SHINMEI U.S.A. CORPORATION
Shinmei USA is looking for opportunities to expand rice consumption in the U.S. amidst the drastic decline in rice consumption in Japan. Shinmei USA has been promoting Japanese rice at Japanese supermarkets and promoting the high quality of Japanese rice at its Japanese restaurant, Wadatsumi. As recognition of the high quality of Japanese rice deepens, we are expanding our sales channels to the food service industry, including major hotel chains in Las Vegas. Shinmei USA will continue to take on the challenge of the U.S. rice market, which still has a lot of room for growth.
At the same time, Shinmei USA is actively engaged in contract farming with major suppliers and large producers in California, and exporting California rice to Japan at low prices but with stable quality.
SHINMEI FOODS U.S.A.
In August 2015, we completed construction of a plant in West Sacramento, California, and began supplying Asian-style frozen products to the U.S. market. While bread, pasta, and cereals are the mainstay of the food culture in Western countries, rice has recently been attracting attention due to growing health consciousness, gluten-free foods, and the registration of Japanese food as an intangible cultural heritage by UNESCO, and market demand is increasing every year. The Shinmei Group is working on this project to expand the culture of eating rice to the rest of the world by taking advantage of its expertise in rice procurement, quality control, rice milling and rice cooking technologies that it has cultivated over the years.
