About Aiya America
Beginning in New York in 2001, the first son of the President of AIYA Corporation, Takeo Sugita, set up the United States division. With increased demand and prosperous business, the division had to relocate to Los Angeles in 2004. Being physically closer to the headquarters in Japan means that product lead times have been greatly reduced making supply, availability and freshness among Aiya America's unique differentiations. Due to our success in the ingredient tea market, strong industry relationships and an ever expanding network of solution providers - Aiya is proud to say that we are the biggest manufacturer and supplier of Japanese Matcha green tea in America.
Aiya America's current Executive General Manager, Fumi Sugita, is the second son of the president of Aiya Corporation. Bringing with him a wealth of international tea experience and a deep knowledge of the tea harvest, Fumi Sugita has been quoted as a resource by the press on numerous occasions as well as being cited as a key industry member substantially responsible for the Matcha boom in America today.
