Introducing the Founder

The founder of La Uchine International Mr Chung-I Hsu often uses these words "Professionalism, Speed, Value" when addressing his employees. These are also the words he used as a foundation for La Uchine International when it was first established, and they form the significant DNA of the company.


Mr Chung-I Hsu graduated from the National Taiwan Ocean University, School of Food Science and was the factory manager for Wei Chuan Taichung Branch and Wei-Cheng Food Industry. However, Mr Hsu decided to apply his professional knowledge to the food industry as a whole and address the many difficult technical issues encountered by manufacturers during production… to this end in 1974 he established the La Uchine Food Technology Co Ltd In Taichung. It was also the very first food additives company to be approved by the Department of Health in Taiwan.


Honored twice as a Distinguished Alumni

During the early days of the company Mr Chung-I Hsu was very busy. Most of the time he was either at a client's factory, or on the way between different client's factories and they were like home to him. It became very clear to him that without food additives the modern food industry could not exist.


Mr Chung-I Hsu has applied his extensive knowledge to the manufacturing processes of his clients, and has solved very many of the problems encountered in food manufacture. He has used his professional knowledge to speed up and improve the efficiency of processing and also to create value for his clients and for the La Uchine International Corporation.

However, he has also contributed to major University construction and has twice been honored as a distinguished member of the alumni.
