Founder & Chairman of the Board
A Fusion of Tradition, Innovation & Family
The Sunrider story is really our family’s story. It encompasses generations, ancient Eastern traditions, and modern Western technology. While our founders, Drs. Tei-Fu and Oi-Lin Chen, started the company in Utah in 1982, their journey begins decades earlier in Tei-Fu’s homeland, Taiwan. Growing up, Tei-Fu was an unhealthy child. His grandfather cared for him with timeless Chinese herbal remedies. The medicinal properties of these plants were so powerful that they ignited in Tei-Fu a lifelong passion for Chinese herbal philosophy. While studying herbal medicine and pharmacology in college, he met and married Oi-Lin, a gifted medical student from Hong Kong. The couple paired their natural curiosity, scientific expertise, and shared entrepreneurial spirit to start a business that would change lives through natural products like those that changed Tei-Fu’s life all those years ago.
This founding philosophy fuels the Sunrider family business today. Dr. Tei-Fu Chen is a world- renowned herbalist with a degree in pharmacy and his wife, Dr. Oi-Lin Chen, is a licensed medical doctor. Their five children help guide our global enterprise across nearly 50 countries and territories, in partnership with thousands of inspiring Independent Business Owners and franchise store owners. We’re a family and we welcome you to join us.
