SAN JOSE, Calif. Â Little Red Dot Kitchen has acquired a larger headquarters and production facility in the San Francisco Bay area to accommodate rising demand for its Bak Kwa meat snacks and to position the company for future growth.
Little Red Dot Kitchen plans to complete the transition from San Jose, Calif., into the new facility at 2365 Tripaldi Way in Hayward, Calif., in February, according to Little Red Dot Kitchen CEO Ching Lee. The Tripaldi Way facility includes increased office and production space and a commercial kitchen, Lee said. The company produces a line of five Bak Kwa meat snacks, which are like a sweet and savory jerky infused with Asian spices and inspired by a traditional grilled Singapore and Malaysian street food.
â€śWe are finding that our Bak Kwa satisfies the growing number of consumers who love to snack, but want snacks they can feel good about eating,â€ť Lee said. â€śThese shoppers are actively seeking high-protein foods with clean ingredients, like our Bak Kwa, that also have global influences and provide a sense of culinary adventure.â€ť
The Bak Kwa meat snacks come from U.S. family farms dedicated to raising animals humanely and without antibiotics or hormones. They are minimally processed with most ingredients having Non-GMO verification and also are free from artificial ingredients, wheat, dairy and eggs. The meat snacks are available in resealable 1- to 3-ounce packages with a suggested retail price of $6.99 to $7.99. Cases include 12 of the 2.5- to 3-ounce bags and 18 of the 1-ounce bags. The Bak Kwa is available in five flavors, including the 2016 sofiÂ® Award winning Hickory Smoked Spicy Candied Bacon, which has no nitrates or nitrites, Spicy Chipotle Beef Bak Kwa, Pork Bak Kwa, free-range Turkey Bak Kwa, and Lemongrass Beef Bak Kwa.
