Marukome started business in 1854 in Nagano, Japan, as a local soy sauce brewer and miso soup maker.

After nearly 100 years of experience with soy sauce and miso, they started expanding and began supplying their products across Japan in 1948. By 1978, they were the top of the industry, being number one in all of Japan for miso paste sales.

Now they have a wide range of extremely popular products in Japan, including instant soups, organic miso powder and their flagship miso pastes.
