SeeWoo - About us - History

History

When brothers Issy, Stanley and Tony opened their first Oriental food shop in London’s Soho in 1975, they had no idea that they would be pioneering the Oriental food trend in the UK for the next 30 years.

SeeWoo is a proper rags to riches story. The brothers came to the UK from Hong Kong in the 1960’s and started their careers working in restaurants. Today the SeeWoo Group is one of the largest suppliers of Oriental foods in the UK with its 3 retail stores, wholesale sales operation, restaurants and factory.
