Its products are similar to its parent company's. Wei-Chuan USA's corporate logo includes five red balls which represent the five basic flavors.

The Wuhan Wei-Chuan division was founded August 1995 as a joint venture with Wuhan Weijing Factory targeting Hubei and Sichuan. Products include MSG, soy sauce, animal feed, and bouillon. Brands include Vecon, Wei-Chuan, and Great Bridge.
