Produced by: Tretes co ltd
The main ingredient of Dried Konyaku is 'Mukago Konyaku' which is naturally grown in Tretes, a mountainous area in the Java province of east Indonesia.
The Dried Konyaku product was first produced by Seijji Ishii, a Japanese soldier who had to remain in Indonesia after World War II. His dream was to help develop a good relationship between Japan and Indonesia, and he created a product which allowed this to be possible. His friend Tetsuhide also helped make his dream come true by setting up the exportation of Dried Konyaku to Japan.
Today, Seiji's original Dried Konyaku farming business in Indonesia, Ambiko, is managed by his grandson, Johan. It provides jobs for many members of the community, including lots of women who work in his farm and factories. The Dried Konyaku food distributor in Japan, Tretes, is now managed by Tetsuhide's grandson, Kei Nakagawa. Products are packaged by people who work in welfare work place for the disabled and it helps them to participate in social community.
