The rice craft chips “Zakuza” targets young people, mainly Generation Z, who are expected to be particularly conscious of the effects of dietary diversification and “time performance”, and are We aim to create products that allow you to easily enjoy the deliciousness of rice and rediscover the charm of rice.

Product Summary
“Zakuza” is a craft rice chip that is made with attention to detail, including the ingredients, the frying method, and the sound of the rice grains being chewed, in order to bring out the charm of rice to the fullest.

The rice used as raw materials is 100% domestic rice, and the secret ingredient is roasted brown rice flour. In addition to helping our customers rediscover the appeal of rice, which is Japan’s staple food, we are also helping to improve food self-sufficiency as a promotional partner for the national campaign “Thinking about Japan from food.

By incorporating the “grain-to-grain manufacturing method” used in our rice crackers, “Niigata Shikomi,” you can enjoy the unique and pleasant texture that only rice can provide.
