Chen Shin Food Factory: Canned Vegetarian Food Veteran and Leader
With about 10% of the world population following one of the many forms of a vegetarian diet, the offering of healthy yet delicious vegetarian products is crucial. Furthermore, more and more people are choosing to follow a plant-based diet, thus increasing the demand for long shelf-life meatless options.
Operating since 1965, Chen Shin Food Factory Co. Ltd is a leading manufacturer of vegetarian canned goods. The company had humble beginnings, first selling canned bamboo shoots, asparagus, and water chestnuts under the brand Giant and eventually expanding to dozens of vegetarian products after diligently studying healthy vegan recipes.
A Vegetarian Feast
Chen Shin offers more than 30 products, ranging from vegetables and various imitation meats to canned tofu and fried gluten. The canned foods can be enjoyed immediately after opening or as an ingredient in cooking. Whichever way people choose to enjoy Chen Shin products highlights the convenience of having canned products stocked in the pantry.
Always looking for inspiration and developing new products, Chen Shin’s newest offering is canned konjac with sesame oil, a popular low-carb and low-calorie vegan health food.
Some of the best-sellers include the mock meat products like the canned vegetarian chicken meat and canned vegetarian duck meat, both made from gluten. Pre-cooked for convenience, these meatless options can be eaten straight out of the can or substituted in any casserole, curry, and stir-fry dish.
Another popular item is the canned braised tofu. It can be used as an ingredient in stir-fries and other savory dishes. Chen Shin even offers a recipe for braised tofu with salad on the company website as a quick and easy meal.
“No Preservatives, No Artificial Flavors, No Additives”
For over five decades, Chen Shin has been upholding its guarantee that all of the canned goods have no preservatives, no artificial flavors, and no additives. This is the company’s promise to provide natural and healthy choices for those following a vegetarian diet. Furthermore, the food manufacturer has ISO22000 approval for food safety, is HALAL certified, and has been FDA approved for many years. Truly, Chen Shin’s quality can be counted on by its customers all around the globe.
The company mainly exports its products to the U.S., Canada, Singapore, and several European countries including the U.K, Germany, Belgium, and Spain. Chen Shin hopes to continue expanding its market and considers it a great honor to be able to share its healthy vegetarian food with the world.
In 2020, the canned foods manufacturer exceeded the number of sales from the previous year even with the impact from COVID-19. Chen Shin’s success through the challenges caused by the pandemic stems from its customer service and strong business relationships and connections. Moving forward this year, Chen Shin hopes to continue providing the high-quality vegetarian products it is known for.
