Yu Kwen Yick Food Products Mfy Ltd – founded 1922 – chilli sauce maker, Sai Ying Pun and Aberdeen
“We’ve had shops there, there, there and here,” says Antony Yu Kai-chiu, director and general manager of chilli-sauce maker Yu Kwen Yick, as he points out various shopfronts on Third Street, in Sai Ying Pun. Yu Kwen Yick has only strayed once from Third Street – and that was for a four-year stint on nearby Second Street.
“We’ve always been in Sai Ying Pun,” says Yu. “We’ve been here since [his grandfather Yu Siu-kee’s] time and we are rooted here. I hope when people think of Sai Ying Pun, they think of us.”
The company was founded in 1922 by the elder Yu, who had come to Hong Kong from Shunde, Guangdong province.” (1)
