Our Story


Golden Star understands what it means to feed a family, because we are a family.

Started in 1985, Golden Star is a family-owned, woman-owned, minority-owned business that is thriving because of families like yours. From ensuring our products are packed fresh at harvest season to using sustainable efforts in our fields and factories, we believe you deserve to eat the best foods made in the best way and save money doing so.


Golden Star’s highest goal is to provide value and quality to our customers.

At the end of the day, there is no value in what we do if the way we do it hurts others. Golden Star prioritizes fairness and equality to all employees, throughout Asia and in the U.S. Before sustainable practices were introduced in most companies, Golden Star initiated and invested in automated and upgraded machinery to make worker’s lives easier. Since then, Golden Star only works with factories audited and certified by leading quality control organizations and refuses to work in unsanitary or unsafe working environments. Factory workers are properly trained in all safety programs and given fair benefits and wages. Golden Star believes in order to provide top quality and value, the livelihood and sustainable working conditions of employees must always be respected and prioritized.

  • Golden Star has always stood on two basic principles: Feed other families what we would feed our own, and provide these families with the best quality and value possible.
  • Families and friends regularly come together around the table, creating memories and conversations around a meal. We exist to make those moments happen.
  • Social responsibility is more than a social movement. It is our standard to excellence for our employees and for you. Join us by purchasing food you believe in.
  • Rice is one of the greatest foods in the world. It is said that over 1/4 of the world's population depends on rice as a main food group. We are proud of where our rice comes from and proud of what it means for our customers. Thank you for supporting our farmers around the world. The simple purchase of rice supports the well-being of farmers around the world.
