Our HistoryFounded in 1954 by Mr. Chow Fook Bun and two of his business partners, Nansen Trading has been an agent and distributor specializing in importing, exporting and wholesaling Japanese food products in Hong Kong. In the 1970s, Nansen Trading was passed on to Mr. Chow Sing Lam, son of Mr. Chow Fook Bun, and he has been the Chairman of the company since then.
Besides selling prominent Japanese food products, such as Kikkoman soy sauce and Hakutsuru Sake, to name a few, Nansen Trading has been the agent for Miwon, one of the biggest Monosodium Glutatmate makers in Korea, and distributor of Lee Kum Kee products in Hong Kong. We have supplied these diverse food products to customers ranging from F&B catering groups, supermarkets, fast food chains and wholesalers all over the world including China, Australia, Central America, South Africa and Vietnam. One of Nansen Trading's milestones is the introduction of Miyakoichi Nama Udon to Hong Kong back in the early 1980s, and it has been one of the best selling udon brands in HK since then.
