The Tatebayashi Factory located next to the Headquarters House specializes in high-mix, low-volume production. Here, various types of soy sauce which enhance Japanese cuisine are manufactured.

Tall trees have been planted on the green area covering a quarter of the 75 thousand square meters of factory premises, as an environmental consideration. The brewing facility equipped with the latest technology allows efficient production while maintaining high quality.

Built in 2010, this Factory enables efficient production of sauce products, which are in increasing demand. State-of-the-art facilities and advanced technology ensure solid quality of the products.

SHODA SAUCES EUROPE CO., LTD. develops and distributes various sauces including soy sauce and soy sauce-based products. It serves as the base for Japan’s own Shoda to evolve into the internationally known Shoda.
