At Hotta Katsutaro Shoten Co., Ltd., we constantly challenge limitless possibilities, striving to go beyond conventional paradigms.
The distribution system for green tea in Japan, for instance, is extremely complicated, having evolved over a long period of history. This complex system is so intricate that even tea distributors find it hard to fully grasp, let alone general consumers. Hotta Katsutaro Shoten has successfully established a shortcut, eliminating this needless complexity, by purchasing green tea - primarily Kyoto Uji Tea - directly from tea growers. As a result of this radical rationalization of the purchase routes of fresh tea leaves, as well as packaging materials , we are able to supply our products at affordable prices. Moreover, seeking to ensure safe and wholesome green tea, we initiated supplying organic tea with JAS organic accreditation more than 20 years ago, ahead of other tea businesses. In addition to tea growers in Uji, Kyoto, we now purchase tea from nationwide producers, while providing them with up-to-date information and guidance regarding tea cultivation techniques.
At Hotta Katsutaro Shoten, we are working to supply richly flavored tea at affordable prices. Above all, we pledge to ensure that all our products are safe and wholesome.
