About KAGOME


A Pioneer and Leader in Japan's Tomato Business

The first budding of tomatoes he had grown himself - this was where it all began way back in 1899 for KAGOME’s founder Ichitaro Kanie when he at last succeeded in cultivating tomatoes in Japan. Not long after this achievement, Kanie expanded the scale of tomato cultivation and began to develop operations that eventually became a tomato processing business handling sauces, ketchups and juices. His endeavors established the foundation of what KAGOME is today.

We have been in the tomato business over more than 110 years. Not only did we pioneer tomato processing in Japan, today we are the country’s undisputed industry leader in this sector.
