IN THE BEGINNING
Our story began in 1981 when Mr Lien Van Chieu came to Scandinavia. Shortly after his arrival he quickly understood the lack and scarcity of Asian food products. Looking to solve a common problem amongst family and friends, Mr Lien Van Chieu quickly took matters into his own hands. Fully determined to fill this void, he bought a Honda van without hesitation. He made several tours to Paris, France and had it filled up with all kinds of Asian delicacies and provided this to close friends and family.
MR LIEN VAN CHIEU SOUGHT TO SOLVE A COMMON PROBLEM AMONG FELLOW COUNTRYMEN
In 1982 the very first container from Asia arrives, the beginning of a big change to come. Word of Mr Lien Van Chieu's business travelled fast and the growing repuatation called for a higher demand of Asian food products.

By 1990 A Chau Lien aquired it's first warehouse in a remote place called Kattarp. This was the stepping stone that would later enable growth from local to a national level.
In 2004, operations was relocated to a new more favorable and strategical site at the business hub of Helsingborg. From here, A Chau Lien began to implement inventory management systems to ensure additional development. This year also saw the official birth of our private label Twin Dragon®.
