About Thai United

Delivering authentic global flavors and quality products to your doorstep.

The Thai United Story:
From Local Roots to National Success

From a humble beginning in a 5,000-square-foot warehouse in Burnaby, BC, Thai United Food Trading Ltd., founded by John Keomany in 1994, has grown into a distribution powerhouse in Canada. John’s vision transformed Thai United from a local supplier of specialty products into a national distributor, partnering with household names like Indomie and Knorr and working with major outlets like Walmart and Costco.

Now operating from a 100,000-square-foot headquarters, our family-run business thrives on innovation, quality, and a commitment to excellence. With a reach of over 3,000 outlets, Thai United continues to expand, driven by a team dedicated to enhancing consumer lives and supporting clients with exceptional products and service.
