|"No! Not my Cabbage Corp!"|
|— Lau Gan-Lan upon hearing that his company will be closed.|
Lau Gan-Lan is the son of the cabbage merchant and current owner of Cabbage Corp, the rival company of Future Industries in Republic City. He was framed by Hiroshi Sato as the manufacturer of Equalist weaponry.
In 170 AG, the Metalbending Police Force was alerted of Lau Gan-Lan's alleged Equalist ties. After finding sufficient evidence, the police came to Cabbage Corp's headquarters and arrested him. Despite his assertions that the allegations were false, authorities proceeded with carrying away Lau Gan-Lan, causing him to begin crying upon hearing that his assets would be frozen and Cabbage Corp would be closed. It was later discovered that Hiroshi Sato had framed Lau Gan-Lan, who was subsequently released and continued running his company.

- Both characters were voiced by the same man, James Sie.
- Lau Gan-Lan is a pun on the Chinese words , which is a respectful title meaning "old man" or "Mr." and , meaning "wild cabbage": his name could therefore be translated as "Old Man Cabbage" or "Mr. Cabbage".
