  • Product Strength

    We are the only company in the world that can culture euglena in great volumes. This is why we have an advantage in volume algae culturing, in supplying euglena and materials uniquely produced by euglena, and in related R&D. The fields of application are mainly foods and cosmetics, but we are also conducting applied research for pharmaceuticals, fibers, animal feed, fuels, and many other products. Our products (foods) feature nutrition enhancement by including euglena. Due to the functionality of paramylon, which is a beta-glucan that is unique to euglena, they also mitigate atopic dermatitis, protect the liver from damage, and suppress colorectal cancer.

  • Company Strength

    We are the only company in the world that can culture euglena microalgae outdoors in large volumes. The euglena cell contains various components, and to make the best use of them we are developing functional foods, cosmetics, and pet foods using them as raw materials. Euglena absorbs carbon dioxide by photosynthesis when it is cultured. Its accumulated fats are applicable to jet fuels, and we are now proceeding with R&D for fuel production.

  • Company Structure

    Assigned staff in the marketing department will attend to customers with the cooperation of staff in charge of R&D and business strategies as required. We have dedicated staff for business promotion in some overseas countries.

We are the only company in the world that has an outdoor volume culturing technology for euglena. Euglena can make humans healthy with its nutrition enhancement and functionality, and it can make the earth healthy with its oil production and photosynthesis. In Japan, euglena is gradually becoming known as a food material. We will keep up our efforts to have people feel there is nothing unusual about euglena. From now on, we will proceed with overseas expansion mainly in Asia, starting from Bangladesh, where the history of our business began.
