Handling miscellaneous beans of selected quality.

We handle carefully selected ingredients from all over the world, such as domestic red beans, kidney beans, soybeans, imported azuki beans, kidney beans and other nuts.

We have our own bean sorting plant in Japan, and we strive to provide a stable supply of products that meet the needs of our users.

We also deal in a wide range of processed products such as beans, minor grains, nuts, etc. We assemble the products from raw materials to processing and offer various proposals.

Double sorting at our own sorting plant

In particular, the sorting of azuki beans and minor grains for use in bean jam production, where the quality of the product is greatly affected by the raw material, is done at our own sorting plant, and all sorting is done by double sorting.

The sorting process consists of two steps as follows and removes the foreign materials by magnets afterwards.

  1. Raw Material
  2. Polishing
  3. Wind Sorting
    (wind blows away cracks and skins of beans)
  4. Stone-Removal
  5. Grain Sorting
  6. Color Sorting
    (sorting food and minerals by infrared radiation)

Using an improved version of an existing sorting machine

For color sorting, factories in general use the method of irradiating infrared rays from three points, but this method has the disadvantage that it is difficult to detect foreign objects because it is an inspection at "points". However, Sanko Shokuhin uses a 360-degree infrared ray to perform a "surface" inspection, which results in extremely high sorting accuracy.

In addition, Sanko Shokuhin conducts strict quality checks using advanced sorting technology, and takes great care to ensure the quality of its products by eliminating contaminants.

Merits of scale and thorough aftercare

We have an advantage of scale as we deal with major manufacturers and are able to provide high quality products at low prices, and we take the utmost care in our after-sales service. In addition to miscellaneous beans, we also handle a wide variety of food products to meet the needs of our customers and offer various proposals, which have been well received by our users.

We will continue to strive for a stable supply of safe and secure products by carefully selecting production areas and raw materials and by establishing traceability of our products, and we will promptly respond to the needs of our users.
