sunlight anywhere from 3 to 6 months. Rather than stabilizing the tempearture we let mother nature take control, resulting in a soy sauce that offers complexity in marinades, dips, and much more. As the saying goes, all good things take time.
