Ligurian taste now available in Japan


Last June 14th 2016 an important Japanese corporation Nishihara Shokai, (which has a network of 60 branches in the whole Japanese territory and distributes 100.000 different products to the Japanese food service industries) has decided to buy from Alifood a very high quality pesto sauce made with the real Genoese Basil DOP, produced by Azienda Agraria Anfossi, in Albenga and with Grana Padano DOP.

This is a very significant choice because among the varieties of pesto sauces distributed in Japan, the one traded by Alifood and imported by Nishihara Shokai, probably is the first real Genoese Pesto distributed in large scale by one of the leading Japanese importer.

Great Ligurian taste and flavor will be soon available and appreciated by many Japanese final consumers.

Genoese Basil DOP takes up an excellent space in the market. It is different from the other basil productions made in not advisable area or produced in not traditional way.

The DOP certification guarantees traceability and denomination control. The traditional packaging in bunches preserves the qualitative characteristics of the product, the labeling indicates company name and production plant.
