Tingyi (Cayman Islands) Holding Corporation (simplified Chinese: 康师傅控股有限公司; traditional Chinese: 康師傅控股有限公司; pinyin: Kāng-shīfu Kònggǔ Yǒuxiàngōngsī; formerly (顶益(开曼岛)控股有限公司; 頂益(開曼島)控股有限公司; Dǐngyì(Kāimàn Dǎo) Kònggǔ Yǒuxiàngōngsī; SEHK322) is the largest instant noodle producer in China. It specialises in the production and distribution of instant noodles,[1] beverages, baked goods and soft drinks with its brand name, Master Kong (康師傅).[2][3] Its headquarters are in the Tianjin Economic-Technological Development Area in Binhai, Tianjin.[4]


The company was founded in Tianjin by the Wei brothers from Changhua County, Taiwan in 1991.[5] It was listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange in 1996.[6]

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

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.[8]

In June 2011, Master Kong[9] was found by market research firm TNS to be the second most valued brand in China.[10]

As of 2013, its main competitors are Want Want China and Uni-President.[1]

In 2014, Master Kong was facing the food safety problem in Taiwan.[11]

In 2015, Master Kong stopped distributing its instant noodles in Taiwan. The group’s board of directors has approved a plan to completely withdraw from the Taiwanese market.[12]
