The story of Maruchan began in 1953
When a young Japanese visionary started a frozen fish distributorship in the Tokyo area. This modest company soon became Toyo Suisan, one of the world’s, most successful food companies. Its founder, Mr. Kazuo Mori, maintained a commitment to study and perfect food products to increase quality and flavor.
In 1961, Toyo Suisan was becoming a diversified food company and entered the ramen noodle business with the goal to achieve higher quality noodle products which were then on the market in Asia. By 1970 Toyo Suisan ranked as one of Japan’s most prominent food companies. In 1972, Toyo Suisan entered the international market. Maruchan, Incorporated was formed in 1977 and opened its first, ramen manufacturing plant in Irvine, California. America quickly discovered the convenience and great taste of Maruchan Ramen Noodle Soups. Maruchan, Inc. has since grown to include three state-of-the-art food processing facilities from coast to coast. Maruchan has a company wide commitment to always maintain consistent product quality, soup after soup. You can depend on Maruchan for quality, and proven, new products all made with the highest of standards. For over thirty years, Maruchan has never wavered from its initial goal when it brought its own variety of ramen noodle soups to America. It was Maruchan’s goal to produce America’s highest quality ramen noodle products and never compromise product quality.
