It is 7am. While many of us are just beginning the day, this marks the final hour of Lim Kee Food Manufacturing’s daily pau (steamed buns) production. Founded in the 1980’s, Lim Kee’s committed production team works from 11pm till daybreak, making the freshest paus that are delivered to coffee shops and canteens across Singapore – just in time to greet the hungry breakfast crowd.

These paus offer quick and tasty breakfast treats for all walks of life. To keep things tasty, the folks at Lim Kee make everything from scratch using only the finest ingredients, such as premium sugar from Australia and meat specially selected and flown in from Europe and America. Now we know how the quality and consistency of the paus are kept.

Even though the production is JUST ENOUGH and JUST IN TIME for daily orders, Lim Kee can make more than 100,000 buns a day in its Woodlands factory to meet high season demands, with just 40 production staff – thanks to modern automated processes and techniques.

Even with so much experience and dedication to making quality paus, the business constantly innovates to keep up with modern tastes. In 2012, it collaborated with Singapore Polytechnic’s Food Innovation & Resource Centre , creating healthier choice wholemeal paus, made with whole grain dough, to reach out to health-conscious Singaporeans. Rich in antioxidants, these come in exclusive fillings like Yam, Pumpkin and Salted Tau Sar, which are delicious and not found in traditional white paus.

To make its paus more accessible while meeting the needs of busy Singaporeans, Lim Kee has also started selling retail packs of mini paus and assorted rice products in local supermarkets. So now, all of us can enjoy these simple treats in the comfort of our own homes, anytime of the day.
