BACKGROUND

Created by a Chef on a Mission

In 2017, Ming received the world-shaking news that his wife Polly had been diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer. While they explored medical treatment options at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Polly also made the life-changing decision to transition to a strict vegan diet with the hope of lowering inflammation by using food as medicine.

Using his chef background, Ming knew that he could create delicious vegan options for his wife. However, when he went to the grocery store in search of quick meal options or savory meal replacements, he was disappointed by the variety and quality of the options on the market.

It was in that moment he recognized a new mission. As he developed meal options to help his wife heal, he would also help people in search of a plant-based diet find alternatives that not only nurtured the body, but delighted the taste buds. His first product would be a delicious veggie patty that could be prepared quickly and eaten on the go with an ingredient list full of foods he recognized. And with that, MingsBings was born.

GIVING BACK

Beyond nutritional benefits, we contribute a share of our profits to two foundations close to Chef's heart: Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund and Family Reach, a charity focused on alleviating the financial strain of a cancer diagnosis for families.
We also recently ran "Bing Dong Dine", an initiative surprising deserving families throughout Massachusetts with a gourmet pop-up restaurant experience at home. Learn More.

THOUGHTFULLY PACKAGED

We've carefully selected packaging with minimal environmental impact. We use two different types of environmentally-friendly insulation to deliver your Bings: Green Cell Foam and TemperPack - Clima Cell.

PREPARED WITH PURPOSE

Compared to meat processing and production, our vegan patty processes demand less water, land, and production footprints. Plus, no furry friends were harmed in the making of our patties.
