(English) Kyushu’s Favorite Instant Ramen Turns 35

(English) Umakacchan, House Food Group’s pork-flavored instant ramen, turned 35 on Sep. 12. According to the company, it has been the best-selling instant ramen in Kyushu since it went on sale in 1979. Before that, Tokyo-based House struggled in the Kyushu market with its soy flavored soup. It sent an employee from the quality assurance department to sample ramen from around Kyushu and determine what the locals liked. Instead of developing a product that might have wider appeal, House decided to develop a tonkotsu (pork bone) broth and infused the seasoning with the distinctive aroma of Kyushu tonkotsu. Umakacchan is now sold in 29 varieties in western Japan, primarily in Kyushu. Source: Nishinippon Shimbun 9/17

(English) More Fukuoka Fruits To Be Exported To Asia

(English) The JA agricultural cooperatives in 15 fruit-producing prefectures, including six prefectures of Kyushu, have teamed up to export strawberries and other fresh, seasonal fruits abroad. The initiative, which will begin in October, entails the establishment of dedicated sales counters in Hong Kong and three other countries/regions. Each prefecture will take turns selling its seasonal goods at the shops. The plan is gaining attention as the first step toward a coordinated “Japan-wide” export scheme. This scheme was undertaken in an effort to meet the rising demand for Japanese fruit in Asia. The participants are the six prefectures of Kyushu except Saga, Hokkaido, Aomori, Akita, Iwate, Yamagata, Miyagi, Yamanashi, Tokushima and Ehime prefectures. They will begin by selling six items—strawberries, peaches, grapes, apples, Japanese pears and melons—in high-end supermarkets in Hong Kong, Taipei, Bangkok and Moscow. Distribution will be handled by Fukuoka-based Fukuoka Agricultural Products Trading Co., Ltd. Source: Nishinippon Shimbun 9/14
