Positive growth for Wing Yip

mr-wing-yip2009 has been a year of positive growth for Wing Yip, with an increase in sales across the group and exceptional growth at the expanded Cricklewood store.

Wing Yip is widely recognised as the UK’s leading Chinese grocer, with four superstores in Birmingham, Manchester, Cricklewood (London) and Croydon (London) and further stores planned for Nottingham and Cardiff.

The superstore and warehouse at Cricklewood is housed in an impressive 64,000 sq ft Oriental style building, with a free underground car park. Cricklewood offers an extensive range of quality products, sourced from a wide range of Far Eastern suppliers and manufacturers.

The new Business Centre, located next to the Cricklewood superstore, provides a genuine “China Town” setting, with 12 business units serving the Oriental and local community. The wide range of specialist services in the centre includes: a Chinese restaurant; bakery; travel agent; printer; hairdresser; acupuncturist and other services.

The stand alone office building, China House, is currently being fitted out and will offer 20,000 sq ft of banking and office space, spread over four floors.

Wing Yip’s award winning cooking sauces are renowned by chefs and caterers throughout the UK for their authentic Oriental flavour and taste.

The range of own-brand Wing Yip sauces now include more than 20 varieties, with household favourites such as Black Bean, Spicy Sweet and Sour Szechuan, and Chinese Curry. The key to their success is the intense flavour, which marries the best spices and flavours from the Far East.

A favourite of the catering and restaurant industries since their launch in the mid ‘90s, the sauces are now recognised as a benchmark in authentic Oriental cuisine by food enthusiasts, as well as the nation’s most celebrated chefs.

Wing Yip also offers a food service range of larger sized sauces which promise to add exotic and authentic flavours to any menu.

Chairman Mr Wing Yip said: “We are constantly investing and developing our range of cooking sauces and products to ensure we continue to offer our customers and retailers the fullest and most varied range of Far Eastern cuisine available on the UK market.

“Our business continues to grow, with the completion of Cricklewood, plans in place for superstores in Nottingham and Cardiff and an extension in Birmingham.”
