Message From the Management

Kineo Okada
Founder and President, Ariake USA

As the leading manufacturer in the field of natural seasonings, the Ariake Group has anticipated customer needs and strived to maintain and ensure food safety and high quality while working to expand existing businesses both within Japan and overseas and to actively develop new businesses.

Ariake Group has made major investments totaling around ¥20 billion over the past couple of years in order to expand the natural seasonings business throughout the world and has constructed a “global eight‑pillar system” with production and sales bases centered in Japan but also in the US, China, Taiwan, Belgium, France and Indonesia. This global eight‑pillar system has made it possible to create the optimal regional production system to ensure a stable supply of high-quality products and to meet all the needs of our many customers.

The Ariake Group is anticipating customer needs and more than ever, responding to customer expectations in Japan and further developing efficient sales strategies at each of our overseas bases.

The Group, trusting in its technical strengths and sales capabilities, will move ahead with efforts to maintain and expand existing markets and develop a new market to strive to increase sales.

We look forward to receiving your continued support.
