Washoku

Japanese food culture walking with the fishery.
We have a traditional culture of Japanese food. It is called ”Washoku” in Japanese.
Washoku was registered as UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2013.
Basically, Washoku is soup, rice, one main dish, and two small side dishes.
Washoku is characterized by the use of various seasonal fresh foods, and is famous as very healthy food due to a low-calorie, nutritious and well-balanced diet.
Japan is surrounded by a rich ocean and is blessed with brackish water areas and tides with high productivity.
"Japan's land is long in the north and south, sometimes colored in the four seasons,
We have used a wide variety of marine products rooted in the community."
But eating lots of fish is not called "fish food culture".
Evaluation of catch skills and quality, utensils such as kitchen knife, diverse cuisine produced by various recipes, processing and storage technology .....
The accumulated knowledge and knowledge will continue to the next generation. That is "fish food culture".
From now on we aim for further development of Washoku, we will deliver the foundation of "fish food culture" we make new history to the world people through export of fishery products.
Falling in love with Squid.
Our production base has 2 factories near the Japan sea of Sakata City, Yamagata prefecture.
Our Kyoden factory obtained FSSC 22000 certification in December 2017.
Our raw material uses only Surumeika (Japanese Frying Squid) of Freezing factory ship which goes north of Japan Sea.

Surumeika can live in water from 5 to 27℃, and tend to inhabit the upper layers of the ocean. They are short-lived, only surviving about 1 year.
Surumeika of Japan has very long history, and Surumeika is offered as a tribute to the Imperial court from ancient times. Surumeika is still auspicious goods now. Surumeika was an important export item to China and Southeast Asia with the Japan-Ming Trade in the Muromachi period and the subsequent the trade between China and countries in the southern sea (Indochina, Malay and etc). It lasted until the Meiji / Taisho period.
