Morinaga Nutritional Foods, Inc. exports Mori-Nu® Silken Tofu worldwide! We’re sold in over 30 countries and welcome the opportunity to expand our presence even further.
Tofu is common in the Asian culture and becoming a staple in mainstream markets. Tofu is used in stir-fries, soups, salads, and hot pots and is a versatile ingredient that takes on the flavor of the dish. Alternative ingredients are driving growth in the traditional meat substitute segments, and tofu sales are up 40% in the U.S. alone. 1
Fueled by the rising demand for pantry food items, we are one of the only companies that manufactures shelf-stable, silken, creamy, and smooth tofu without preservatives. As the trend of plant-based food continues to increase in the U.S. and abroad, we know that eating healthy resonates with many consumers as people seek alternative protein in their meals. We have seen an increase in plant-based product offerings in categories such as dairy, cheese, meat, beverages, snacks, and much more, due to those wanting to adopt a healthier lifestyle.
According to The Soyfoods Council and Euromonitor, “59% of global consumers are now motivated to buy high protein foods, such as soy foods. For example, tofu is a cholesterol-free plant protein that offers all of the essential amino acids in amounts required to meet the nutritional needs of children and adults.” 2
We work with new customers and distributors in creating and customizing an export program that is right for your organization and your country. We are open to new opportunities and new business relationships that are mutually beneficial. Please contact us if you are interested in exporting tofu to your country or let us help you find your local distributor!
