We are a professional trading company of household goods for over 70 years.
We mainly handle kitchen miscellaneous goods, but we also deal with foods, cosmetics, and other lifestyle goods (made in Japan and overseas).

② Please tell us why you started to venture into the halal/muslim markets.

There was demand from hotel guests, therefore we started handling halal amenity (Sophim) for hotels.
However, we got feedback from guests from various industries who were looking at our products, so I felt that there was business possibility not limited only to hotels.
Now it’s not just amenities, but also sweets, emergency food and drinking water etc.
We have begun handling various items that were restricted by traditional barriers in handling halal.
