About Us


Nikken Foods was founded in 1964, the year Tokyo became the first Asian Olympic host city. Established in Osaka, Nikken headquarters moved to Shizuoka in Japan’s heartland—a location ideal for R&D and manufacturing—in 1976. Our headquarters remain in Fukuroi City, also home to the main Nikken factory.
