About Us

At Sun Noodle, we consider ourselves artisan noodle makers with global reach. We create more than 100 types of noodles, from at-home ramen kits to yakisoba, Okinawan soba, udon, Hawaiian saimin and dumpling skins. Our fresh noodles are tailor made for premier ramen shops and restaurants across North America, South America and Europe; and conveniently packaged for home cooks to explore, craft and slurp their very own noodle creations.

Noodles are our expertise, but craft ramen is our passion. We believe ramen is evolving beyond its roots in traditional Japanese cooking into a dish that everyone can enjoy, no matter where you are in the world. We encourage all noodle lovers to play, taste and craft their own style of ramen with new flavors and fresh ingredients.
