Product FAQs

What are the best before dates?
Each product comes with its own label and expiration date. The expiration is written in Japanese: 賞味期限 (shou-mi-ki-gen) and the format is yyyy/mm/dd. 

See product details below for individual product information.

Do your products come individually packed?

Where do I leave a review?
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.

The weight of this product has been changed. Also, to provide you with a better shopping experience we are slowly welcoming additional free-range pig farmers to our pork product ranges. This product will now be from either El Paso Ranch, Nakano Farm or Curly Flats Farm of Hokkaido - all from the same location, raising all-year free-range pigs without nasties. There is no difference in quality or package size. See more below.

Please note that we are unable to accept requests for a specific farm or fat content regarding this product. Thank you for your understanding.

300g (10.6oz) of ground pork/mince made from the leg or thigh meat. The natural fat/meat ratio of pork leg and thigh is 20/80 - which is the perfect balance for juicy ground pork. Taken straight out of the freezer and placed in cold water they can be defrosted in less than 45 minutes.

100% real free-range and naturally raised pork from Hokkaido, Japan, probably the only place in Japan that has space for free-roaming animals. Happy as a pig in mud. Bathing in the nearby river during summer and playing around on the snowfields in winter - that's the happy life of the pigs that are raised completely free-range in Hokkaido. And when we say free range we mean the real deal free-range. Spring, summer, autumn, and winter - 24 hours, all year free-range. The images below are actual photos of the farms.

Free-range pork, in this case, pastured pork tastes different because it is different! The pigs are able to exercise freely and build natural muscles without the aid of growth promoters. They get to wander and forage with the herd and interact and do not suffer the same stress as intensively farmed pigs. Give it a try and taste the difference! Raising pigs free-range on open pastures is an extremely cost-intensive operation that makes free-range pork more expensive compared to conventional pork products.

Translated from Japanese: I keep it in stock to make soboro bowl for lunch.
I mixed it with finely chopped mushrooms and season it with sugar and miso.
I just make it in the evening and put it on rice in the morning. It’s convenient.
