Furthermore, methane emitted from the stomach and intestines of cows is the second most influential greenhouse gas after CO2, and is an environmental problem that cannot be ignored. Therefore, in recent years, expectations have been growing for the development of alternative foods that utilize plant proteins, which have a lower environmental impact than animal proteins.

Sales of Business use products are also increasing, with products being adopted by major cafe chains. In addition, we use a combination of our products, including texture materials (starch), flavor oil JOYL PRO Series ®, and vegetable protein ingredients, to create a juicy and grainy texture that cannot be achieved with vegetable proteins alone. This makes it possible to add flavor 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.
