For the past 30 years Tsang has promoted the products in the U.S. food industry, developing recipes using the sauces and appearing in television and radio programs to help familiarize an American market with traditional Chinese seasonings.

Both Asian and American chefs now make use the company’s products, which include oyster sauce, soy sauce and hoisin sauce, which are available at mainstream supermarkets and restaurants; and Tsang has consulted with food industry household names such as Applebee’s, BJ’s, California Pizza Kitchen, Panda Restaurants, TGIF, McDonald’s, Pillsbury, Nestle and Uncle Ben’s.
