Saigon Gourmet is a Quebec-based family-owned business whose essence is defined by its founders’ homeland, Vietnam. The name Saigon Gourmet represents the perfect blend of flavourful Vietnamese cuisine and its Asian influences.
Saigon is the former name of Ho Chi Minh City, home to the famous district of “Chợ Lớn,” which means “big market” in Vietnamese. It’s the cradle of Vietnamese cuisine, due to its heavy concentration of styles and inspirations, and is the hub of many culinary traditions from all over Asia. Gourmet evokes the high quality and freshness of this product range, which can easily be incorporated into your everyday cooking.
At Saigon Gourmet, we believe that the best way to discover and share a culture is to enjoy its culinary treasures in the simplest way possible. Saigon Gourmet makes the classic flavours of Vietnam more accessible and exciting for everyone with flavourful, healthy products that are easy to put together.

The family business was founded in 1988 and specialized in specialty Vietnamese cold cuts under the Long Phung brand. All products are prepared at the Saigon Gourmet processing plant in Sainte-Catherine, Quebec, and have “Aliments préparés au Québec” certification. To guarantee their quality, the products are processed using the FSEP approach adopted by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) to encourage and support the development, implementation and maintenance of HACCP quality control systems – and the plant is certified to this effect.
