Toyo Suisan Kaisha, Ltd. (, T?y? Suisan Kabushiki-gaisha) or just Toyo Suisan (?, T?y? Suisan), is a Japanese company specializing in ramen noodles, through its Maruchan brand, seafood and frozen and refrigerated foods.[3] It is the fourth largest transnational seafood corporation.[4]


It was established in 1953 by Kazuo Mori as an exporter, domestic buyer and distributor of marine products. The Company entered the cold-storage business in 1955 and began producing and selling such processed marine food products as fish sausage in 1956.

Toyo Suisan and its consolidated subsidiaries subsequently expanded operations into such other business fields as instant noodles, fresh noodles and frozen foods.

At present, besides consumer foods for home use, they have a diverse range of easy-preparation food products for the commercial food service industry, including restaurants, specialty stores and industrial food service.[4]


The company operates three companies in the United States: Maruchan, Inc. in Irvine, California, Maruchan Virginia, Inc. in Richmond, Virginia, and Maruchan Texas, Inc. in Von Ormy, Texas.


Instant Noodles: the series of Japanese instant cup noodles, represents one of the best-selling products, other products include: non-fried noodles, and vertical-type cup series of instant noodles

Fresh Noodles: Toyo Suisan's fresh noodles command the top share of the fresh noodle market in Japan. Introduced in 1975, Sanshoku ("three pack") Yakisoba are the top-selling fresh noodles in Japan. Sanshoku Udon noodles (shelf life 15 days), and Mukashi Nagara No Chuka Soba noodles, are among the other products.
