Our Story

Since 1950, when SOMI was established in Kyoto, we have made every endeavor to provide high quality soups and seasonings to the food service industry. Our products have been trusted and accepted as the cornerstone of rich flavors used by thousands of renowned restaurants across Japan.

SOMI’s most distinctive feature is our exalted reputation in soup crafting, especially for noodle-dishes such as Ramen, Soba, and Udon. These Japanese dishes have seen enormous growth in popularity as part of an international food phenomenon.

Due to increased demand for our products throughout the US, in June 2020, SOMI opened a new factory (USDA Meat and Poultry certified) in Blaine, Washington.

Alongside the worldwide development of Japanese food services, SOMI has expanded its operations across the globe. We are dedicated to our ongoing pursuit of crafting premium flavors, and will continue delivering the authentic taste of Japan direct to you.
