Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I am delighted to be invited to introduce the Lee Kum Kee 125th Anniversary website, and to share with you our unforgettable memories of the past and our outlook into the future.

It’s not easy for any business concern to survive and remain strong for over a century. It is even more inconceivable for Lee Kum Kee, which began as a humble family operation, to grow into the renowned family enterprise that it is over a period of 125 years. We should value our past and can take pride in our remarkable achievements.

I deeply believe that one must remember where one’s success comes from, and fully recognize that it is only through the unflagging loyalty and support of our distributors, suppliers, customers and fellow colleagues that Lee Kum Kee is where we are today. On behalf of the Board of Directors, I thank you all for your staunch support and contribution.

In the celebration of Lee Kum Kee’s 125th Anniversary this year, we will organize a series of stakeholder-oriented activities to strengthen our bondage and express our appreciation to our business partners for their trust and affection over these years. By the same token, we would also like to express gratitude to the admirable determination and relentless efforts of fellow colleagues to achieve pragmatic growth as they embrace the spirit of constant entrepreneurship and customer-focussed approach in developing our business to scale new heights.

This website will detail all the celebration activities throughout the year, as organized by the 125th Anniversary Steering Committee under the leadership of Mr. Charlie Lee. I do hope you will actively support and participate in these events.

I look forward to working hand in hand with you all for the sustained prosperity of Lee Kum Kee in the years to come.

Lee Man Tat
Lee Kum Kee Group Chairman
