"Only the best to make the best" is the statement behind our mission, which is to provide a means to minimize food preparation, while consistently using superior ingredients that meet the strictest quality control standards. Perhaps Mishima Foods Inc., can best be summed up in the following:
Message from the President
As we near the end of our first half-century, Mishima Foods, Inc. would like to offer our sincerest thanks to our customers who have been with us since the beginning, as well as extend a hearty welcome to all newcomers. We note, with gratitude, that the growth of Mishima from a small seasoning manufacturer to a recognized name in the food industry for pre-cooked, ready to use foods and seasonings, is due to all your support. Some of our customers whose names are familiar worldwide include Pizza Hut Japan and Denny's Japan. Skylark, a family restaurant chain in Japan, also joins our clientele. When we first entered the U.S. market, it was with the intent to introduce our "furikake" rice seasonings to the domestic Asian market. That goal has been successfully met, and our circle of customers has been steadily growing ever since. A large variety of furikake products is now being distributed nationwide. We have also begun to make inroads in the on-Asian market; our sesame mix seasoning, for example, is widely used in a number of local restaurants. Furikake and our other seasonings are just some of the highly convenient and delicious time-saving products that we offer. More recently, we began importing our new pre-cooked pre-packaged wild mushroom retort products. By targeting domestic restaurant operators of both western and non-western style cuisine, we are looking forward to expanding our distribution base. At Mishima, our focus is on hard work, cooperation and ingenuity, committing ourselves to providing you with new, exciting and delicious foods for your enjoyment. Fulfilling this commitment both domestically and abroad, is a source of pride for all of us at Mishima. Yutaka Mishima President
Mishima U.S.A., subsidiary of an established seasonings and prepared foods manufacturer headquartered in Japan with a subsidiary in Dalian, China, was founded in Los Angeles in 1988 to introduce "furikake" oriental seasonings to the retail Asian market. We received such an overwhelming response that we recently introduced our new food line to the mainstream market. This innovative new line is in the form of retort pouch products, made for us at our latest production site in mainland China.
