梅結び

In an auspicious(REI) month in early spring,

a breath of air is peaceful(WA),

ume flowers bloom like a lady makes up with a white powder in front of a mirror,

and orchids scent like wearing a fragrance.

”REIWA”, the name of the new era, was selected from a preface to
32 poems on ume flowers (“Umehana no Uta”) in Volume 5 of
the Man’yōshū - the oldest collection of classical Japanese waka poems.

What is Mizuhiki?
It is a band-shaped decorative string that is hung on the wrapping of gift bags and gifts to be given at ceremonial occasions and celebrations. It can be used for various purposes depending on its shape and color. Nowadays, there are many cases where the ones used are printed on Noshi and wrapping paper.

“CHOYA Ume-musubi” was named after Ume-musubi (ume knot), which is the standard way to tie Mizuhiki (ornamental strings) .

Ume-musubi represents having a strong bond because the knot is tight and cannot be easily untied. It is used as a lucky charm and an amulet at festivals as it is used to decorate ceremonial gift envelopes and gifts as a sign of celebration.

CHOYA FOODS
Philosophy

梅の実

Ume fruits are not eaten raw. It becomes edible when processed into products such as Umeshu or Umeboshi (pickled ume); however, this process requires other ingredients such as alcohol, sugar, and salt. Furthermore, it is not simply soaking in alcohol or pickling with salt; aging over time is necessary. It takes time and effort to make it naturally preservable and tasty.

There are many delicious fruits that can be enjoyed as they are. However, just like ume fruits that are not eaten raw, CHOYA FOODS cannot exist on its own. We are able to survive with the support of our employees, farmers, business partners and, above all, our dear customers.

To that end, CHOYA FOODS strives to create products that everyone can trust and enjoy. Based on a fruit that is a true blessing of nature’s five major elements as well as ingredients that can be found at anyone’s kitchen, we make delicious products genuinely and professionally.

Just as Umeshu and Umeboshi needs aging, we hope to establish a long-term relationship with each of our customers. If they can enjoy the quality and taste recognizing the value of CHOYA FOODS products, there is no greater joy than that!
