About Marutoku

Japanese food quality We are more than happy to accept orders from overseas.
If you or your company is interested in any of our products,
please do not hesitate to contact us.

We began processing nori at the HAMANO TOKUSOU SHOTEN in Hiroshima City in 1949. Since that time, development and introduction of state-of-the-art technologies, such as our patented Nori automatic heating and drying machine and the Nori Foreign body Detector, has enabled us to consistently produce nori of the highest quality. Our products meet the strictest of health standards. In 2008, we acquired the Hiroshima Prefecture Food Voluntary Hygiene Management Certificate.

To drive overseas sales, we have designed eye-catching packaging that evokes images of Japan. This makes our products, not only delicious snacks, but great souvenirs and gifts too.

By exploring consumer needs through research of popular products at business fairs and in meetings with related businesses, it is clear nori is a food choice that has great potential among consumers who are increasingly concerned with dietary health.
