It is a wholly owned subsidiary of Ting Hsin International Group.[7][8]

In March 2011, Unilever was fined 2 million Yuan for the distribution of information about future price hikes and Tingyi was given a warning about publicly discussing their price increases.[9]

In June 2011, Master Kong[10] was found by market research firm TNS to be the second most valued brand in China (after Sony).[11]
