Harlan Foods April Professional Spotlight | 
Thawng Cung

This month we focus our professional spotlight on a team member who has risen through the ranks from a refugee from Myanmar who spoke no English and knew no one in a foreign city.

Within a few years, he had mastered English and was quickly rising up as a Harlan Certified Food Professional. 

Today, he is a well respected Team Lead who helps Harlan deliver on its promise to feed 2 in 10 Americans with safe, nutritious and delicious food every week.

Each month Harlan Foods spotlights one of our many Food Manufacturing Professionals.  Our team members are very very proud of the work they do and often have a very interesting or inspiring story to tell.  

Many of them have been very successful in building a career and a life they are proud of.  Each of the employees we include in this video series have a desire to share what they have learned with others.  They hope that this will help new employees learn, grow and advance faster.

Harlan Foods is a family run company.  Many of our employees have been with us for over a decade and some for over 30 years, since our very beginning.  Our goal is to build successful and happy,  lifetime employees by offering performance based pay and a wide range of growth opportunities.

Our Signature Promise

Delicious. Delivered.

Fresh, quality ingredients are important to delivering a product with high nutritional value. However, for Harlan,
that is only the start. Delivering a desirable and delicious product also takes creativity, attention to detail and a mastery of the baking process. Paying attention to every detail ensures that every bite is right in the products
we make and deliver.
