Company Overview

Company Overview

Kuze Fuku & Sons contemporary foods and beverages are made in Oregon by St.Cousair, Inc., the US subsidiary of St.Cousair Co., Ltd., the Nagano-based maker of gourmet cuisine in Japan. St.Cousair was founded by Ryozo Kuze in 1976 from a jar of apple jam that his wife, Mayumi made to serve guests at the ski lodge they were running in Nagano. The jam and many of Mayumi's homemade dishes were greatly enjoyed by their guests. For more than forty years, Ryozo ran the company with a passion for food that offers a charming, homey taste from the freshest and most natural ingredients possible. Customers in Japan can now enjoy St.Cousair products at 150 retail stores across the country.

Carrying on their parents' legacy with the same passion, sons Ryota and Naoki created the KUZE FUKU & SONS brand to bring specialty traditional and modern Japanese food to the USA and to the world. St.Cousair Inc. has invested in a factory in Oregon to be closer to raw materials and to source fresher ingredients for our food products. KUZE FUKU & SONS now proudly brings farm produce to your dining table!
