Other Career Opportunities at Sunrise Market (Vancouver)

Sunrise Market is a family-owned and operated grocery store in Vancouver, centrally located near the Chinatown, Railtown and Strathcona neighbourhoods.  The market offers a wide range of produce, meat, dairy, packaged goods and seasonal items including the full selection of Sunrise Soya Foods products. 

The founders, Leslie and Susan Joe immigrated to Canada in 1956, where they recognized a demand for tofu in Vancouver’s Chinese community. Leslie and Susan began making small batches of fresh tofu in the back of Sunrise Market. It did not take long for them to develop loyal customers in the community. As the demand for tofu grew throughout the 60’s and 70’s, so did the business. In 1983, factory space was purchased nearby to transition the small operation into a large scale manufacturing plant.  Over 50 years later, Sunrise Market still operates and Sunrise Soya Foods is Canada's largest manufacturer of tofu.
