||Greetings from Japan
Hiroko Kodama here.
This company was founded in 1969 by my parents in Kitakyushu, Fukuoka, Japan.When my parents were in their 30s and 40s they got sick, but thanks to a diet of brown rice and lots of vegetables, and without any chemical additives, they recovered their health. My family has continued having home-made meals using fresh, natural ingredients, so I know from my own experience that natural foods are the basis for good health.
I have also studied a lot, firstly education, then public health at medical school, so I also understand well the theory of food and health. This combination of both knowledge and experience has convinced me of the importance of the relationship between food and health.
There are many different lifestyles and many different eating habits, so I recommend that each person eats the foods most suited to them in the way that best suits them. I want the world to know just how important food is to our health.
The sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted by all United Nations Member States in2015. Our company supports 1(no poverty), 2(zero hunger), 3(good health and well-being), 4(quality education), 6(clean water and sanitation), 12(responsible consumption and production), 14(life below water), and 15(life on land).
I deeply understand these goals thanks to my experience living and working as a volunteer for two years (1987-1989) in an aboriginal village in Sabah, Malaysia. I learned that lack of education, lack of food and lack of water serves to exacerbate poverty.
I also learned that rainforest clearance by wealthy nations such as Japan in their own selfish interests not only makes the gap between rich and poor even wider, but destroys the earth’s natural environment.
For this reason, it is very important to me that my work contributes to achieving these goals.
Thank you for taking the time to read my message.
We have 20 shops in Kyushu, Japan and regular pop-up shops in Singapore and Hong Kong, so be sure to check the date and locations of these on the “shops” page.
I hope you’ll come and say hello to me.
