Ajinomoto opened its first office in New York in 1917, and the company first started a production facility in Portland in 2000. Global foods has been a main driver of Ajinomoto’s growth, and the organization continues aggressively expanding in a variety of market niches today. Ajinomoto North America division is now a $1.7 billion business, and accounts for around 10% of total corporate revenue worldwide.
