  • Oyster sauce was invented by accident. Lee Kum Kee’s founder forgot to put out the fire while cooking oysters and a thick layer of brown paste with a fabulous taste was formed on the wok. This was the birth of oyster sauce.
  • The symbolism of the Lee Kum Kee logo represents a “cultural bridge” between East and West, a connection for all those who share a passion for Chinese and Asian food, while the unique purple text represents Lee Kum Kee’s “constant entrepreneurship”.
  • Lee Kum Kee is adamant about the quality management philosophy of “100-1=0”. This means they tolerate zero error throughout the whole manufacturing process “from farm to fork”, conveying the message of “quality never compromised”.
  • Lee Kum Kee sauces were selected for use on the spacecraft Shenzhou 9, 10 and 11 for their stringent quality standards. In 2015, astronauts brought along Lee Kum Kee Sriracha Mayo to NASA’s International Space Station.
