◆ MISO IN ORVERSEAS MARKETS
The export volume of miso has been increasing year after year with the boom in Japanese food and fermented food overseas. 2021 saw a 123% increase over the previous year, with the export volume reaching 19,654 tons, setting a new record. Our export amount has been also growing by more than 115% per year in recent years. In particular, demand for safe, reliable, and high-quality organic miso is growing remarkably, driving exports of miso󠄀. We have expanded sales by developing products specifically for overseas markets that meet local tastes and preferences.
◆ OUR COMMITMENT TO ORGANIC MISO
We have been working on organic miso for more than 30 years, even before the organic certification system was established in Japan. To meet the demand for organic miso overseas, in 2001 we obtained certification under the National Organic Program (NOP), an organic program established by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and in 2008 we obtained certification under the European organic standards established by the EU Commission. As a leading manufacturer of organic miso, we are committed not only to pursuing great taste, but also to developing sustainable products.
