What is Myojo USA?


■Celebrating the 30th Anniversary

Myojo USA was founded in 1950 as Myojo Foods, an instant noodle/dry noodle manufacturing company in Japan. The tradition of creating noodles was passed on to the States and thus Myojo USA was founded in Chino, California in 1991.

In 2021, Myojo USA celebrated its 30th anniversary manufacturing fresh raw noodles in the United States. Myojo USA will continue to deliver delicious Japanese noodles to all those who love noodles.


■Myojo USA and Myojo Foods, What’s the Difference?

Unlike Myojo Foods (明星食品in Japan), Myojo USA specializes in the manufacturing and developing of fresh, raw noodles for restaurants and homes. We are particular about the process of making our products so that you can taste authentic Japanese noodles, even in the States!

Ramen with fresh noodles

We are constantly taking on new challenges such as selecting the best pairing of noodle ingredients and soups, manufacturing noodles of different thicknesses and shapes, and developing vegan noodles. Noodles made in Chino, California are offered not only for retail but are also used by many ramen shops and other restaurants.

    What is the Staff Blog?


    ■Ramen Information from a Staff Member’s Perspective

    The previous blog introduced various information regarding noodles. The theme of the upcoming staff blog will be “familiar information from the staff’s perspective,” starting with trivia by a company manufacturing fresh noodles, a guide to restaurants that use Myojo noodles, recommended products, Myojo USA’s original recipes, events, and staff routines. Our blog will be sharing information that will allow you to feel closer to the company.

    Many of our staff members love ramen but also love cooking and eating. We hope that our blog will be a place to share a lot of “deliciousness”!

    In the United States, Hiyashi Chuka is also known as Cold Ramen. Boiled ramen noodles are chilled and served with a chilled sauce. Summer weather is approaching, and our seasonal Hiyashi Chuka is now on sale!
