Founded in 1923 in Tokyo, Japan, S&B Foods Inc. produces and sells various spices, condiments, and cooking ingredients worldwide.
“Ume, or Japanese plum, is absolutely essential to the food culture of Japan. It’s a popular ingredient in onigiri rice balls, the central constituent of umeshu plum liqueur, and is used in a wide variety of food products including juices, jams and teas.
The top producer of this vital Japanese fruit is Wakayama Prefecture. And within the many varieties of ume produced in the region, the Nanko ume is by far the most popular.
The Nanko ume traces its origins back to the town of Minabe in the prefecture’s Hidaka District. The area is located in the central region of the prefecture, with long daylight hours, rolling hills and mild temperatures year-round thanks to the Kuroshio Current, which brings warm water north from Okinawa and the tropical seas. These kinds of natural features are ideal for ume cultivation.” - Japan National Tourism Organization.
