Our Story

It all started with a vision

When Qimei was started back in 1999, the idea behind it was simple: to provide others with food that we would want to feed our own family.

Two decades later, we supply our products to five continents. Yet our vision has never changed.

In the beginning, our idea was big, but our land was small: 130 acres of bare sandy land. At that time, we could only grow asparagus. Asparagus grows well in sand and it helped preserve our land from further degradation. Our asparagus was well-received in the local market...

 

Fast forward to today, Qimei has grown to a size we didn't even think was possible before:

2,700 Acres of Organic Farmland

1,400 Acres of Conventional Farmland

1,600 Farmers

200+ Products

20+ Countries of Customer Base

4 Distribution Centers

3 Countries of Customer Service Offices

 

We wouldn't have achieved this growth without our customers and their support. Their continuous trust in our company has justified the dedication we've put forth since 1999.

Growing production:
one facility at a time

Our popularity in the local markets allowed us to expand our growing area and sustainably produce more items. Then, we faced a new problem: It was increasingly difficult to get our fresh produce to more customers. We needed to preserve our products longer while maintaining the nutrients and flavor. Thus, the first facility was born...

In 2005, we built our first factory right next to our farmland. It was an IQF production facility. The first factory enabled us to reach a bigger market and a broader audience base.


Through interactions with customers, we learned more about the ever-changing demands and trends. As such, more factories were established to service the growing needs of the market. Today, we have five facilities in total, including:

 IQF Facility

Freeze Dry Facility

Air Dry Facility

Extraction and Cold Press Facility

Protein Facility

At Qimei, we never stop exploring new methods and developing new products. We love to hear from customers and help them create new and unique products for the growing market.

We don't just build quality,
we build trust

When it comes to selecting a long-term supplier, the most important factor is trust - especially in the organic products world. We understand that, and have never taken customers' trust for granted.

We are working hard to make every new business opportunity into a long-term partnership.

Canada Organic Certificate

China Organic Certificate

Japan Organic Certificate

On the production side, we were awarded major food safety management system certificates including:

We are fortunate that more and more customers are choosing to work with us. It motivates us to accomplish even more than what is necessary. We strive to live up to the customers' trust and expectations.
