Our Origin Story

In the 1980’s, Peter and Lois Chan could see the potential growth of the Asian Auckland Community, from there Tai Ping Trading Co. Ltd was formed to service the community with Asian groceries.

With the deregulation of importation licenses and a new wave of immigration, in 1989 renewed opportunity appeared.

When the business grew, the shop and company office was relocated to 117 Beach Road, subsequently to 105 Beach Road.

This was Tai Ping’s first fully fledged Asian supermarket and remains there til this day.

In the 1990’s Peter Chan was join by his two sons, Wayne and Michael. Together they grew Tai Ping Trading to include successful wholesale and importation company of a diverse range of Asian food and grocery products along with the establishment of several more Tai Ping retail supermarkets.

Today, with the same family ethics and further including the next generation of the Chan clan the Tai Ping business continues to grow with its strong import network and chain of retail supermarkets located throughout Auckland.
