collaboration with world flavor expert Laura Santtini, to supply their premium miso paste as a featured
ingredient in the new Far Eastern Vegetarian Recipe of her signature product, Taste #5 Umami Paste™

Hikari Miso is a key ingredient in this transformational recipe and combined with other umami-packed
ingredients including shiitake mushrooms, soy sauce, green tea, yuzu and ginger, Taste #5 Nobu Far East
Vegetarian Flavor delivers authentic, easy, tasty, magic to any dish.

Hikari Miso Co., is a family run, heritage brand, started in 1939, and the leading name in authentic,
high-quality Japanese miso. Since its launch in 2009, Easy Tasty Magic, has become synonymous with
cutting-edge new product innovation by bringing the elusive fifth taste into the home kitchen.

Like Ms. Santtini, Hikari Miso believes miso is a stellar example of Japanese umami, and they will be
working together to bring miso and umami to a wider global market. Umami means “savory
deliciousness,” in Japanese and is the fifth basic taste (in addition to salty, sour, sweet and bitter) that was
discovered in Japan in 1908. The collaboration of these two great brands will seek to educate consumers
around the globe and open their minds, palates and kitchens to the world of flavor that this great product
and umami can offer as well as encourage continued use of miso in more than just its traditional forms.
