Ham/Delicatessen & Frozen Food

Air Water's Food Products Business is centered on three brands: Saveur and Syunsetsu, which are based in Hokkaido and have won national acclaim, and Sagami Ham, which has strong brand prestige in Kanagawa Prefecture and the surrounding southern Kanto region.
This business uses its high-quality ham and delicatessen products, which command 30% of the domestic uncured ham market, and its frozen food ingredient products as its core areas for its development of products for general consumers and commercial customers. Furthermore, it is actively working to add many new products to its lineup, including Hokkaido candy and original cooking sauces developed and produced at its own facilities, and is finding a large base of customers nationwide, including supermarkets, hotels, restaurants, restaurant chains and school cafeterias.

Saveur (for commercial customers)

Saveur's frozen food ingredients, ranging from livestock products and agriculture products to fishery products, as well as its cooking sauces for commercial use and candy are highly evaluated by famous hotels and prestigious restaurants across the country. This business had its origin in Air Water's “cryogenic technology” that makes full use of liquefied nitrogen and liquefied carbon dioxide. By quickly freezing selected delicacies of the season from Hokkaido and from around the world, Saveur delivers high-quality, safe, and reliable products to customers throughout the country.
