Sato Foods Co., Ltd. was the first company in the mochi rice cake producing industry to develop technology to aseptic-pack mochi piece by piece, which it commercialized as the “Steaming-Hot Sato no Kiri-Mochi Single Pack,” the company’s representative product. We realized the convenience for our customers to eat any amount of mochi any time they like.
The company further took advantage of the aseptic-pack technology acquired through the production of mochi, and automated the production process. The company developed aseptic-pack cooked rice, which enables freshly cooked rice to be packed while preventing microbial contamination and be shelf-stable for ten months.
The company aims to further expand the market size as the leader of the mochi and cooked rice production industry.
From now on, it is expected that the conventional family structure will change, and the individualization of eating habits will further advance along with the alteration of people’s lifestyles, such as an increase in nuclear households and those who live alone, and the progress in the aging of society.
Our company will evolve our business to pursue convenience for our customers with such backdrop.
