As a fan of HM, I was really lucky to get to visit their factory and see how the musubis are made.
Everything is taken seriously so quality is ensured with high hygiene standards.
Before you enter the factory, you have to get vacuumed for any dust or stray hair, scrubbed 2 times, enter a drying room and then wear protective gear from head to toe.
At the product launch event, we got a preview of the Jumbo omusubis and the healthy mixed rice series that will be launched on 8th July 2019.
Jumbo Omusubi series:
Okinawa style ham and egg Jumbo Omusubi
Black pepper and chicken and burdock roots jumbo Omusubi
Grilled salmon with cod roe mayonnaise Jumbo Omusubi
Healthy mixed grain series:
Pork and vegetables in Okinawa style:
We even tried our hand at making some omusubis.
When we left, we were given this lovely box which lights up when opened.
Inside was the new musubis we tried, Koshihikari rice and Amazake drink.
