About Us

Our Story

It all began in 1996 when Tai Pei frozen Asian-style entrées were first introduced featuring Sweet & Sour Chicken as our first single-serve entrée. It came packaged in a memorable takeout-style box to bring all the fun of Chinese takeout to your freezer.

Today, we've grown from one single-serve entrée to ten delicious recipes from Asia. Each variety is designed to deliver a restaurant-inspired experience from your own kitchen in just minutes.

But we didn't stop with single-serve entrées. In fact, our lineup of appetizers and snacks lets you serve up a variety of Asian-style meals with friends and family – all without the hassle of leaving home.

In 2014, we joined the Ajinomoto family of frozen food products. And in 2017, we made each of our single-serve entrées even better with all new recipes including clean ingredients, new savory sauces and flavor-infused rice; all free from preservatives, artificial flavors and colors.

 
 

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Are any of the Tai Pei products Vegan?
A: At the present time we do not have any Vegan items available.

Q: Are the frozen vegetables in your products as healthy as fresh?
A: Our frozen vegetables maintain their nutritional content because they are flash-frozen immediately after harvest, so you can enjoy the most nutritious and delicious vegetables whenever you like.

Q: What is a serving size? 
A: The serving size, or portion, of a food product or meal is regulated by the FDA and the USDA to ensure that nutritional labels are consistent and easy to read from product to product. A serving size is defined as the amount of food product or meal that has been deemed as usual or recommended for an average adult, unless indicated on the packaging. 

 

Q: Should I remove the tamper evident band before cooking?
A. Yes, remove the tamper evident band from the package before cooking in the microwave. Please refer to the instructions on each package for the most up-to-date instructions.

Q: Should I remove the lid before cooking?
A. No, keep the lid on when cooking Tai Pei entrées. The lid provides a seal to help the products cook faster and thoroughly. Be sure to remove the tamper band. Please refer to the instructions on each package for the most up-to-date instructions.

Q: If I don’t have a microwave, can I prepare your products on the stove or in the oven?
A: Tai Pei single serve entrées (9 to 14.2 oz.) were designed to be prepared in the microwave and should be cooked according to the package directions. However, our appetizers, such as Egg Rolls, Spring Rolls and Potstickers, can be prepared in the microwave, on the stove or in the oven. Please refer to the package directions for specific preparation information for each product. 

Q: Do you have any tips for heating your products in the microwave?
A: Read the directions on the package before beginning. Remember that microwave ovens vary in their rate of cooking. Compact ovens may heat more slowly than full-size ovens. Use the cooking/heating time given on the food package as a guide.

Q: Do I have to defrost your products before cooking?
A: No, for the best experience, do not thaw or defrost Tai Pei products prior to cooking/heating. Our meals and appetizers were created with the ease and convenience of our consumers in mind. Therefore, they can go directly from the freezer to the microwave, stove top or oven. Refer to the cooking/heating instructions provided on the package

 

Q: Do your products contain allergens?
A: Our products may contain allergens. However, if a common allergen is an ingredient in our food, it will be listed on the ingredient statement even if it appears in small quantities. We are also available to answer any questions that will help consumers decide which products are best for them.

Q: Can I purchase products directly from your company?
A: Unfortunately, due to the expense of shipping frozen products, we are unable to ship directly to the consumer. 

Q: I love the sauces that come with your products, are they sold separately?
A: At this time, our sauces are not available for purchase.

Q: Is your company working on any new products?
A: Yes! We’re always working to bring delicious new items to you and your family. We love hearing from our loyal consumers, so please let us know if there’s something new you’d like to see in your local supermarket.
