Tazaki Foods is Europe’s leading supplier of Japanese Foods. With over 2,000 products
in stock, we are the main supplier to all of the top Japanese restaurants and restaurant
chains as well as to the takeaway sushi industry including the major supermarkets
in the UK. We also supply the growing Asian fusion market meaning that altogether
we service over 500 restaurant customers who look to us for our quality products,
speedy and reliable service and our staff’s in depth knowledge of Japanese food.
Some of the key qualities that make us the first choice for Japanese food:
- Knowledge and experience second to none built up over 35 years.
- Privately owned: means short command chain and quick decisions.
- In-house technical department for rapid response to customer needs and confidence in food safety.
- In-house product development team to quickly develop products to any customer specification.
We take pride in the fact that we have more dedicated sales staff than all of our
competitors. These salespeople are fluent in a minimum of two languages (English,
Japanese and Chinese) and have been chosen for their detailed knowledge and respect
for Japanese food and Japanese food culture. They are backed up by a sophisticated
computer system that allows us to closely monitor stock so that we can meet our
customer’s requirements. If you have specialist requirements that are not covered
by our enormous range of standard products, we offer a bespoke service that will
allow us to source almost any Japanese ingredient, subject to EU import restrictions.
We can also offer this service to chefs who require any of the many specialist kitchen
utensils that are essential for Japanese cooking.
Our modern transport fleet of dual-temperature (ambient and frozen) vehicles tracked
by GPS satellites gives us the flexibility to offer two deliveries to central London
daily as well as covering the whole nation with regular deliveries.
Our advanced modern 30000sq foot warehouse includes a 3500sq foot freezer and 800
sq foot chilled capacity. We are the only specialist Japanese importer with a large
chilled facility dedicated to high quality sake and also the only importers
to use chilled containers for sake so that we can maintain our reputation as the
leading importer of sake in Europe. This is backed up by our dedicated sake specialist
whose job is to make sure that our customers receive the best expert advice and
supporting materials to make sake a key revenue generator for their business, as
well as bringing the pleasure of introducing one of the cultural delights of Japan
to the wider world.
