Our Philosophy


In today’s crowded supermarkets with their thousands of products, we stand out by offering simplicity. Our products are easy to recognize, simple to prepare and simply delicious.


Authenticity is the key. Our focus is the content, not the packaging. We don’t go in for complicated packaging, just a clear and simple package that shows our product. We want our customers to know what they're buying, that's our commitment to authenticity. Authenticity can mean different things to different people, but for us, authenticity means it is the real taste. 


We pride ourselves in surpassing our customers’ expectations. We aim to provide delicious meals that they can enjoy quickly and conveniently – and also at the best possible price. Taste and convenience are crucial, but the product will only be enjoyable if customers really feel they have got their money's worth.

Our Heritage

Plaza Foods was founded 20 years ago by the Chang brothers as a subsidiary of Europe’s largest complex of Oriental restaurants: Orient Plaza. We are a family-owned company that specializes in Oriental cuisine. In 2005, we opened our state-of-the-art production facility in Wijchen, the Netherlands. Here we can implement the art of authentic cooking in a modern production environment that receives the highest level certificate of BRC and IFS every year. Hence, the result is a handmade product. 

In 2006 we also added a range of Italian products. Our years of experience in Oriental cuisine, combined with our experienced production and development team, has brought us many successes. In fact, today we are the largest producers of authentic ethnic foods in Northern Europe.
