Tomo is originally from Japan and joined Carolina Ingredients in 2018.
He has a Master’s Degree in Chemical Engineering and has spent around 15 years within the food industry. He loves the warm weather of the Carolinas; although his children miss the snow in Ohio, where Tomo moved from.
Tomo’s favorite Core Culture is the “Get It Done Right Attitude". Mitsubishi has three corporate principles and one of the three is “Integrity and Fairness”. Tomo believes these two are similar and essential to building trust in today’s world. In order to do business with customers and vendors, to work with colleagues… or really to do anything with people, we need the right attitude with respect to integrity and fairness.
My family has enjoyed a life in the USA since my wife, two kids and I moved from Japan in 2014. We love the large space, kind people, delicious food and good education!
Favorite Seasoning Blend
Carolina Classic is my favorite. It’s great for beef, pork, chicken, seafood, veggies… anything!
