About us

Our Nori is not produced for the mass-market, but for those who value and enjoy high quality flavor!

 Today almost all Nori growers deliver the entire harvest that they have cultivated with care to their fishery cooperatives. Unfortunately, virtually the only criteria the mass market cares about is “blackness” and “sleekness”. The qualities that are so important for delicious Nori - “crispness”, “mouth feel”, “flavor”, and “umami” - are not taken into account. Because of this, many cultivators feel obliged to produce Nori that scores well for exhibitions rather than for flavor.
