(Toa Shuzo Co., Ltd. obtained a whisky manufacturing license in 1946 and began manufacturing and selling whisky. Initially, we blended imported malt and stored it in barrels for sale, but in 1980, we introduced pot stills and worked on the production of our own malt whisky. However, in response to the wave of shrinkage of the whisky market, the distillery ceased to be distilled in 2000 and ceased to function as a distillery.) It was like what happened in Scotland, the home of whisky. One distillery (HANYU Distillery) disappeared in 2000. However, the malt made there escaped the fate of being discarded by a lone man and was waiting in a barrel for the day when it would come out into the world again. The distillery's founder's grandson, ICHIRO AKUTO, bottled it again as ICHIRO's malt after him.
We are a trading company whose main business is the import/export and domestic sales of raw materials for food and beverages. We own an ice cream factory called "Sun Honest (Numazu City, Shizuoka Prefecture)" as a subsidiary. In addition to regular ice cream, "Sun Honest" manufactures and sells extremely unique Japanese-style products. "KOoRI-SAKE" is an ice cream containing Japanese sake with 3 degrees of alcohol level. Allergy and additive-free, natural ice sorbet "AMAKOUJI Ice" uses AMAZAKE (rice malt) instead of milk, dairy products, eggs and sugar. We are also engaged in exporting our customers' products, confectioneries, beverages, foodstuffs with our raw materials to overseas markets. We have about 600 customers in Japan, whose products together number in the tens of thousands, and we can introduce a wide variety of products from our extensive lineup.
