The Group is also a major operator in food processing business with 4 ISO-certified plants in Hong Kong and Mainland China.

The Group was incorporated in October 1968 and was listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange in July 1986, which was the first local catering group which went public. Over the past 50 years, the Group substantially established its position as the market leader in the fast food industry. Deep-rooted in Hong Kong, the Group put great emphasis on sustainable development, and has been selected as a constituent member of the Hang Seng Corporate Sustainability Benchmark Index since 2015.

Since establishment, the Group has been through transformations which continuously lead to multiple achievements in terms of turnover, staff employed and net asset value. We firmly believe that the Group will consistently grow in the future with the teamwork of 18,000 staff members.

Hong Kong’s market leader

Quick Service Restaurants
In Hong Kong, Café de Coral is the undisputed market leader in the fast-food sector. While we emphasise quality dishes at affordable prices, we are also pioneers in offering new choices to ensure optimum variety.

In addition to our flagship brand Café de Coral, we are actively developing other strategic brands such Super Super Congee & Noodles, to boost our long-term growth in Hong Kong’s competitive Chinese QSR area.

Casual Dining Restaurants
Café de Coral Group perceives the huge potential of the Casual Dining market in Hong Kong and hence, adopted the multi-brand strategy to fit the appetite of different customers. The Western-style restaurants – The Spaghetti House and Oliver’s Super Sandwiches have been admired by the public over the years. The Group’s home grown casual dining brands, Shanghai Lao Lao and Mixian Sense have built unique brand images in the market that foster steady growth. The Group also cooperated with overseas restaurant groups and introduced THE CUP and Don Don Tei, serving Korean and Japanese cuisines respectively. Other youthful brands including 360 series, ZAKKA and Little Onion also serve the mass public with a wide variety of cuisines.

Institutional Catering
In the early 1990s, we began making strides into the institutional catering business with the launch of Asia Pacific Catering. The brand has since developed into an undisputed leader in its market, serving many major clients across a wide spectrum of institutions such as major hospitals, universities and both private and public corporations.

In September 1999, we entered the student catering business with the introduction of Luncheon Star. It has subsequently grown to become one of Hong Kong’s largest school lunch providers. In providing children with healthier choices of school meals, Luncheon Star consistently emphasises food safety, sensible eating habits and sustainability. In doing so, its expert buying teams select quality ingredients purchased worldwide, its expert dieticians carefully devise delicious, nutritious menus and its advanced “cook-chill” technologies. The company is also the first school lunch provider in the Territory to adopt comprehensive environmental protection measures, such as leftover management and recycling.

Café de Coral Group leads as probably Hong Kong’s most stringent specialist caterer in terms of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and safety standards. To date, our operations have been simultaneously accredited with “HACCP”, “ISO 9001”, “ISO 14001” and the strictest “ISO 22000” food safety and monitoring system – another first in the Hong Kong school catering industry.

Central Food Processing
Having consistently recognised that a strong Central Food Processing Centre was crucial for our success as a catering group, we have been centrally processing food locally since the 1980s. With state-of-the-art technologies, the facility enables streamlined standardisation of food quality and ensures total control over an ever-increasing volume and range of products and ingredients.

Much of the food sold in our restaurants is portioned and processed at this facility. All the produce, ingredients and packaging materials undergo strict hygiene and safety checks on arrival, before processing and distribution to individual restaurants.

To facilitate business development, the new Food Processing Plant in Tai Po began operation in April 2013. The 140,000-square foot plant is equipped with advanced facilities which enhance the control of food quality and overall productivity.

Mainland China expansion

Quick Service Restaurants
After years of development, we are proud that the Café de Coral has achieved success in the Greater Bay Area. Leveraging our proven business platform and brand, we opened a large Central Food Processing Centre in Guangzhou in 2011. The facility boasts multi-purpose training facilities that are successfully equipping staff to make further advances in this competitive market.

Food Manufacturing and Distribution
Our 1997 acquisition of the Scanfoods was a strategic step to deliver on our promise of taking our activities in integrating food manufacturing and distribution in Greater China to the next level. One of Hong Kong’s leading processed meat suppliers, Scanfoods owns a 40,000-square foot production base in Dongguan. From here, it processes and distributes ham, sausages and bacon products to institutional customers all over Hong Kong and Mainland China.
