Preserving livestock and fishery resources


As the demand for food increases due to the world's population growth, the need for a stable food supply increases.However, the increased environmental burden in the livestock supply chain and the impact on the marine environment due to greenhouse gas emissions are becoming a particular problem. It has become.
We are developing products that help solve social issues, such as meal, which is a feed ingredient, PBF, which reduces environmental impact, and water paste products that increase the volume and improve texture by combining texture materials (starch) and our unique technology. We will focus on development and provision and contribute to preserving livestock and marine resources.


  • Plant-based food (PBF)

    In May 2020, our company entered into an agreement with Upfield GEC Limited, one of the world's leading companies that develops PBF consumer products, regarding the exclusive import and sale of "Violife" in Japan. We have signed a contract. Through our partnership with Upfield, we will enter the domestic dairy PBF* market, which is expected to grow in the future, and develop PBF products as a new pillar of earnings for the future.
    From fall 2021, under the brand name "Violife," five Household use plant-based cheese and plant-based butter products will be released in the Kanto region, and four Business use products will be released nationwide, and from March 2022, Household use products will be released. We have expanded our sales area nationwide.
    In addition, we use a combination of our products, including texture material (starch), flavor oil JOYL PRO Series ®, and vegetable protein ingredients, to create a juicy and grainy texture that cannot be achieved with vegetable protein alone. This makes it possible to add color and mask off-flavors. We offer plant-based meat that is thoroughly focused on Good taste to customers who restaurant and ready-made meal, and have received high praise.
    In addition to selling Violife, we aim to achieve "health" and "reducing environmental impact (low impact)" while focusing on "Good taste" by expanding plant-based foods, which are of increasing social interest. We will take this approach.

    *Products that replace dairy products such as butter and cheese with plant-based ingredients
  • Utilization of meal as raw material

    The lees (meal) after oil extraction is widely used as a valuable raw material. soybean meal is used as a high-quality protein source in mixed feeds and as a raw material for brewing soy sauce, while canola meal is used as an ingredient in organic fertilizer and mixed feeds. By stably supplying meal used as mixed feeds, we support livestock production and contribute to preserving livestock meat resources.

  • Texture improvement and syneresis control of seafood paste products

    Business use starch product "ACTBODY-10" has high water absorption and water syneresis suppressing effects, so it can be used to increase the volume of seafood paste products (surimi) as a substitute for surimi without sacrificing the texture. Not only will it be possible to reduce costs, but by producing and selling this product, we will respond to the decline and depletion of marine resources and contribute to reducing food loss.
