What is Muslim friendly Tokachi?
Tokachi is a region name of a part of southeast-Hokkaido, and it is famous for rich nature and various foods produced from the fertile land.
With this web-site, we would like to introduce Muslim-friendly products from Tokachi, which are alcohol-free and pork-free so that Muslim people can easily find and enjoy such items of Tokachi.
We carefully selected the ingredients for the products. For example, as regular white sugar distributed in Japan is usually purified with animal bones, the products shown in this site are not using sugar or using sugar with Halal certification. As for soy sauce, those products are using Halal soy sauce so that Muslim can enjoy with ease as regular soy sauce is often added alcohol as a preservative. We show all ingredients in descriptions of each product so that site visitor can choose by own decision.
If you have any interest for the product, you can contact each company with inquiry form.
