Our corporate mission is to contribute to the maintenance and improvement of our customer's health. We have diligently continued to produce low-salt Umeboshi to fulfill the wish of our customers to maintain good health through the food they eat everyday.
Regarding the reduction of salt intake, it was announced by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare in April 2015 that Japan as a whole will strive for a reduced salt-intake. Now, low-salt products are essential for all categories of food. This need immediately caught Tonohata's attention, and led to Tonohata's innovation for low-salt Ume products.
Recently, Tonohata developed products with a 3% salt content, which has a salt content that is at least 50% lower than previous products, and are now available in many supermarkets.
Furthermore, products with 1.5% salt content have already been produced, and we are currently working towards the next steps of its' development.
