We make charitable donations to better the South American farming communities that produce the quinoa that Nippon uses. Contributions go toward improving access to basic education and agricultural training in these communities.
Protecting public health via food safety is, and always has been the top priority here at Nippon. We have maintained the exacting Japanese standards of cleanliness in our facility, and have evolved alongside the industry as food safety has continued to advance over time.
We are GFSI-certified under the SQF system, and undergo rigorous audits each year to ensure we are meeting the industry gold-standard of food safety.
All lights onsite have been upgraded to energy-efficient LED lighting which power down automatically to save energy when the room is not in use.
We also participate in a local voluntary energy-conservation program where our site restricts energy use when requested by local utilities during times of heavy demand.
We recently completed the transition to solar power with the construction and installation of our new solar arrays. Nearly 100% of our power usage is now offset by the sun's energy.
At the most fundamental level, our freezing applications are powered by nitrogen: the most abundant element in the air we breathe and a natural part of Earth's atmosphere.
In comparison, the freezing methods commonly used by others in the industry include carbon dioxide or ammonia, which are harmful to both the environment and health.
"We strive to nourish the world with healthy, safe food as we all progress together into a cleaner, greener future."
