Sake Service Institute (SSI) is Japan’s leading organized body for Sake Sommelier certification. SSI was founded in Japan, November 1990, with the mission to educate and promote Sake as a globally recognized product.

With Japanese foods gaining popularity in major cities across the globe, it’s no wonder that demand for Sake continues to rise, as Sake is the most compatible alcoholic beverage to accompany Japanese foods. In order to meet the demand from an increasing number of Sake fans and the expansion of global Sake industries, SSI has made it their mission to empower sake representatives worldwide to have the confidence to sell and spread the joy of Sake to others.

SSI would like to have a global perspective and help to make Sake, our national pride, be widespread all over the world.
