Global instant ramen leader Nissin Foods to add operations in Greenville, S.C
"Nissin Foods has seen sustained sales growth year-over-year, especially over the last five years, driven by unprecedented demand for our products," said Nissin Foods President and CEO Michael Price (https://www.nissinfoods.com/)
Headquartered in Tokyo, Nissin Foods was established in 1958 in Japan by Momofuku Ando, who invented the first instant ramen noodle inspired by his belief that "peace will come to the world when there is enough food." In 1972, Nissin Foods USA opened its first plant in Gardena, California, thereby introducing ramen noodles to American consumers.
"Greenville is among the fastest growing manufacturing cities in the country, and many other top brands are produced there," added Price. "In addition to being a significant milestone in Nissin's history, this investment will allow us to optimize production capabilities, grow the organization, bring jobs to the community and continue to fortify our innovation pipeline."
Launched in 1971 in Japan, Cup Noodles debuted in the U.S. in 1973, revolutionizing the food industry by creating a product that could package, prepare, and serve noodles all in one. For 65 years, Nissin Foods has created delicious and convenient Asian-inspired meals at an affordable value.
"Congratulations to Nissin Foods and Greenville County on bringing over 300 new jobs to South Carolina," said South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster (https://governor.sc.gov/
With a large and growing brand portfolio that includes Cup Noodles®, Top Ramen®, Top Ramen® Bowl, Cup Noodles® Stir Fry®, Chow Mein, Hot & Spicy Bowl and Fire Wok, the company corporate philosophy embraces a commitment to taste, convenience, and quality.
