Company InfoCompany Info

The district of Sanuki (now Kagawa Prefecture), on Shikoku Island in Southern Japan, was long famous for salt production. Sanuki's shoal beaches produced 80% of Japan's salt for many years. The ample sunshine and open fields were also perfect for growing wheat and soybeans. This made Sanuki an ideal region for soy sauce production.

Since 1789, the year of the French Revolution, Kamada has been creating quality soy sauce in the Sanuki region, under our company motto of “producing the highest quality soy sauce, serving the community, and gaining public confidence.“ As times have changed, we have continued to develop new and innovative products while maintaining our commitment to quality and service.
