Sanchi is a premium range of Japanese foods made in an uncompromising traditional manner from the highest quality ingredients and methods. To give you an example, our Sanchi Tamari (wheat free soy sauce made with barley and soya beans) is naturally fermented in cedar wood barrels for a minimum of 18 months. It is extremely rare these days to find manufacturers who still produce in this traditional, but high quality way. We won the Daily Mail organic new product of the year award with Sanchi Tamari when it first gained recognition in the trade. Our products are based on the macrobiotic principles of food production. The company who makes our product were the first Japanese food manufacturer to obtain organic certification in Japan in the 1980’s and we were the first company to introduce organic versions of our traditional products at that time. Our uncompromising views on quality of production, and ingredients means that you can enjoy unsurpassed flavour at anytime. See what we do at www.sanchi.co.uk
