FAQ

(Q) What are your new products?
One is Hokkaido cream that you can freeze.
It’s whipped for cake decoration, or mixed up with meringue to make mousse.
The other is Hokkaido soft serve ice cream mix that you can freeze too.
It’s the main ingredient of soft serve ice cream.
They are the world’s first patented cream.
(Q) Why are they better than regular cream?
First of all, our frozen cream can maintain the same quality as fresh cream after thawing.
And also the cake with our patented whipped cream can be frozen.
(As you know, fresh cream can’t maintain its quality, once it’s frozen and thawed.)
This is the key point.
In addition, transportation costs by ship can be much lower than fresh cream by air.
Further, it can be used conveniently, whenever you want, as much as you want during its shelf life one year.
And of course, it has a rich flavor and a light texture.
