Our Mission

The demand and popularity of Asian, Oriental, Caribbean and African food products have increased tremendously in the last decade. Asian, Caribbean and African ingredients have become staples in many American kitchens. Golden Country Oriental Food L.L.C. is committed to supplying and distributing to Asian, Caribbean and African international grocery stores, food service providers and wholesalers high quality authentic products regularly used in kitchens for preparing Oriental, Asian, Caribbean and African style meals. Our friendly staff at Golden Country is committed to offering our customers quality food products at reasonable prices. We look forward to working with you.


We are one of the largest Asian, African, Caribbean and Oriental wholesale food importers and distributors in the United States. We are located in Chicago, Illinois. Our 215,000 square feet distribution center is located at 2355 S. Blue Island Avenue in the heart of the wholesale food district. Our distribution center handles both walk-in customers as well as the shipping of truckloads and container loads to points throughout the Midwest and North America.

We carry over 3,500 dry and frozen products from Asia, Africa and the Caribbean, most of which we import directly from manufacturers. We import directly from China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Korea, Vietnam, Jamaica and the Philippines. Most of the products we carry are well known in the countries they were manufactured and are sought after regularly by Asians, Africans and Caribbeanites who live in the United States. Since we import products directly from the manufacturers, we are able to negotiate the most competitive prices. Additionally, we sell many food service, restaurant and institutional food items. Our customers are located throughout the Chicagoland area, the Midwestern portion of the United States and throughout North America. Customers can either drive their trucks to our distribution center to order and pick-up their merchandise, or they can request us to ship the products directly to them by independent truckers or by our own trucks. We also frequently engage independent truckers to deliver by the truckload or container load.
