offers you an amazing opportunity to learn about the most advanced noodle making machines for ramen, udon and other types of noodles, as well as to boost your noodle business expertise
If you are a food business entrepreneur it may be very difficult to find enough time to look around and think of the ways and means to broaden your horizons, learn new things, and raise your professional skills and level of expertise in the field — all of which are necessary to stay ahead of competition and keep bringing your business and products to the next level of excellence.
To be able to do that you may need to get away from your place, and put yourself into a different environment to experience something beyond your everyday life.
Yamato is the best place where you can accomplish that for the following reasons:
To begin with, throughout many decades of our history, we have trained thousands of future noodle cuisine and noodle business professionals who went on to achieve great success in ramen, udon, and soba food service industries.
Second, we are located in Kagawa prefecture, which is the home of Sanuki Udon, the world’s most famous and popular type of udon noodles. And this is where you can visit hundreds of unique authentic udon restaurants that serve inspiring bowls of udon.
Third, we designed the most efficient machines that allow anyone to make authentic Ramen and Udon noodles regardless of their experience and skills.
In addition to training courses that have prepared thousands of ramen and udon professionals over the many years, we have created a comprehensive package of content and consulting services that can help you grow and keep your business successful.
LEARN EVERYTHING YOU NEED IN ONLY ONE DAY
In May 2023, Yamato is delighted to offer a series of special one-day workshops where participants will be able to familiarize themselves with the most advanced noodle-making equipment and technologies, as well as learn all the know-hows, and business management techniques they may need to succeed in noodle business.
SPECIAL SEMINAR BY KAORU FUJII
Among other activities, during the day that you spend at Yamato HQ you will be able to participate in a special seminar presented by Kaoru Fujii – the CEO of Yamato MFG, a pioneer in designing and developing noodle-making equipment in Japan, and a world-famous authority in noodle cuisine and noodle business. During the workshop, you will be able to learn about the latest trends in noodle cuisine, and what you should do to be successful in noodle business in 2023.
JOIN YAMATO TO ENJOY THE MOST DELICIOUS UDON IN THE WORLD
During the lunch, participants will be able to taste fresh noodles made on Yamato udon machines. Having dedicated more than 45 years to the research of noodle quality and texture, as well as conducted intensive udon courses for over 15 years, Yamato is in the best position to offer our guests the best udon noodles in the world.
Enjoy the taste, learn techniques and recipes, and ask any questions to our staff and school instructors!
EXPERIENCE CUTTING EDGE NOODLE MAKING TECHNOLOGIES AND THE MOST ADVANCED NOODLE-MAKING MACHINES
Participants will be able to get a hands-on experience of our latest noodle-making machines for udon or ramen noodles.
With SHINUCHI and the recently developed dough pressing machine – AFP – you will be able to make Udon of the most exquisite quality, and stay ahead of your competitors. AFP dough pressing machine is a unique piece of equipment designed to automatically produce dough with the same texture and characteristics as the one made using authentic foot-stomping techniques that noodle masters have been using to make udon in the past.
RICHMEN GOLD 2 is our most advanced Ramen noodle-making machine for mid-scale production of craft ramen noodles designed for restaurants, restaurant chains and micro/mini noodle factories.
Not only has Richmen Gold 2 inherited the ability to produce the same outstanding noodle quality, but owing to its greater automation it has greatly surpassed Richmen Gold 1 in terms of ease of use, productivity and performance.
When we designate Richmen Gold machines as “micro noodle factory” we actually mean it:
with only a small footprint that allows them to be installed and operated in a small room they can ensure a factory-scale production output of several thousands portions per day with outstanding craft quality.
YAMATO product lineup also includes other types and models of food making and processing equipment.
Eggs with runny yolks – the ones typically boiled for 6-8 minutes – are extremely hard to peel without damaging the whites because they are very soft and easy to break. With that in mind, we developed GOLDEN EGG – a machine capable of peeling that type of eggs at a rate of 1 egg in 6 seconds. Using this machine, our customers can save a lot of time and get less loss compared manual peeling.
One of the most time and labor consuming tasks Ramen shops have to do is stock straining / filtering. Since Yamato always tries to make operation of our customers easier and more efficient, we developed a technical solution that allows them to save a lot of money and time – RICHSOUP – an automatic stock-straining machine.
Using this machine helps to improve production yield, reduce the time spent on stock straining, and improve the taste and flavor of your soup. There are even more benefits RichSoup can confer, such as improving job turnover rate (by freeing workers from physically demanding tasks of stock straining). So, it’s definitely worth the investment for any ramen shop that cooks its own ramen soup stock.
During this special in-person workshop, you will be able to see how it operates, and how efficient it is.
THE BEST HOSPITALITY
Aside from a lunch with the best Udon noodles, we will also invite you to taste another famous local delicacy – a chicken leg roasted and grilled using special techniques and seasoned with a special mix of spices (“honetsukidori“).
Also, before and after the tour, you can visit and try other noodle shops of our recommendation to learn what they serve, and how they operate their business.
We will also ask you in advance about what particular aspects of ramen or udon you want to learn, and what kind of machines you want to test to help you fill what you are lacking. We want to be prepared to answer all your questions and needs.
… And, of course, now may be one of the best times to visit and experience Japan, since Japanese currency is almost at its lowest peak in more than 30 years!
Individuals or companies who are either already engaged in noodle-related food service business or who seriously consider improving their quality / increasing their output.
Up to 10 participants per 1 day-long workshop.
