West Sacramento picks up another Japanese food manufacturer

Another food manufacturer from Japan is about to set up shop in West Sacramento – Shinmei Co. Ltd., one of Japan’s largest rice millers and distributors. Shimnei will set up its U.S. headquarters in the Southport Business Park, building a 28,000-square-foot plant to produce “rice buns,” marketed as a gluten-free, burger-type bun. The plant will employ 100 initially, but that could swell to 500. The plant will draw on regionally grown rice.
