Amoy Canningwas founded over 110 years ago when the 5th son of our founder, Ng Teng Guan, died of typhoid which was carried by contaminated water, including soya sauce which is not cooked but is used for dipping food in. Concerned about food safety and security for the rest of his family, Ng Teng Guan developed hygienic, home-made soya sauce for his family and friends, which later led to the founding of the company.
Founded in Amoy (Xiamen) in China in 1908, the company first became popular for its home-made recipes of soya sauce and other related products.
Amoy Canning then expanded and started a factory in Singapore in 1951, in Malaysia in 1955, and ventured into Australia in 1994. In Singapore, new local flavoured quality products like Curry Chicken quickly became favourites. Amoy Canning relocated its factory to Chin Bee Avenue in Jurong in 1994 and in 2016, moved to its current premises in Bukit Batok.
