the park foods story
David Park was born into the food business. From a very young age, he watched his family establish one of the cornerstone Asian food markets in the Chicagoland area and gained experience in every aspect of the business, from running the cash register to running the day to day operation of the entire business. After decades of experience, David found that an essential relationship in the business was between the supplier and front end retailer. He began having a vision for a business that offered efficient and high quality food sourcing while understanding the details and challenges faced retailers. A business that could be a true partner to people like his parents.
So, armed with that goal, David started Park Foods Trading (PFT) in 2014.
PFT sources, distributes and manufactures global food products for businesses across the US. Anchored by 35 years of multigenerational experience in the field, PFT’s goal is to be a partner to businesses that are seeking high quality food products and easy to manage processes at fair prices. PFT promises a high standard of innovation, safety compliance and integrity by leveraging its key and long standing relationships with factories, culinary entrepreneurs and R&D experts around the world.
