Our Story 1

It all began with
an idea…

The best recipes are perfected over generations and that is the story here at Foo Du.


Born of love, tradition, and community, the Foo Du recipes began in a tiny local restaurant in the Shandong province of Northern China.


Created and handcrafted by Max’s grandfather, his dumplings were loved by his neighbours. And then their neighbours… and then suddenly his dumplings were attracting people from all around the province.

When Max discovered that the dumplings sold here in New Zealand were not the traditionally delicious morsels of his childhood.


So, he decided to fix all of that and bring his grandfather’s tasty recipes to our beautiful shores so that we too could enjoy the authentic flavours of China.
