The Hayashi family didn’t realize in 1936 what they had created. Their small family business would become Japan’s number one natural and organic miso, with loyalists around the world, from chefs to home cooks.
Our Family's Vision
The wisdom of our forefathers lives on in each of our products today, bridging the simpler diet of times past with the modern lifestyle for healthy living. As we reach more consumers around the world, we never forfeit our founders’ vision. We only build upon it to serve you the world’s most conscious and traditional miso, still led by the same Hayashi family. It is a vision we hope you can taste.
Environmental Stewardship Lives Here
“We feel good about our support of certified organic farmers of rice and soybeans for our products. We believe organic practices will regenerate the land, while avoiding toxic chemicals in our air and water. Good for the ecosystem. Good for us all.”
– Yoshihiro ‘Joshu’ Hayashi, fourth generation, CEO and Chairman leading the Hayashi family’s vision today.
Each day we embrace environmental practices to make a lighter impact on natural resources. To make one of the world’s most wholesome foods is not enough. We know we must be stewards of the environment. Since 1998 we’ve chosen to measure reductions in our impact and to continually improve.
