When it started  

CHOYA’s history started in 1914, as a viticulturist. An encounter with ume – a fruit grown in Japan to world-leading quality has led the company to begin developing a wide variety of products. We are determined to continuously accomplish our endless appetite for exploration, and our impressive technical expertise developed through pioneering research; in order to deliver outstanding products to consumers all around the world. Umeshu is the flagship we have chosen to communicate the spirit of Japan to the rest of the world. This is our mission at CHOYA.
