  • Description

    SYNOPSIS: Kikkoman Foods, Inc., makers of that oldest prepared condiment known to man---soy sauce, has located its first production plant outside Japan in Walworth, wisconsin, 70 miles from Chicago.

    Business leaders from Japan, as well as from the U.S. joined in the traditional Japanese dedication ceremonies of the nine million dollar plant. The spectacle and artistry of the grand opening was uniquely Japanese and befitting the Kikkoman enterprises which has been manufacturing soy sauce since 1630.

    Kikkoman decided on this location in the heart of the soybean-wheat area to achieve the greatest efficiency in order to keep up with the increasing demand for soy sauce in this country and Canada. Two and a half million gallons is the current annual target production figure. Besides the manufacturing of 300 bottles of soy sauce a minute, using a secret family formula, the plant will house an extensive research department.

    This plant, combined with other Japanese companies setting up factories here will help reduce America's balance-of-payments deficit.
