"NORTH FARM STOCK" - Iwamizawa - The great taste of Hokkaido ingredients shines through in these products.
"NORTH FARM STOCK" is a brand that produces and sells unique foods made from delicious Hokkaido ingredients.
They have more than 100 items available, including juices, jams, sauces, pickles, pasta and pasta sauce, dip, and much, much more!
One of the first items that was produced by this brand was "mini-tomato juice."
I spoke with Senior Managing Director Ms. Mayumi Hayasaka about that product.
"In 1964 this brand was started as a saucepan selling company, we would give people recipe instructions when selling them saucepans. We began offering cooking classes to some of our customers, farmer's wives, which helped deepen our relationship with the farming community. One day a farmer came to us with a mini-tomato sauce he had made which was delicious...just delicious... We really wanted to let others across Japan, especially in the Kanto region, taste this wonderful sauce, and so we came up with the NORTH FARM STOCK brand."
Once the label started, the "mini-tomato sauce" was bottled in wine bottles and sold. The product was a hit in the Kanto region, and even made it onto in-flight snack carts!
Now let me introduce you to some more of their products!
Each product comes in a stylish package, making them perfect gifts. This holiday season consider giving the gift of a delicious Hokkaido treat to your family or friends!
