Our Story

Rich. Flavorful. Satisfying. And that’s just our story.

A Taste of Our History

Maruchan's story first began in 1953 when a young and determined Japanese visionary named Kazuo Mori started a small, frozen fish distributorship in Tokyo. Through hard work, commitment and perseverance, Mr. Mori's modest company soon grew into a successful food company, known as Toyo Suisan. And they weren't going to stop at frozen fish. We were just getting started.


The Art of Ramen

In 1961, Toyo Suisan branched out of the fish storage and distribution business and entered the instant ramen noodle business. They did so because they had a dream of creating a convenient, high quality, and affordable noodle product for all the people of the world. So, after gaining popularity in Japan, Toyo Suisan looked to challenge the new market in the United States and in 1977 Maruchan, Inc. started manufacturing ramen and smiles from Irvine, CA.


Our Promise

Today, we have manufacturing facilities across the country, bringing you all the classic Maruchan favorites as well as exciting new products each year. And as we continue to grow, we promise we will never waiver from the commitment to the highest quality and standards that Kazuo Mori founded in 1953. Those are the fine ingredients that made us. They are the flavors of who we are.
