Cheese

Since 1932, Meiji has been utilizing manufacturing expertise to craft delicious cheese from the richest raw milk. The Hokkaido Tokachi Cheese brand is a mainstay of our now extensive lineup of natural and processed cheeses, including Camembert, fresh mozzarella, sliced cheese, and portioned cheese.

We began with a passion to "change cheese in Japan," creating new tastes and encounters at the table that complement Japanese food culture. These principles have helped Meiji cheese rank third in the Japanese domestic cheese market with an 11.2% share.*

Three Facts about Meiji Hokkaido Tokachi Cheese

How does Meiji create the distinct flavor found only in Meiji Hokkaido Tokachi Cheese? We invented the Umami Lactobacillus Maturation technology to bring out the Umami flavors found in natural cheese. For Hokkaido Tokachi Smoked Camembert, we use low-temperature smoking to achieve a distinctive mild taste, smokey aroma, and delicate mouthfeel.

More than 60% of natural cheese produced in Japan comes from Tokachi, a region in Hokkaido located around the same latitude as the best cheesemaking regions of Europe. The climate is cool even in the summer, making it ideal for cheesemaking.

A hallmark feature of Meiji's Hokkaido Tokachi Cheese is its extensive lineup. Camembert and mozzarella are the most popular, but we also offer over twenty different types, including parmesan, cheddar, smoked, black pepper, quattro formaggi, reduced fat, sliced or string cheese, plus a rich umami blended cheese infused with Japanese Dashi.
