Yamato Europe

Come visit us to experience the power of homemade noodle business

Netherlands office

Yamato has been active on the global market for more than 40 years offering its customers all over the world the most safe, efficient, and reliable commercial equipment for production of traditional Japanese and other kinds of noodles — Ramen, Wok, Lo Mein, Pasta, Udon, Soba — as well as professional culinary courses in Ramen, Udon and Soba noodle cuisines.

Having worked with thousands of established and aspiring noodle business professionals from all parts of the world we have learned it hard way how people focused on success may be wary, and rightfully so, to work with partners separated from them by great geographical distances and many time zones.

Yes, indeed, with a steady development of trans-national transportation and logistic routes, as well as with an unstoppable advance in technical means of communication, the world is undeniably getting smaller, but even if it has transformed into a ‘global village’, nevertheless people are still more inclined to trust those who are closer to them.

As Yamato highly values its European customers, and is strongly committed to developing its scope of operation on the European continent as well as the level and quality of support we can offer to our European clients, we are happy to announce the opening of our branch-office in Netherlands, choosing a location conveniently situated in the middle of Europe near a sea coast.

Yamato Europe

Japanese spirit. European outreach.

While removed from our Headquarters in Kagawa prefecture in Japan by more than 9 thousand kilometers and 8 time zones, our office near Amsterdam is so much closer to our partners and customers in Europe! And this is what matters most. 

The local staff conversant in English, Dutch and Chinese (backed by their colleagues from HQ and other branches speaking 6 different languages more) are ready to help you with choosing the right production equipment for your noodle restaurant or factory, practical culinary training in Ramen, Udon, Soba noodle-making and cooking techniques, noodle recipes and menu development, business counselling and ingredient suppliers information. 

From Helsinki to Lisbon, from Reykjavik to Athens – and from all places in between and beyond – wherever in Europe you are, Yamato is your trusted partner in noodle business.
