"Safety and Security"

Food Allergen Research
We are working on the development of qualitative or quantitative test kits to make food allergen management in food factories accurate, quick, and simple.
These are used by our own plants and group companies, as well as by various food manufacturers and contract testing organizations. Food Allergen Detection Kits
Microbiological Research
We are conducting research to control the bacteria responsible for food poisoning and spoilage caused by microorganisms and are therefore developing quick testing methods for microorganisms.
In addition to using the technology we have developed at our plants, we also sell culture media and kits outside the company, and contribute to the production of safe and secure products. Culture Medium and Kits for Microorganism Detection
