Our History

Founded by the Pau family in 1981, Asia Market grew from the need to source authentic Asian ingredients to supply a select number of Asian Restaurants and takeaways who stuggled to source authentic ingredients locally, often having to import ingredients from the UK.

The timing was perfect with the growing Asian community and Irelands love affair with  Asian cuisine, the business grew steadily to become the #1 supplier of authentic Asian ingredients in Ireland. Still a family run business it is continuing with the second generation of the Pau Family.
