What is the origin of the Saigon Gourmet brand name?
Saigon Gourmet product range was born out of a desire to introduce authentic Vietnamese flavors to young families here. The family successors believe that the best way to share a culture is to discover and savor its culinary riches in the simplest way possible. Saigon Gourmet is the brand name chosen for our products, which are the perfect blend of premium ingredients with authentic Vietnamese cuisine flavors. Saigon is the former name given to the city of Ho Chi Minh, which is home to the famous “Chợ Lớn” district, which means Grand Market. It is the birthplace of Vietnamese cuisine, due to its strong concentration of styles and inspirations, and reflects the heart of gastronomic traditions from all over Asia. The word Gourmet reminds us of the excellence and freshness of this range of products that are easy to use daily. The Saigon Gourmet team, under the direction of the second family generation, wants to make Vietnamese traditions and flavors accessible to everyone with easy-to-use, tasty, and healthy products.
