Nippon Shokken

Since our founding in 1971, Nihon Shokken Group has accomplished continuous growth and has become internationally distinguished. As we continue to expand, we aspire to promote the development of “deliciousness” and “convenience” in food culture through the research, production, and sales of sauces and seasonings.

Nihon Shokken Group began American operations in 1988 with opening its Los Angeles Sales Office in Torrance, California. As a subsidiary of Nihon Shokken Holding Co. Ltd., the company initially imported and distributed sauces and seasonings made in Japan throughout the U.S. Great reception of our products allowed our company to open other branches nationwide which encouraged the foundation of Nippon Shokken U.S.A. in 2006.

In April 2013, after being captivated by the beauty of the region’s resources and surrounding food culture, the newly named company established roots locally through building a new manufacturing facility in West Sacramento and started domestic production of products in June 2013. From this 70,000 square foot head office and plant, we produce fresh, high quality products for our valued customers as we embark on furthering and delivering new innovations to food culture in the U.S.

The success Nippon Shokken U.S.A Inc. has experienced is due not only in part to the hard work and contributions of every employee, but also to the loyal business of our customers. On this note, we appreciate your continued support and encouragement to achieve our vision.
