Wing Yip’s stores produced meals for vulnerable people during lockdown, but had to temporarily reduce their opening hours due to a fall in demand. The firm sells oriental food, drinks and household goods to businesses and the public from four cash-and-carry stores in London, Birmingham and Manchester, as well as online, with sales of £119.1m last year. Managing director Brian Yip, 45, runs the company, founded in 1970 by his father, Woon Wing Yip, 82.
