This is leading to a decrease in resources and market prices.
To cope with this situation, an association of producers has specialised in the production of high quality dashi made exclusively from local raw materials.
Our perfect combination : It can be used as a substitute for fish stock or to make a high-quality miso soup, for eating with sômen or udon noodles or to flavor a Japanese omelette.
