We are a frozen sushi pioneer, founded 27 years ago

POST GOHAN NO SATO Co.,Ltd. manufactures and sells frozen sushi including Inarizushi (fried bean curd stuffed with vinegared rice), Sharidama (small oval-shaped vinegared rice for sushi) and Makizushi (sushi roll) mainly for commercial use. We have many loyal customers in various business categories such as hotels, restaurants, Izakaya (Japanese-style pubs), karaoke establishments, amusement facilities, hospitals and nursing homes throughout Japan. Food professionals including chefs say "If you mention frozen sushi, POST GOHAN NO SATO comes quickly to mind." We are a famous frozen sushi manufacturer in Japan.

We are proud that our products never lose their flavor even if they are thawed due to our advanced fresh-freezing technology and proprietary rice cooking technology. Japanese are fussy about the taste of rice, which is a staple food, and put importance on its subtle texture. We have made efforts to improve our products in such an environment. Our products are now highly appreciated in Japan. Customers have said “It doesn’t seem like frozen food” and “the rice tastes good” which just goes to prove it. In recent years, Japanese food has become very popular worldwide and more and more people have enjoyed it. We would like people around the world to be able to easily enjoy the real taste of sushi, which is very popular among Japanese, through our frozen sushi.

We are committed to quality management

Our quality management to assure food safety and provide peace of mind

We have adopted a food safety management system complying with Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP), a sanitation management technique. We predict food safety hazards in the whole process from acceptance of raw materials to manufacturing and shipment, identify the critical control points (CCPs) and constantly monitor those points. With this system, we prevent defective products without missing any problems.

 

Managing the factory by making efforts to continuously improve operations

The food manufacturing business starts at the production site. Therefore, the process of improving the factory never ends. Factory workers including employees propose improvements and make efforts to improve the quality, efficiency and productivity every day. With the theme of 5S (Seiri (orderliness), Seiton (neatness & tidiness), Seiso (cleaning), Seiketsu (cleanliness) and Shitsuke (good manner)), we always clean up the factory and premises and learn the attitude and behavior of food manufacturing professionals.

We reproduce a genuine Japanese taste by simple cooking
