I was able to try the noodles that I made using local ingredients. This allowed me to get a really good idea of the products.


Being introduced to local associates gave me confidence.


Going to Japan is costly and takes time, so I was happy to be able to speak directly with representatives from the Japanese headquarters.


I was able to grasp the process of introducing a machine in the future.


I was surprised by how delicious the noodles were when I actually tasted them. They were much different than the noodles available in my country.
