Firstly we apologize that we are not able to write personally to all our customers.
After more than 21 years we decided to end our business on May 31st 2019.
Last order possibility will be until May 25th 2019.
However our stock of miso is very limited and we cannot produce new miso anymore.
The rice & beans will not cause a problem.
We are very grateful that we could serve you; some customers only once, others for years.
Thanks to your many orders and positive reactions we were able to continue our passion.
But for the last years of our working life, we decided to give priority to our musical activities.
As for the miso, we found a Czech company that is producing a wide range of organic products, with the relevant controls and inspections, equal to the Dutch organic control system Skal. They had a long standing wish to produce miso as well. After initial meetings we made miso together in our factory and later in the Czech Republic.
They will use our equipment, know-how and recipes, in order to produce as close as possible our type of miso.
We expect them to be able to produce miso in a rather short period of time.
However, for the rice & beans we did not find a successor who would take over our activities.
But you can find most organic products in natural food shops.
At the end we wish all our friends and customers a healthy and prosperous future!
With kind regards,
Staas Swierstra & Sayuri Yamagata
