Fukuyama Jôzo was founded on Hokkaido Island in the north of Japan in 1892. It specialises in the production of soy sauce (the island being renowned for this crop). At the same time, the founder discovered how rich the region was: an abundance of sea food, very fertile soil, magnificent mountains… Fukuyama Jôzo chose as an emblem the Tomoe, an ancient Japanese heraldic symbol representing eternity. Often used in Shinto temples or on Hakodate port, it also represents the Aïnu people (an aboriginal people of the north of Japan). From the beginning, Fukuyama Jôzo favoured the use of local products for its delicious specialties and developed its quality range: seafood and produce from the land. Its motto hasn't changed over the years: offer healthy, flavour rich, safe food of the best quality there is.
