Since our establishment in 1917, we have consistently served our customers and supported their health under our company motto: "Dedication with sincerity." In response to our customers' desire to "always stay healthy," we have been striving daily to research and develop many products, from pharmaceuticals to health foods.
As of March 2022, in addition to Japan, our sales network has expanded to 12 countries around the world, including Taiwan, Kazakhstan, and Vietnam, and has received high praise from various quarters for our achievements.

In October 2021, we obtained ISO9001/ISO14001 certification, and in February 2022, we obtained FSSC22000 certification. These increased our corporate value and made both domestic and international customers feel comfortable appointing us.

Recently, customers who lack their own factories or laboratories have begun to use our factories not only for OEM supply but also for joint planning, design, and development. They allow us to act as their agent throughout the process, from application to quality assurance and drug formulation. Please do not hesitate to contact us. We are here to help you.

We will always try our best to respond to our customers' requests and develop products from the customer's perspective to ensure their satisfaction and comfort with our service. We have a team of highly motivated and talented young staff members who will work hard every day to respond to your needs promptly. I would appreciate it if you could give us an opportunity to work with you.

Company motto

I will do my best with sincerity

Breathless sincerity

This is a lesson that the saint has shown as a major requirement for the highest moral practice. "Sincerity" refers to the innocent heart of God without selfishness.
"Breathless" means that such pure sincerity continues to work without rest.
Sincerity also means that we continue our actions day after day, month after month, so that we can finally achieve good results.

We will carry on the consistent philosophy of "sincerity" and pass it on to the next generation.



1. We aim for the prosperity and perpetuation of the company by practicing management that integrates morality and economy.

1. Through our business, we contribute to people's health and happiness.

1. We aim to improve our own character with a mind of gratitude and reward.
