ABOUT US

Poon Haemapun

CEO and Founder - Culex Food Production

From my experience as a restaurant chain operator, I’ve realized that getting the quality and variety of Dim Sums and other Asian starters served on tables is a big task. Kitchen setup, hiring skilled personnel, consistency of products across branches, controlling wastage and municipality inspections are challenges we all have to face. We all seem to have only two choices; invest in the kitchen and personnel, or buy imported products. Both options are either expensive or are limited in choice.

At the start of my journey, I sought a supplier who specialized in Dim Sums and was capable of producing what we wanted, meeting our quality standards, while providing reasonable prices and variety.

Necessity is the mother of invention and thus, we have plugged that need with a ready solution for all Asian restaurant operators. Today, we are the leading producers of Dim Sums and other Asian starters in Dubai. Fitted with high-tech equipment, and an ensembele of award-winning chefs in our kitchen, our HACCP certified facility can cater to all of your requirements.
