First Miso Producer in Swiss Romande area
Hi, I’m Azusa, the founder of SWISSMISO. I’ve been living in Switzerland for more than 10 years. I discovered a fascination with Japanese cuisine outside Japan.
Japanese food is not only healthy and tasty but moreover, its philosophy is tied to the ecological approach. Local, seasonal ingredients are valued, recipes without wasting food are appreciated. As a Japanese, I’ve decided to carry on this culinary culture. That’s the reason why I created my small company!
We initiated this project as a way to bring consciousness to environmental issues. We couldn’t be happier, if the project inspires you to act something good for our land!
What is Miso ? Miso is a fermented soybean paste in Japan. It’s a key ingredient for making delicious Japanese dishes such as miso-soup. It’s used both in traditional and modern ways in Japan and has been gaining worldwide interest.
Based on Miso Paste, our popular product Miso-truffle (Instant homemade miso-soup) makes it easier to incorporate miso into your daily life!
Why you love SWISSMISO?
The reason is …
🌿 NO Plastic

🌿 NO Waste
All raw materials can be used, nothing is thrown away in the production process
🌿 LOCAL & Organic
We use only local organic ingredients;
-Organic Soybeans: Swiss Romande area

(*In Switzerland, it’s hard to get a sufficient quantity of rice)
It’s because Miso is a fermented food, good for digestion, better immunity, anti-aging with detoxification effects. It also boosts the number of beneficial bacteria, or probiotics, in your gut.
We make the miso using the traditional Japanese method
Plenty of UMAMI* inside! (*It’s one of the five basic tastes)
