Those were

the days...

It was 1940, George Ahwee and his friend Rudy Choy decided to partner and go into the dairy business…


In our earliest entrepreneurial days, with a handful of employees and limited capital, we served a pretty small area in north Kowloon. It was not long before, Mr. Li Lan Sang, a friend of George and Rudy’s, invested in the business and so a company was formed and “Limited” was added to our name.

Over the ensuing decades, the company steadily expanded, with hundreds of our milk cows grazing on Kowloon acres long, now developed for housing Kowloon’s growing population.


In 1972, we moved our farming operations to Yuen Long and our milk production plant to a purpose-built state-of-the-industry facility in Tuen Mun where, using the latest in food technology, we continue to produce our famously rich and nutritious milks, and ice creams, to this day. As for our dairy farming operations, with Kowloon rapidly urbanizing, in 1984 we moved these up to Guangzhou, where quality control is stringent and absolute.
