We are committed to supplying clean-label food products that our ancestors have been enjoying for centuries before the additives came along. When it comes to additive, to comply with European regulations (EC) No 1333/2008 is compulsory but simply not enough. We go beyond legislative requirements. Many additives are legal but harmful to our health.


Plastic is heavily used in the food package. We all know the fact the human being is drowning in plastic pollution. Plastic is the main cause of pollution on our planet. We believe in reuse, repair, recycle. We are determined to use less plastic in our product design. Plastic is classified into 7 groups. Type 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 are not easy to recycle and should be avoided where possible.


Food safety should always be any food business operator’s priority. We are a small well-trained team with each member playing an important role to achieve this mission. Our strict supplier approval procedure allows manufactures which hold global food safety management System, with GFSI recognized accreditation such as BRC to become an approved supplier. Our team also audit manufacturers & farms on regular basis based on risk assessment.


 We strive to minimise the environmental and social impact of commercial aquaculture. All our shrimp products are sourced only from the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) certified suppliers. ASC is an international organisation that manages the world’s leading certification for responsible aquaculture.


Our policy is to be GMO free. We review each ingredient in our products very carefully to ensure complete GMO absence. For Ingredients that are identified as ‘at GMO risk’ raw material, we require Non-GMO identity Preservation scheme, inSYTE system registration or evidence of compliance from our suppliers.


We are a member of SEDEX association, strongly believe in equal human rights. Before conducting any business with new suppliers, we require membership with SEDEX or signed Ethical-trading declaration.

The Human being is drowning in plastic pollution. 

Birds and fishes are dying because of plastic.

As a buyer, I DO NOT like to see plastic.

Inspire me with your creative & sustainable packages.

Read the ingredients on the food label.

Don’t let the legal but harmful additives hurt you and your loved ones.

Cook fresh ingredients in your kitchen are, of course, the finest. 


Processed foods are not all evil.

Many responsible manufactures are sharing the same belief as we do, in pursuit of removing additives.

Remove additives, my quest, my purpose.
