We have successfully established a firm relationship of trust with customers by providing safe and tasty products.We trust that is the key for our existence.
We are determined to continually cherish the strong relationship with customers well into the future, thereby passing down the greatness of Japanese cuisine to the people of coming generations. As a soy brewer and food processing specialist based in Hokkaido, we are pleased to offer palatable Hokkaido-made soybean products to customers’ table. Not only do we wish to improve people’s daily culinary experience, but also we do trust that it shall contribute to the development of the local economy.

Since the beans are only lightly boiled before they are strained, packed and steamed, they maintain high nutritional value compared with other boiled beans. You can savor the natural flavor and taste of the beans as well as their fluffy texture. Please enjoy them as such, and you can also use them in various ways, such as an ingredient of soups, salads, mixed rice, bread, confectionery and more.

Enjoy the rich taste, natural sweetness and flavor of rice malt of this drink. As it is a non-alcoholic drink, everybody, including little children, pregnant women and nursing women, can enjoy.
