Company description

The Japanese Pantry imports and distributes artisanal Japanese ingredients from our warehouse in the vibrant Dogpatch neighborhood in San Francisco, CA. We have traveled all over Japan, meeting with artisanal producers of traditional ingredients. What we've found is amazing: perfectly roasted sesame seeds, kombu hand-harvested from the cold, clean waters off Hokkaido, tamari produced by a company over 200 years old, and rice vinegar made by a company so exacting that they grow their own rice, make it into sake and then turn it into vinegar. We distribute these special products to restaurants, specialty retailers, home cooks and distributors nationwide. And we aim to have our customer service be as high quality as our products.
