Thank you very much for your support. Every product page has a 'Leave a Review' section at the very bottom. Please feel free to leave an honest review. All reviews are anonymous and don't require an account. Once submitted your review will show up immediately and be public for everyone to see. Please do not include personal information.

Are your products Halal or Kosher certified?
We do not specifically carry or import halal or kosher products. Some items are labeled as kosher or halal by default from the country of origin.

Until what temperature can I sous vide the meat in their own packaging?
Our packaging is sous-vide ready (the process of cooking meat in their packaging in hot water for a prolonged time) for water temperatures up to 95°C (200°F). We do not recommend temperatures close to the boiling point but temperatures around 60°C (140°F) with a cooking period between 45 minutes and 3 hours, depending on the type and thickness of the meat.

We are pleased to announce this product is now certified organic by Japan's strict standards. The product has been produced in accordance with organic standards for some time, so rest assured there is no change in the content of the product.

One full bag of 1kg (2.2lbs) certified organic fresh frozen broccoli florets from Belgium, Europe. Regular size (not the mini kind) broccoli. No use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. GMO-free. Freshly harvested, blanched, and then individually flash-frozen (IQF) for freshness and quality. Broccoli florets are great for steak sides, entrees, soups, salads, pasta, and casseroles! You can steam them right in our microwave or enjoy them raw for delicious organic snacking. 

Blanching is a non-chemical simple process of scalding the vegetables for 60 seconds in 90°C (200°F) hot water and then shock cooling in ice water to stop the cooking process. Blanching stops enzyme actions that cause loss of flavor, color, and texture, it also cleanses the surface of dirt and organisms, brightens the color, and helps to preserve the vitamins.

About Certified Organic

This product is certified Japan Agricultural Standard Organic (JAS) - both in the country of origin and Japan. Japan has one of the world's strictest organic certification standards. But what does certified organic mean when it comes to fruits and vegetables?

✔ Strictly tested for E Coli, coliforms, molds, yeasts as well as listeria and salmonella and therefore meets very high microbiological safety standards.

✔ Free of harmful synthetic chemical inputs such as fertilizer, pesticides or any food additives.

✔ Free of genetically modified seeds (non-GMO)

✔ The farmland and soil in use are free of any chemical treatments.

✔ Organic produce is heavily regulated. Producers and importers are checked and inspected by governmental bodies or certified third parties. Organic certification requires detailed bookkeeping and documentation for 100% tracability. "Certified organic" is a protected word and the use is legally restricted.

✔ Organic farming is a more sustainable when it comes to holistic food production. The lack of harmful pesticides is better for the environment.

✔ Organic produce comes mostly from family-owned farms that own smaller acres of organic land.

It is also important to mention that organic produce is more cost-intensive. Organic farming has lower yields compared to conventional farming and is oftentimes more labor-intensive as well. Additionally, organic certification and auditions require annual fees for producers, exporters, and importers resulting in higher prices for the end consumers.

Please note that non-processed, non-GMO, and chemical-free produce will always have a minor degree of defects; these may include, decolorations, insect damage, broken damage, crumble damage, squashed damage, over or under maturity, and minor natural non-harmful mold. Although rare, there may worms, scratches or mold on the product that cannot be seen during inspections. None of these are harmful or a safety issue and can be removed without worries.

Translated from Japanese: The last time I ordered, they were small, but this time I was surprised by the large size of each floret.
I’m eating them in small portions because of their big size.

Great quality

These are so convenient to have in the freezer to add to any meal. It’s hard to find many organic veggies in our area so this is a good option.

Translated from Japanese: If you take them out of the bag, you can use them immediately.
The size of one piece is strangely big, like a potato.
I wonder if I should use them as they are.
I wonder if this size is normal in Belgium.
Frozen broccoli is hard to cut.
Although no chemical substances were used, I don’t know if I will order again.

Convenient and satisfying

Translated from Japanese: The bag contained large broccolis. They were good when I put them in a heat-resistant container and ate them easily after heating them up in the microwave.

Translated from Japanese: It's cut into bite-sized pieces, so it's easy to use and you can eat it with confidence, so I'm glad I bought it!
