VanillaFromTahiti.com was co-founded by Peter Cohen and Hiro Furumoto. The web site offers a wealth of informative articles ranging from how to store vanilla beans and the history of vanilla pods to the true meaning of pure vanilla bean extract andhow they are used in vanilla bean recipes. If you're looking for information about vanilla bean to vanilla extract conversion, the web site has a wealth of information that is helpful to a wide range of vanilla lovers. Unlike other pure Tahitian vanilla extracts on the market, Vanilla From Tahiti is the only one made from 100% Tahitian (pure vanilla) beans.
Co-founder Hiroyuki Furumoto was born and raised in Shimonoseki, Japan, and always had a fascination with interational business. After completing his degree in Chemical Engineering at University in Japan, he landed a job with a chemical engineering firm located in Osaka, Japan.
In 1995, around the time of the Hanshin earthquake, Hiro decided it was time for a change and left Japan for United States to pursue his career in chemical engineering. After spending several years working for a U.S. engineering firm, Hiro decided to start an import business with Peter Cohen of Santa Barbara, CA called NUI Enterprises. Hiro's extensive experience with international business law and traveling gave him a unique perspective on the import/export business.
In 2001, on a business trip to Tahiti, Hiro was fortunate to meet up with old friends named Alain & Yannick who at the time were managing a successful vanilla bean farm. The timing was perfect as they were looking for an exclusive North American distributor of their 100% pure Tahitian vanilla beans.
Not long after returning to the states, Hiro decided that vanilla beans would be the perfect export product for his NUI enterprises and formed a company called Vanilla From Tahiti. Hiro started selling vanilla beans online at http://www.VanillaFromTahiti.com
Drawing on his experience from a one year job with Google, Hiro gained valuable insights into marketing on the web. Working with Google taught Hiro the importance of the search engines in business marketing.
After only a couple years, VanillaFromTahiti.com had grown into one of the web's most well known resources for 100% pure Tahitian vanilla products.
Vanilla From Tahiti is now one of the most high traffic web sites online for celebrity chefs, gelato makers and foodies seeking the highest quality vanilla products, shipped direct from Tahiti.
In 2012, Hiro lives in Santa Barbara, CA and manages VanillaFromTahiti.com with co-owner Peter Cohen.
Peter holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Econometrics from UC Santa Barbara. An avid traveler, Peter lived in Japan for five years where he attended a Japanese language program and taught English. In his free time Peter enjoys physical fitness, caring for his cats, going to the movies, reading, and maintaining his saltwater aquarium and Koi pond.
