Makurazaki France Katsuobushi emerged in 2013, intending to spread dashi authentic flavor through Europe where finding high-quality bonito can be challenging. Makurazaki city is known for its three centuries-long history and craftsmanship regarding bonito. Together with the seafood transformation Cooperative of Makurazaki, the undeniable capital city of katsuobushi, ten companies joined forces to achieve the Makurazaki France Katsuobushi project. This project has set sail to Concarneau beaches in Brittany because of the similarities of its harbor with Makurazaki one. Despite difficulties regarding regulations, Makurazaki France Katsuobushi learned to adapt their production methods to stay faithful to the dried bonito Japanese traditional way of production while following European regulations. Besides simplifying access to authentic bonito to the world, Makurazaki France Katsuobushi also wishes to spread the use of katsuobushi in local cuisine worldwide.
