China Lily Soya Sauce
"I remember as a kid driving down Queen Street past this now closed Company. My mother remembers it in the 1940's. China Lily was the most popular Soy Sauce brand in Canada at one time. Apparently the original owner died a few years ago, the company went bankrupt and the only manufacturing plant that was bought up was the one that made Soya Sauce."
Available once again!

After 73 years of selling one of Canada's most famous soy sauce brands, Lee's Food Products Ltd. has moved out of its factory in Leslieville.

The mysterious producer of the China Lily soy sauce brand vacated its longtime address at 1233 Queen Street East in August.

According to the company, which was founded in 1947, Lee's Food Products has brought its soy sauce production to a facility in Scarborough.

The company has also taken its iconic Chily Lily sign with it, to the dismay of some locals in a Leslieville community group, who've been speculating on who the new tenants of the brick and red-doored building will be.

A representative from Lee's Food Products says the company has no idea what business will secede their soy sauce factory. An A&W? A Shoppers Drug Mart? Soy Sauce Lofts, maybe? Who knows.
