Daddy Trinh describes landing in Sydney Airport in 1981 as a re-birth since the Vietnam War. He discovered a new zest for life, and was loving every bit of Australia and Aussie culture! 

However, one thing was missing…he just could not satisfy his taste buds. So, he went back to Vietnam, searched far and wide across every single instant noodle factory, selected only the best, and came back to Australia to establish Vifon here. 


To this day, there remains a fierce following for Vifon products across Chinese and Vietnamese grocery stores.
