From Factory to Fantasy

Redtory is built upon the original Yingjinqian Canned Food Factory (Guangdong Canned Food Factory). As early as 1893, modern food canning technology was introduced to South Guangdong, and the first can of fried dace with black beans in the world was produced in the first canned food factory in China – Guangzhou Guangmaoxiang Canned Food Factory. The much told tale of “A-hundred-year old Yingjinqian finally gave birth to the fried dace with black beans”. Guangdong Canned Food Factory was one of the 165 key cooperation projects between the Soviet Union and China. Prepared by the Light Industry Department in 1956, the large-scale canned food factory was put into production in 1958, which used to be the largest canned food factory in Asia of the time.




After half a century, the original Soviet-style buildings in the factory can no longer satisfy the demand of large-scale modernized mechanical production. Also in response to the Government’s industrial structure reformation, the canned food factory determined to relocate. The old buildings in the factory survive, though, no longer as a canned food factory. In 2009, Redtory Art & Design Factory was born.

Since the beginning, Redtory has been seeking for a way to realize the transformation of Guangzhou city from traditional industry to creative industry. Out of the thirsty for art creation as well as the cherishment of history, a group of creative people with social responsibilities carried out the restoration based on the original style, color and structure of the architectural complex. Fresh vitality of creation comes into bud, and the canned food is turned into an internationalized base for creative industries.
