Bringing delicious experiences from around the world

Since its establishment in 1960, Kataoka & Co., Ltd. has brought high-quality foods and beverages from around the world to Japan, and developed and produced its own line of inspired products for the Japanese market. These operations are guided by our corporate philosophy of "striving to contribute to affluent lifestyles by providing original, high-quality goods and services, created with a global outlook and flexible imagination."
At Kataoka, our essential approach is to develop products that anticipate the changing times, creating new markets and combining them with new sales channels from a multifaceted perspective. Kataoka is proud of the pioneering spirit and unique perspective with which it opens fresh consumer markets, and the pivotal role we play in bringing the culinary cultures of the world to the Japanese market. Today, Kataoka's operations are unique in Japan as an organic fusion of three core roles or functions: import of fine foods from around the world; production ofexcellent original products at Kataoka plants; and import and sale of ingredients.
Going forward, Kataoka will continue to rely on our ability to foresee market needs that has served us so well. We are committed to bringing moments of delicious experiences to Japan, one customer at a time.
