With Ming’s extensive culinary experience and success of his two restaurants Blue Ginger and Blue Dragon, he founded MingsBings. The idea for the brand developed after his wife Polly was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer in 2017. Chef Ming wanted to create delicious, healthy meal options while his wife was in treatment. Using easily recognizable ingredients and delicious superfoods, he curated snacks and meals that were convenient and healthy.

Using the inspiration of the meals he made for his wife, MingsBings was born. Inspired by the flavors of East-West cusine, MingsBings continues to provide great tasting meals that are great for your body. The successful brand continues to contribute to two organizations close to Ming’s heart: The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Family Reach.
