Kevin Ho, owner of Hòa Hưng Tofu had no ordinary childhood and his journey tells of his fighting spirit, endless passion and dedication to everything he does. As a result of the Vietnam War, Kevin spent the majority of his childhood in a Hong Kong immigration camp. At the age of 15 he arrived in Australia with no language skills and had to quickly adapt to his new world.
Demonstrating a fierce spirit, Kevin went on to obtain his Bachelor Degree, majoring in Finance from UNSW. Even while working in the corporate industry, Kevin had always dreamt about starting his own business.
In his late twenties, Kevin took over Hòa Hưng Tofu, which at the time, was supplying tofu to a few small restaurants and local Asian grocery stores. It was a perfect pairing as he has been a dedicated vegetarian for many years. Kevin devoted 7 years to continuously refining the shop’s tofu making techniques, with a mission to transform traditional tofu into an enjoyable and delicious produce for his two young vegetarian daughters. They are his biggest fans and love to regularly sample his new products.
After creating the winning formula, there was an increasing demand for his unique and fresh tofu. Hòa Hưng Tofu’s exceptional taste and quality soon generated rapid word-of-mouth among tofu lovers. As time passed, Hòa Hưng Tofu became the go-to tofu destination for highly-regarded restaurants and grocers.
Today, customers form long queues outside of Kevin’s retail-front to experience the famous taste. Day in day out, Hòa Hưng Tofu’s team of highly skilled tofu artisans use the same delicate handmade processes to produce and deliver fresh tofu.
