Infinite possibilities of fermentation and our unique fermentation technology.
In the 28 years since our establishment, we are the only company in the world to create high-function, high added-value, and creative functional materials from natural materials through fermentation.
In the 20th century, humans produced useful substances (functional substances) through organic synthesis.
The 21st century-type synthesis that Toyo Hakko proposes does not rely on organic synthesis but raises the level to synthesis through fermentation from the cohabitation of humans and microorganisms to produce useful substances.
