Of course there is, it's a perfectly standard shop like Asdas or Greggsies.

Can the ingredients be trusted? Non-GM?
Is it manufactured in the UK/EU or China?

It's made in Hong Kong. I'd give it a miss if you're expecting top quality ingredients, Chinese oyster sauce is a gloopy sauce with a very tiny amount of oyster and a whole lot of salt, sugar and MSG.

That's sort of the point though, it's the tasty unhealthy part that you add to an otherwise healthy dish for flavour.

Thanks. For me its mostly about taste but I still like to know some info about the ingredients/sourcing of my foods.
I was just wondering apart from regional authenticity, what made this special over oyster sauce made more locally?

A lot of these "recipes" for far eastern sauces goes back a long way, before all the concerns about drinking too much, smoking or eating food that might cause health problems. I have found that locally sourced stuff may be more compliant but in doing so, looses a lot of the "quality". I suppose it's like foreign beers that are bottled locally. Amongst the Chinese community lee Kum kee premium (not their panda brand) is the best in taste and texture but as richwest said, don't expect too much in their ingredients

Thanks, I have noticed this brand in Morrisons as well as Tesco so will probably give it a try.
Also the imported versions appear to be made from non-GM ingredients and meet EU limits for the carcinogen 3-MCPD.
