About us

The recipe for food service

Wismettac’s history
goes back over a century

We can actually trace our roots back to 1912, where we were originally founded as a trading company in Kobe, Japan, before being incorporated as Nishimoto Trading Co. Ltd, in 1947.

Since then, Wismettac has steadily expanded business operations, and we’ve established ourselves to become an international pan-Asian food products specialist.

The Asian food sector in the UK has truly blossomed over the last 20 years, and we are honoured to be a key contributor to the expansion of this success story.

To feed this growing demand and appetite for Asian cuisine in the UK, we work with our customers to offer expert advice on the best products for your needs.

And here, provenance is always top of the menu. We source our products from a select group of trusted manufacturers in Japan, Korea, Thailand, China and beyond, to ensure that you get only the best quality and value with your order.

Quality Control

It’s also good to know that when it comes to food quality control and technical advice, Wismettac can provide full microbiological analysis and complete product specifications upon request. Health, safety and wellbeing are of the utmost importance to us, and in this area we are second to none.
