It’s All About Food – Eugene Wang with Susan Carskadon and Michael Neeley – 05.31.16

Part I: Eugene Wang, Sophie’s Kitchen Vegan Seafood

Eugene Wang grew up immersed in the vegetarian food business. For 20 + years his family has led the way in quality manufacturing of vegetarian food and distributing it throughout Asia and in North America. He took all he learned and in 1996, began consulting and leading food companies in the vegan and vegetarian food categories. Since 2004, his vision for launching the first Vegan Seafood has manifested into a viable category innovation lauded by the press and social media thought leaders, as well as natural trade industry leaders. The Sophie’s Kitchen Vegan Seafood phenomena has brought him the accolade ‘Vegan Visionary’.

Eugene is an experienced entrepreneur and leader. His broad scope of professional experience makes him uniquely qualified to assist vegetarian/vegan companies to the next level of success. For example, as President of Super Elephant, Taiwan, in 2004-2010, he acquired national distribution for the top US natural distributor, UNFI, where he became highly skilled in all aspects of developing sales in the natural and specialty marketplace in Asia for leading US natural product companies. In 2001, he founded a software company in Silicon Valley that built web-based CRM software, and in 1999, he joined Sherpa Research Limited, Tokyo, to spearhead a leading Japanese company into the Chinese market by developing important alliances and creating proactive, strategic marketing plans.
