Niche Inorganic
Phosphate Specialist

For more than 75 years since our establishment, we have been involved in the manufacture and sale of many chemical products such as phosphates that are used for foods and pharmaceuticals supporting people’s lives and health, lactates, stearates and activated carbons.

Especially, we manufacture more than 50 types of inorganic phosphates, and we have a track record of being top manufacturer in Japan both in terms of production volume and variety.

Among them, there are more than 50 types of inorganic phosphates manufactured, and we have a track record of being the top domestic manufacturer in terms of production volume.
We cover various grades such as food additive and pharmaceutical. If you have any problems with inorganic phosphate, please contact us.

Hydroxyapatite structure
Sodium metaphosphate

Also, we are developing various chemical products.

Calcium lactate as a calcium fortifier is available in three particle sizes: granule, fine granule, and powder.
We also manufacture pharmaceutical grades.
We have the top manufacturing and sales record of magnesium stearate for pharmaceutical lubricants in Japan. We are building a safe and secure product supply system under GMP management at our own plant in Nara.
Activated carbons
There are various types of activated carbon made from coconut shell, coal, and sawdust.
We will propose the most suitable activated carbon used for various purposes such as water treatment, exhaust gas treatment, and impurity removal.

We have connections and cover various standards such as industrial uses, food additives, cosmetic ingredients, and pharmaceutical ingredients.

We offer products that comply with various standards such as Japan’s Specifications and Standards for Food Additives (JSFA), Japanese Standards of Quasi-drug Ingredients (JSQI), Japan Pharmacopoeia (JP).

Most of our chemical products are used as additives rather than main raw materials. Due to the characteristics of the product, it is not well known in the general public.

However, our chemical products are widely used in various fields such as foods, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and chemical industries, and are quietly used in various things around us as indispensable niche additives.
