Demand for food and in particular livestock is projected to expand with future global population growth and rising incomes from economic advances in developing nations. Against this backdrop, feed materials are significantly impacted by global trends in agricultural production and aquaculture resources. Japan depends on imports for the majority of its feed materials, so we are focused on the international growth in demand for food and the supply balance for raw materials. In Japan, we are now confronted with a range of challenges, such as the abolition of tariffs in line with multinational economic partnership agreements, an accelerating decline in the population, and a shortage of labor. Furthermore, consumers remain keenly conscious of food safety and a high degree of food safety and reliability will continue to be a priority.

To respond flexibly to this changing environment, our employees will work as one in putting our heads together, working tirelessly, and maintaining a close dialog with our customers to proactively approach the challenges ahead. Embodied in our corporate slogan, “Food links into the future,” is the wish to provide safe, reliable, and high-quality feed in its optimal form to customers and contribute to “ensuring the safety of food”. Going forward, we aim to continue contributing to growth in the consumption of the safe, attractive, and wonderful livestock and fish produce that our customers so passionately create while at the same time supporting the advancement of Japan’s food culture.

Multidiscipline Laboratory

The multidiscipline laboratory is located in Nasushiobara City, Tochigi Prefecture, which is blessed with a good climate. It is composed of a development group to research and develop feed and livestock products and an examination group for pathology examination and physical and chemical analyses.

Development group

Conducts basic research relating to the nutrition physiology of poultry, swine, and cattle as well as development and improvement of feed and supplements based on said research. Construction of reciprocal relationship between feed and the quality of livestock, development of livestock which can be differentiated more profitably, searching for new materials, and improvement of product quality management are also major themes of the research.

Examination group

Conducts pathology examinations and "system packs" on specimens received from customers, and physical and chemical analyses on the nutritional composition of compound feed and raw materials. The accumulated data has been useful to the customers as vital information.

Fisheries Research Laboratory

The fisheries research laboratory is located in the tip of the Atsumi Peninsula in Aichi Prefecture, in a place facing Mikawa Bay. In the laboratory, there is a larval fish production building and adult fish cultivation building. Using abundant underground ocean water, we breed fish for research and conduct the development of aqua feed to improve the quality of aqua products.
