In that matter, we take the utmost care to ensure that our products are safe during storage at our warehouse by constantly monitoring light conditions, temperatures and hygrometry conditions, as well as providing carefully packaged products and sturdy boxes regarding the shipping process.
We also make sure the cooling chain is preserved when necessary (caviar, cured ham, etc.) by using refrigerated storage, such as refrigerators and wine cellar, as well as refrigerated shipping.
We provide this information in the product's description page, within the product details tab: there you will find a table providing some useful information, including advice for the preservation of a given product.

It is especially important to follow some basic rules regarding our meat/fish products since they can be subject to deterioration in case of improper storage, so we highly recommend reading our preservation information prior to storing this kind of food.
In order to help our customers, we prepared the list of ingredients and highlighted potential allergens for each products.
This information can be found in the product's description page, within the product details tab and/or the product label's picture (in Japanese only) in the photo gallery.

However, please note that these summary details have been prepared for information purposes only, and are designed to enhance your shopping experience on our website.

Don't worry, fortunately it's not that difficult!
The best is to store a salami away from light, at a temperature of 12~18°C and humidity level of 70~75%.
If you don't have a specialized storage, we recommend using the vegetable compartment of your fridge.

On the other hand we do not recommend storing in a airtight sealed container, or any kind of plastic wrapping, since it needs to breathe to keep its freshness and softness.

For a detailed explanation on how to store your French salami, feel free to take a look at our dedicated page.
