MISSION STATEMENT

“Nutrition, Taste and Value,” these simple but powerful words capture the essence of our mission - “To provide nutritious, delicious, value-oriented Asian meals and meal solutions to all we serve.”

COMPANY HISTORY

The founding members, Allan Lam, Lincoln Yee and Debra Huffman, have family roots that stretch as far back to the 1800’s as early Chinese immigrants working on the railroads as laborers and cooks. Their forefathers instilled a passion for creating great food and a commitment to excellence in producing quality meals - FOOD is deeply woven into the fabric of their culture and family settings. The diversity of professional backgrounds of all three members is profound and each member was uniquely inspired by the efforts of the National School Lunch program. What started out as a novel idea to provide Asian inspired lunches to local schools, has culminated into an innovative enterprise dedicated to preserving and sharing their family values through the production and sales of delicious high quality Asian cuisine. Asian Food Solutions entered the marketplace in June 2008 exhibiting at its first food show in Greensboro, NC with only three products: Tangerine (Orange) Chicken, New Orleans (Bourbon) Chicken and Spicy (Kung Pao) Chicken. The appeal and acceptance of all three products spurred a flurry of inquiries for product information and samples. By fall of 2008, the first orders were being delivered. Since then, the company has grown to serve customers in multiple segments across the country. Green Dragon products are made in the most advanced facilities with strategic partnerships for supply, manufacturing and distribution.
