Facilities placing ultimate priority on the safety of food

Our lineup of products are based on the concepts of contribution to the food safety for customers, as well as the production of safe products.

ISO22000:2005 Certified(Scope of Certification: Manufacture of food preservatives,pH adjusters and quality improvers)As the certification is limited to the factory of the Headquarters, some products are not eligible for the certification.

Our company built a factory of the headquarters in 2014 and obtained the ISO22000 certification. Though the scope of the certification was the manufacture of food preservatives,pH adjusters and quality improvers, which was rather rare in Japan, we ventured to obtain it for the purpose of materializing a better production environment and its systematic improvement. Thus all of us are making every effort to deliver "safe", "secure" and "high quality" products, setting food safety policies.

The employees change their clothes at the dressing room that is exclusive to them. They take off any accessories, etc. that may be mixed into the products, including watches and rings.

Our uniforms and caps devised for preventing the hairs of our heads and bodies from falling off.
