I bet you’ve heard of Japan’s popular Shinshu Apple Kit Kat, but how about Shinshu apple sorbet? Using the finest apples grown in Nagano, Japan, Shinshu apple sorbet is so fragrant and refreshingly sweet, and it’s what we all need to feel like we’re back in the land of the rising sun!
Can’t wait to try it? There’s now an easier way to get exclusive fresh produce from different prefectures of Japan, without the need to take a flight, or even walk to the nearest Meidi-Ya.
Launch of Okinawa International Logistics Hub
Okinawa International Logistics Hub will be bringing a multitude of rare, fresh and seasonal produce as well as ready-to-eat items from Japan’s various prefectures to Singapore! With Okinawa as the southern gateway of Japan, it allowed good access to the ASEAN countries. Okinawa International Logistics Hub is able to deliver specialities from Japan to Singapore inexpensively and efficiently due to its accessibility to Naha airport, thereby ensuring the optimum quality of its produce.
Tiger Prawns, Snack Pineapple from Okinawa and Many More Agricultural Goodness
The Shinshu Apple Ball is just one of the items making its first-ever debut in Singapore.
Okinawa is renowned as the largest producer of tiger prawns in Japan, and one of Japan’s finest prawns – Ginoza Tiger Prawns. Each prawn’s clear and translucent flesh signals its premium quality and freshness. Frozen instantly at -40 degrees Celsius when they are caught, the prawns can be served as sashimi after defrosting. Sweet and tender, the Japanese tiger prawns are sure to be a delight amongst seafood lovers.
Another Okinawa’s pride and joy is the Snack Pineapple. The bright and yellow flesh promises a soft, fragrant, moderately juicy and tender bite. The flesh is soft enough to peel off by hand, with a unique central core that hits just the right note of sweetness. The Snack Pineapples have a high sugar content mixed with low acidity, which results in a sweet, candy-like flavour.
