Okinawa Sango Co., Ltd.
We offer coral-related products in the fields of soil, water, food, and housing.
Our company makes use of legally collected raw coral sand (coral calcium) to develop materials for food, forestry, stock farming, and aquafarming. Our R&D activities are supported by experts in these fields. Our agricultural materials have been adopted by Maruha Nichiro, Nichirei, and other companies. In our overseas business we have also shipped our products to a pharmaceutical company in Switzerland as a blending material for diabetes-related supplements. We have a coral production site in Okinawa, and we have development farms and agricultural material production sites in Nagasaki, Niigata, and Okayama prefectures.
[Company strength] We intend to popularize the usefulness of coral calcium in major food industries both in Japan and overseas. This will be based on our 23 years of experience as a manufacturer and distributor of coral calcium as a food material. We have already shipped coral calcium to pharmaceutical companies in Switzerland and other countries as a blending material for diabetes-related supplements. We will distribute it as a healthy material to the agriculture, livestock farming, and aquafarming industries. We have an extensive product lineup, covering all aspects of our lives, including food, water, air, and soil. The strength of our company lies in our basic research and its results, which have effectively led to the development of our products. We have also been able to establish a backup system by obtaining support from experts in the food and agriculture fields, and mainly in mineral supplements. This backup system allows us to gain after-sales feedback regarding the results of improvements we make, and to enhance customer satisfaction. Our agricultural advice and other efforts are highly valued, especially in Okinawa Prefecture, where our headquarters is located. [Business description] Our company makes use of raw coral sand that has been legally collected by Okinawa Prefecture from the sea around Okinawa. We develop and sell products with partner companies as materials for food, agriculture, and aquafarming. We are a leading company in the field of coral calcium R&D and production, and we have obtained reliable support from experts in these fields. Our hydrogen food stores hydrogen in coral calcium micropores. It is attracting attention from many domestic Japanese and overseas companies that are seeking anti-oxidative functionality. We also offer coral calcium as agricultural material as well as guidance to large-scale vegetable farmers and other entities, and have achieved significant success in this business. We are currently in business talks with companies in Germany, Switzerland, India, Korea, China, and Indonesia to export coral as raw material for supplements. Coral has been highlighted as a 100% natural raw material that has anti-oxidative effects. We have 30 years of accumulated coral calcium experience, on top of the basic research that has been conducted jointly with partner companies. We are now receiving warm support from the Okinawa prefectural government. This is a year of rapid progress for us. We will commit ourselves to promoting coral calcium by actively conducting OEM production and other activities, because this natural material can produce excellent results. [Industry] Food manufacturing and distribution [Strength of products/technologies] We intend to popularize the usefulness of coral calcium in major food industries both in Japan and overseas. This will be based on our 23 years of experience as a manufacturer and distributor of coral calcium as a food material. We have already shipped coral calcium to pharmaceutical companies in Switzerland and other countries as a blending material for diabetes-related supplements. We possess a means to absorb coral calcium from drinking water and cooking water. We will promote the use of our products as healthy materials in agriculture, livestock farming, and aquafarming. We have an extensive product lineup covering all aspects of our lives, including food, water, wall material, and bathing additives. Our agricultural material has been proven to be quite effective in various regions. It has gained a high reputation in international trade fairs and exhibitions as a product that is truly wanted by the market. [Representative's message] Our conventional business model involves R&D and sales of coral calcium products. We also created a new system in which we visit farm fields with experts, talk with producers, and give advice on cultivation methods. Food safety is a common demand in all countries. We received serious examination by overseas producers at the 4th AGRI WORLD exhibition at Makuhari Messe, who believed that there must be good cultivation methods in Japan. I think they had a strong desire to shift to sustainable farming through cultivation methods that cause no harm. We will commit ourselves to research on the functionality, usefulness, and new business opportunities of our coral calcium products. We will support the production of safe food in actual sites of primary industries so that we can contribute to society in whatever way we can. [Company structure for market development/overseas expansion] We have a coral production site in Okinawa, and we also have development farms in Nagasaki and Niigata as well as a production site at a vendor in Okayama. There have been an increasing number of inquiries from overseas regarding coral calcium and hydrogen. We hired dedicated English-speaking experts to attend business meetings in Japan and other countries. We will interview users (farmers) about crop status in the field, and publish the results of cultivation on the Web. This will be done using exclusive designers and professional photographers who are knowledgeable about coral calcium. We are currently in business talks with a few major companies that want to use natural materials in their food products. We will continue to actively participate in overseas exhibitions to respond to questions about coral calcium and hydrogen, and agricultural materials. [Market share/Ranking] There are three coral calcium raw material manufacturers in Japan. We have an outstanding record in basic research (joint efforts with our partner Coral Biotech). We take pride in being a leading manufacturer of effective material in the fields of agriculture, livestock farming, and aquafarming. [Awards and media coverage] Nikkei MJ (September 4, 2013). [Joint research and development] Our partner company, Coral Biotech, has published important research papers on coral calcium. Applications in this research include preventive and curative medicine for elevated glycemia, and a hypotensive drug containing unbaked powder of weathered hermatypic coral. Topics include the improvement effects of coral calcium on bone metabolism and mechanical bone strength in mice. Technical guidance has been provided by Dr. Fusako Maehira, a former professor in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of the Ryukyus. We also plan to conduct joint research on soil microbes in response to a request from the Faculty of Life and Environmental Sciences, Yamanashi University in Yamanashi Prefecture.
