Happy 2019 from OYAMA!  With the new year starting, we think it’s the right time to bring out some new and interesting products to tempt your taste buds.  So stay tuned for new chorizos, pates, salamis and more!  And of course, for those who are more traditionally minded, we will keep making the classics you have grown to love.

Robbie Burns Day          Friday Jan 25th
