What is WINA ?
World Instant Noodles Association was launched in 1997 in pursuit of healthy development of the industry. Momofuku Ando, the inventor of instant noodles, left the remark “a company should develop itself as a forest rather than a lone cedar tree out in the field. WINA is precisely the association of standing for this spirit.
Our primary role is to accumulate and share information about technical issues related to the quality development of instant noodles so that people can enjoy instant noodles with safety and trust. In addition to the daily activities, we have conferences and events for the purpose of mutual exchanging of information on quality improvement amongst manufacturers from around the world, and make a social contribution through instant noodles.
