[FREMONT, CA] - 11/03/2020 - ANGKOR CAMBODIAN FOOD, a business specializing in quality Cambodian ingredients and culinary services, is proud to announce national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the WBEC Pacific, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).

“Ten years ago, I started the first Cambodian food manufacturing company in the USA,” said Channy Chhi Laux, CEO, Angkor Cambodian Food. “Looking back, I had to overcome many ultimatums alone, and many times I second guessed myself.  With WBENC I feel that I am amongst sisters that understand entrepreneurial challenges and we can celebrate our successes together.”

WBENC’s national standard of certification implemented by the WBEC Pacific is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women. 

By including women-owned businesses among their suppliers, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier diversity programs.

Our chef and founder Channy Laux was born in Cambodia and came to the USA as a teenage refugee in 1979. Not knowing a word of English, she worked tirelessly to achieve her American dream.

After earning MS and BS degrees in mathematics and computer science, Channy spent 30 years working as an engineer in the aerospace and biotech industries. Longing to carry forward her mother’s legacy, Channy walked away from the security of the corporate world and dedicated herself to following her mother's footsteps of spreading love and sharing Cambodian food that brings joy to everyone involved.  With this commitment, Channy published her award-winning memoir Short Hair Detention, and started Angkor Cambodian Food with the goal of providing quality Cambodian ingredients and culinary services in America. 

All of our sauces and pastes are made in the USA using all natural ingredients, no artificial color and no artificial preservatives. On the ten-year anniversary of our company we launched Angkor Chef to provide access to many recipes that Channy cooked with her mother, as well as some new and fun fusion dishes. Angkor Chef also provides a takeout menu, allowing our guests to sample the dishes prior to cooking them.
