President's Greetings

We have expanded our business by following our founding motto “We contribute to society through the bakery business”, since our beginning in 1920. After the passage of time, bread manufacturing has modernized greatly, with improvements in quality and taste.
Though the basics of baking good bread, which requires high-quality wheat, have not changed from the old days. History and tradition are the accumulation of efforts pursuing quintessence and constant innovation; they are not the results of aimless continuity. At any time, in any age, development is not possible without a pioneering mindset.

With such a great history and progress, in 2003, we decided to integrate two brands of the company, Pasco and Shikishima, into one national brand name, Pasco. We see this development as our “second start”. We value the viewpoint of the many consumers who consistently enjoy our products. And with the first priority, we vow to pour all of our efforts into maintaining food safety and reliability with the accumulation of our efforts to pursue quintessence and constant innovation. We vow to enthusiastically and continuously create “consistent and essential products for society”.
We intend to venture into tomorrow ,keeping our founding mission in mind, under the motto of “Always Basics.”

President Atsuo Morita

Pasco's High-quality Products

  • Choujuku

    Since its launch in 1998, Choujuku has been a beloved Pasco flagship product. During development we worked to create a product suited to Japanese tastes, offering delectable flavor that customers would never tire of even if eaten everyday. At the time, a bread-making technique called “hot-water dough method” (mixing wheat flour with boiling water) was difficult to apply to mass production. Pasco overcame this difficulty with a proprietary technique, making it possible to offer the great taste of Choujuku on a large scale. Moreover, the product has continued to improve, and it is made without unnecessary ingredients to offer consumers both delicious taste and reliability.

  • Convenient Products

    In addition to placing importance on daily nutrition, Pasco also offers an arrangement of convenient products that meet peoples' needs during the morning rush or for a snack between meals. Stick-type breads that are easy to grasp even for small children, such as Tokachi Butter Sticks and Snack Pan, are representative examples that can meet customers' needs in any situation.

  • Healthy Products

    Pasco offers products that reflect the company's corporate philosophy, “for health and beauty”. They are an excellent match for increasing health-conscious customers. With a wide variety of healthy choices including rye, whole wheat, and fruit breads, we support customers who think about their dietary.

  • Functional Products

    The use of Panetone yeast gives Pasco's Long Life Bread series a shelf life of over one month without the use of preservatives. This series keeps a mild and delicious taste by Pasco’s original technique, offers advantages in a wide range of situations, such as stocking the pantry or taking meals on the go. Recently, it focused on reducing food waste.
