Mitoku’s motto is “Food Is Medicine.” Many traditional Japanese foods, such as miso, shoyu, green tea, umeboshi and kuzu have long been prized as tradition in the East for their medicinal qualities. Over the years, we have seen scientific research verify the beneficial effects of these foods on even such degenerative diseases as cancer and heart disease.

Mitoku has long been involved in the organic foods movement from early days, and in more recent years, has become involved in opposing the proliferation of genetically engineered foods. We are committed to upholding the highest standards of quality, even in the face of increasingly severe sales competition from products made by quicker, cheaper, mass production methods. After nearly fifty years, Mitoku remains strongly dedicated to the goal of supplying the best quality foods for individual and environmental health.
