Our company was founded in 1947 as YASUMA Koshinryo store, which began wholesaling spices for use as ingredients, primarily by producers of sauces.
Since then, we have manufactured and sold spices, herbs, dehydrated vegetables, and other food ingredients to food manufacturers and other companies in the processed food industry. Wishing to deliver the scent of authentic spices to homes, in 1974 we launched Mascot brand spices in general retail outlets. This marked the start of our sales of small-bottle spices and herbs, carefully procured from select producer regions.
We take pride in the following strengths:
①A procurement network that can deliver spices, herbs, and other diverse ingredients and products from around the world, with a commitment to quality
②Provision of ingredients and products that can be used safely and with confidence, backed by our years of experience and continually refined technology, quality control, and research
③Application development capabilities that speedily meet customers' requests
As a member of the POKKA SAPPORO FOOD & BEVERAGE LTD. group since February 2019, we are starting our business under a new management structure.
Even as our management structure changes, we will seek to be a dependable presence that our business partners consider first to resolve their issues. We will do so under our corporate philosophy of "Taking advantage of our technologies and expertise as a specialty manufacturer of spices, herbs, and dehydrated vegetables, we will be a company that creates a new food culture with a commitment to safety and authentic taste."
We will develop products under the Mascot brand that open up new markets and can contribute to richer and more enjoyable dining tables in Japan.
To realize these goals, we will always think from the standpoint of customers and business partners, and will undertake business as a company that values the feeling of thoughtfulness.
We look forward to your continued support in the future.
