In 1972 (1972), we invented roll sushi machine first in Japan, since then, we have been a pioneer in Japanese sushi roll machine field.
At that time, being able to take out sushi rolls became consumer's major demand in the Japanese economic growth period, and that is why mass-produced sushi was required.
The take-out roll sushi is the beginning of a new Japanese food culture and eating habits, and as a result, roll sushi machine was born and became popular.
However, at the time there was no skill, knowledge, practical information about the sushi machine, and our inventions were not able to make sushi as high quality as
professional sushi craftmen did. It was a complicated product with many troubles and troubles. Furthermore, there were a lot of sushi rice from different sushi rice kinds, sushi vinegar types, ,many ways of cooking rice, so that the development of sushi machines was not simple and easy.
History of research and development for over 40 years
In the 40 years of growth and expansion of the Japanese sushi market, we have been developing, improving and updating our products with many customers.
Taking advantage of these experiences and technological capabilities in Japan, we are introducing and selling our product to over 50 countries in the world.
