Japan is the world’s top consumer of paste products. However, in the last 30 years, consumption has been reduced to less than half, and the people are moving away from surimi products. By the time I entered the surimi industry, “OSECHI” dishes were made at home every year at the end of the year, and “KAMABOKO” was included in them. However, lifestyles have changed in recent years, and the consumption of “KAMABOKO” and paste products is decreasing along with the “OSECHI” that is not being made gradually.
The paste product is delicious anyway. It’s also a high-protein, low-calorie diet food. I hope that people all over the world will eat this paste product.
I Joined a top brand surimi product company in Japan and has been worked in manufacturing surimi products for 40 years. In 1995, I was stationed overseas for the first time overseas and contributed to the development of the Thai surimi product industry. There are eight countries that have provided technical guidance, including China, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Indonesia, India, Malaysia, and Myanmar.
I hava a wealth of knowledge and experience regarding surimi products, focusing on quality control, manufacturing control, and product development.
You can use what I have experienced in the surimi industry for 40 years, the knowledge I gained from working on surimi, and the technical data in making surimi for those who make surimi. I hope it helps. That is the proof of living in my life.
