Fujicco Co., Ltd., one of the leading food producers in Japan, has launched products with the MicVac method, into the Japanese market. The new customer is a result of the close cooperation between MicVac and DNP. Fujicco’s brand Oissina! (Tasty!) will provide the Japanese market with a high quality range of complete ready meals.

The chilled food sector in Japan has now been expanded with high quality, extended shelf life products, produced using the MicVac technology. In their factory outside Tokyo, Fujicco Co., Ltd. recently installed a MicVac line to produce a range of ready meals that today are distributed through the Family Mart convenience stores and various supermarkets.

The product range currently consisting of five recipes are added value products where taste and quality are the most important factors. “Fujicco evaluated different production technologies, but when it came to nutrition, product quality and innovation level, MicVac was the right choice for them”, says Hirokazu Kushioka, Manager of the MicVac team within DNP.
