From humble beginnings in 1958, Việt Ấn spice powder foundry was established by its two founders, Mr. Châu Tư and Mr Hari. The founders took advantage of Vietnam’s abundant natural spices, utilising Indian, Chinese and Vietnamese knowledge and traditions as a basis, to create an unique local curry powder, five spice powder and beef stew powder. Their research in the following years added new products such as Vietnamese ‘Phở’ Beef Noodle Soup Base, ‘Bún Bò’ of Huế Condiment, Curry Oil Paste, Spicy Satay Paste,… thereby growing the family-run business into a co-operative in 1985. From 1985, Vietnam’s economy opened and expanded, the co-op become a limited liability corporation, thus paving the way for Viet An Company to enter a joint venture with an Australian partner company in 1989, and VIANCO Joint Venture Enterprise came into existence. Today, VIANCO has an extensive multi-faceted supply chain and a multi-channel distribution network supplying consumers, food manufacturers and food service industry stakeholders including top 5 instant food brands in Vietnam, fast food chains, export companies and contract manufacturing OEM for overseas companies.
