About Us ~Bringing Health to Your Table~

Our history begins in 1910, when the Sakurai family purchased a machine to process noodles in Gifu Prefecture, Japan. Maintaining operation through World War II and onward, in 1968, the Sakurai family business started to produce and sell additive-free and natural products without artificial coloring. At that time, the commercial industry was moving heavily into mass production and mass consumption, creating an era where efficiency in production was top priority. It was during this era that Sakurai Foods defined their mission to commit to quality rather than to efficiency.

To guarantee the safety of our goods, we are committed to manufacturing and selling a variety of food products with ingredients from domestically contracted farmers who use organic or ecologically friendly methods to produce their agricultural products.

Our imported food items have cleared both national JAS-certified organic standards and organic standards abroad.

Our Commitment to Quality

1. Use of Domestically Grown Produce
In our wheat and blended flour and ramen noodles, we principally use domestically grown wheat, rice, and produce. We have formed strong partnerships with agricultural producers who are committed to upholding the standards of Sakurai Foods, Co., Ltd. Through inspection of the entire manufacturing process from farm to factory, we meticulously maintain the quality of every ingredient.

2. Use of Organic Produce
We carefully select only the finest organic products from both domestic and international manufacturers. For our overseas items, we visit the agricultural fields and production plants to hand pick superior quality goods. We also guarantee the best quality of our imported organic ingredients through close supervision of the entire process from production maintenance and processing to shipping.

3. Additive-Free Production
We strictly exclude the use of any synthetic preservatives or additives in our products. Also, our products do not contain any chemical preservatives or unnatural food coloring.

4. Allergy-Friendly Production
In addition to listing the allergens in our products based on information provided by our suppliers, we carefully survey the production conditions of each manufacturer for any potential cross contamination with allergens and we develop measures to eliminate that risk.
