RT Foods, Inc. was founded in 1993 with the idea to produce, import and distribute authentic handmade Japanese tempura and other Asian delicacies for the foodservice channel.

In 1997 the TigerThai® brand was introduced for the retail/club channel and is the best selling brand in the tempura category.

We have always tried to do what consumers have expected of a food company. Deliver quality, value and convenience in every bite of our culinary treats.

  • We were the first, and still the only company to package sauce with every applicable TigerThai┬« product.
  • We were also the first to pack our premium shrimp products protective trays, vacuum bags or re-sealable bags.
  • We were the first to create a full line of quality frozen Asian delicacies.

As we develop new items we involve our friends and family as testers so that we can get honest, unbiased feedback. We take that feedback and use it to fine-tune the final product.

Every item is made by hand in our modern certified production facility, which operates like a large kitchen, rather than a factory.

All of our raw materials and ingredients are carefully selected and lower grade raw materials are rejected. This process requires skilled workers and a dedication to making the best food in our category.

All of our products are made by hand and are consistent from package to package. That's why we make the claim that our products are "True Restaurant Quality".
