The Original Oyster Sauce

LKK blog header Feb 2022

THE ORIGINAL OYSTER SAUCE!
IT ALL STARTED OVER 130 YEARS AGO WHEN OUR FOUNDER MR. LEE KUM SHEUNG INVENTED OYSTER SAUCE! THAT’S RIGHT, THE FIRST DELICIOUS UMAMI-FILLED, RICH, THICK OYSTER SAUCE IN THE WHOLE WORLD WAS MADE RIGHT HERE AT LEE KUM KEE. AND TO THIS DAY IT’S STILL MADE WITH REAL OYSTER EXTRACT WITH NO ADDED ARTIFICIAL OYSTER FLAVOURS.

Now Mr. Lee Kum Sheung’s Oyster Sauce, along with over 200 other sauces, are enjoyed across 100 countries and regions worldwide! And now YOU get to eat it, in a variety of ways. Here’s our top 5!
