Nissin, the Original Instant Ramen
Witnessing a dire food shortage in Japan after WWII, an industrious businessman set out to produce a simple and affordable solution to feed the masses. Our founder, Momofuku Ando, was convinced that "Peace will come to the world when the people have enough to eat." After years of experimentation, in 1958, “Chikin Ramen” was officially released and sparked a 3-minute global revolution. For more than 60 years, Mr. Ando’s spirit of innovation continues to provide simple, nourishing delight to billions of people around the world.
Nissin in the US
On a trip to the U.S. in 1966, Momofuku Ando noticed Americans curiously eating forkfuls of noodles out of cups, instead of using bowls and chopsticks. With that simple observation, the worldwide Cup Noodles phenomenon was born. Shortly after, Nissin officially put down its roots in the U.S. In 1972, our Gardena, CA, plant started production of Top Ramen—the first instant ramen manufactured and sold in the U.S. And ever since, Nissin Foods USA has launched a continuous stream of new and innovative products for hungry, noodle-loving Americans.
