Following the Equalists' attack on the Pro-bending Arena, the Metalbending Police Force was informed that Cabbage Corp was manufacturing Equalist weaponry. Soon after receiving the information, the police force searched one of Cabbage Corp's warehouses and discovered crates filled with Equalist propaganda and electrified gloves. Lin Beifong then arrested Lau Gan-Lan outside the company's headquarters and ordered the shutdown of Cabbage Corp in front of a crowd of reporters and journalists. However, it was later discovered that Hiroshi Sato framed the company in an attempt to conceal from the authorities the fact that he had been the one manufacturing the Equalists' weaponry.
Cabbage Corp is a reference to the cabbage merchant from Avatar: The Last Airbender. The series creators alluded to this reference during the 2010 Comic-Con by saying, "[The cabbage merchant's] legacy will be present in some form."
Cabbage Corp is owned by Lau Gan-Lan. His name is a pun on the Chinese words 老, meaning "old man" or "Mr." and 甘藍, meaning "wild cabbage". His name could therefore be translated as "Old Man Cabbage" or "Mr. Cabbage".
Since Cabbage Corp was founded sometime before 120 ASC, it is the oldest known private company in the Avatar World.
Cabbage Corp provided sponsorship for a music program on the radio.
The competition between Cabbage Corp and Future Industries is similar to the rivalry between Ford Motor Company and Oldsmobile.
The Cabbage Corp headquarters bares similarities to Boji Tower, a skyscraper in Lansing, Michigan that was built in part by Oldsmobile founder, Ransom E. Olds.
Some railroads remove the engines from obsolete locomotives and use their control cabs to remotely control another locomotive on the far end of the train. The empty engine space is used for luggage storage, hence, "cab-baggage cars" or "cabbage cars."
It is has been said that Cabbage Corp manufactures other "technologies", but no indication of what those might be has been given.
