Best for your health. Our basic motto.

Do business that contributes to people's health.
The words of the 19th president of Miyasaka Family was the trigger to start producing miso, when our business was limited to Sake back in the days. In Japan, miso has been passed down from ancient times and with its benefits scientifically proven, miso is now attracting the strongest attention among all the health foods in the world.
Pursuing taste and setting “health” as our motto, Shinsyu-ichi Miso is aiming to further broaden and deepen the understanding of miso in the world.

Our Company Portrait

Our history began in 1662, as a sake manufacturer of ‘Masumi’ in Suwa, Nagano, Japan. Applying our excellence of fermentation technology, we started our miso production in 1916 based on our founding spirit to contribute to human health.

We are a long-established company of 350 years, but our history has been a stream of innovation, starting with the development of vitamin-fortified miso, hygienically bagged miso, and promoting expansion by the creation of the“Miko-chan”brand character. We have also commercialized freeze-dried,
reduced-salt and salt-free miso, and was the first in the industry to establish a sales office in America.

On September 5, 2016, the company joined to be a part of Sapporo Holdings as a consolidated subsidiary for further growth and expansion. On July 1st, 2017, the company name and message was changed to "Shinsyu-ichi Miso Co., Ltd. " and "Delivering delicious delight and health to everyday life".

As Sapporo Group aims to achieve a company brand with shining individuality in the field of "Alcohol", "Food" and "Beverage", we will maximize and make the most of the synergy with Sapporo Group as one company responsibility of the "Food" category. We, "Shinsyu-ichi Miso", stand committed to delivering high-quality "delight and health" to the everyday life of our customers by expanding our business of miso, instant miso soup and freeze-dried products.
