Maruchan Inc., also known as Maruchan (マルちゃん), is an American manufacturer of ramen noodles and related products. Maruchan has three manufacturing plants, two located in Irvine, California and one in Richmond, Virginia. Maruchan produces over 3.6 billion packages of ramen noodle soup a year, initiating the need for a fourth facility in Texas.[1]

History[edit]

Maruchan Logo Small

Toyo Suisan Kaisha, Ltd of Tokyo, Japan, founded in 1953, is a leading consumer packaged foods company in Japan. Toyo Suisan’s effort to become an international food company brought them to the United States, where, in 1972, they established Maruchan USA. At first, Maruchan USA was only a marketing company, importing and distributing ramen from Japan. After operating for five years as a distributor of imported products, Maruchan built its own manufacturing facility in Irvine, California and in 1977 began producing Maruchan brand ramen at the Irvine factory. Since 1977 Maruchan has grown steadily and has become an industry leader in North America, alongside other instant noodle brands such as Nissin Top Ramen and Sapporo Ichiban.[2]

Name[edit]

Maruchan is a Japanese word composed of two parts, Maru and chan. Maru literally means round, as in the shape of a ball or a happy child’s face. In Japanese, round has a connotation of friendliness. The word chan is an Honorific suffix, used with a child’s name. “Chan” is used to show endearment and affection for a child.[3]
