Cambodian Food In The News

It is exciting to see the words, “Cambodian Food” on a major news network like CNN, 30 Cambodian foods every visitor needs to try.  We are delighted to see that one-third of these dishes were made with lemongrass paste (Kroeung), which is one of our products that won the sofi™ award.  

Angkor Food is the first Cambodian food manufacturing company in the USA. Our goal is to bring the taste of Cambodia to American palates by providing quality ingredients, spices and easy to follow recipes for authentic and fusion Cambodian flavor. 

We have recently launched Angkor Chef where our founder and Chef, Channy Laux, shares her recipes. Channy also shares stories behind each dish, ranging from unique aspects of Cambodian food culture to her own recipe-influencing moments of childhood in Cambodia and immigration to the US.

We are proud to celebrate our ninth anniversary and grateful for every opportunity to serve the community we live in. Today, our products are used in foodservice applications and are available in specialty supermarkets as well as online at
