Only the Choicest Ingredients
Putting an abundant amount of vegetables, fruits and spices in our sauces creates a natural taste that translates to rich flavor and true deliciousness. We seek out the highest quality ingredients from around the globe.
Inspection of Production Sites
We visit fields and other growing locations around the world for our ingredients, taking the opportunity to talk directly with owners and producers. We carefully check the surrounding environment, production processes and sanitation conditions while also talking with owners and producers to create a relationship of trust and improve quality.
Dates: Blessed Fruit
Dates, one of the crucial ingredients of Okonomi Sauce, are a fruit with great vitality as they are cultivated in the deserts of the Near and Middle East. It is described in the Koran as a food given to us by God and is an essential food for Muslims when fasting during Ramadan. It has been loved as a nutritional food of the caravans that have roamed the desert since ancient times, and is known as the "Blessed Fruit" due to containing plentiful amounts not only of sugar but also various minerals such as iron and calcium, as well as dietary fiber and various vitamins.
Quality Control Management System
At our plants in Japan and abroad, we make sure our manufacturing processes are safe and reliable by acquiring various certifications.
Los Angeles Factory
SQF Certification (acquired in May 2018)
We have acquired the SQF (Safe Quality Food) Certification, an international standard certification based on HACCAP. By acquiring more advanced international standard certifications, we can provide more customers with safe and secure products.
Creation of a Safe and Secure System
Quality is confirmed by the Quality Assurance Division that performs periodic inspections of all group factories according to thorough strict standards. Business to business customers also provide strict inspections in order to maintain and improve our already high quality.
