|FEAST FOOD: Detail from a King Sue Christmas Print Ad, ca. 1961|
|KING SUE CHRISTMAS ADS, from 1961 and 1962.|
KING SUE was founded back in 1930 by Fookienese immigrant Cu Un Kay, who was tutored by a German national on the art of ham and meat processing. Thus was created the famous King Sue Hams. The bone-in Chinese ham with the familiar sailing ship brand logo, came wrapped in paper and secured with nets; they were to be King Sue’s flagship brand for years. Today, King Sue has other ham variants plus other deli products—from gourmet sausages, chorizo de bilbao, salami, pepperoni to Filipino favorites like sisig and tocino.
