Salad Cosmo

Salad Cosmo

Toshio Nakada began his fam­ily com­pany in 1948 in Japan. He began grow­ing bean sprouts in 1955. His son, Masahiro Nakada, opened the USA facil­ity in Dixon, CA in 1998, and mixed great fam­ily tra­di­tions by grow­ing and sup­ply­ing the fresh­est and health­i­est prod­uct avail­able.

Salad Cosmo offers the high­est qual­ity prod­uct using the lat­est avail­able tech­nol­ogy. It is a trusted pro­ducer of Vari­ety Bean Sprouts: Mung, Alfalfa, Broc­coli, Clover, Kaiware/​Daikon, Onion, Sun­flower and Spicy Sprouts.

Salad Cosmo is envi­ron­men­tally friendly, food safe and organ­i­cally cer­ti­fied. They grow their prod­ucts using only sparkling pure water from their wells and pride them­selves on never using addi­tives or other harm­ful chem­i­cals. The company’s waste water is tested daily, weekly, and monthly before it is used to irri­gate Alfalfa fields on its land and is reused once it re-​charges the aquifer below. A lot of its pack­ag­ing is recy­clable and the sprouts that are returned or become waste prod­ucts are com­posted and incor­po­rated into the fields.

Enjoy their healthy prod­ucts with the con­fi­dence of Sci­ence, Chem­istry and Fam­ily Tradition!
