From three divisions, we conduct R&D to meet diversifying market needs offering over 2,000 items from traditional natural ingredients to new ingredients that use cutting edge technology.
Creating new markets and contributing to society by exploring the scientific possibilities of natural ingredients.
Green tea catechins, water-soluble dietary fiber, L-theanine and other natural ingredients have physiological effects that help prevent lifestyle diseases and ease stress – two issues that need to be addressed in today’s modern lifestyles.
Together with consumers, we aim to create new markets by exploring the possibilities of these ingredients and developing them into commercial products.
