Who are we?

Our mission

Our mission is to produce living organic products that will maintain or improve your health and reduce the incidence of problems linked to food intolerance.

We produce uniquely natural products – functional foods, nutraceutics, prebiotics and probiotics. Our products are high in nutrients, rich in enzymes and in lactobacillus.

The Company

Established in 1999, our home-grown company has produced organic, non-pasteurized, long-fermented miso (more than 5 varieties), damari (tamari from miso) and VitalKal which, in its actual form, is unique in the world. We are the only company in Canada, east of Toronto, to offer this line of products.
