YAEGAKI Bio-industry, Inc.

Our lines of business were developed by applying fermentation technologies gained from sake brewing.

We are a manufacturer and distributor of functional foods and food dyes with a main focus on the health food industry. Our company was established in 1979. We have applied insights and experience on fermentation acquired from sake brewing as an R&D department of a sake and spirits group that dates back to 1666. We made use of this background to develop Monascus pigments and other naturally derived food dyes. The scope of our business has since expanded even more to include functional food ingredients and fermented seasonings, and our business has grown. We do business with food-related companies in Japan and abroad. We plan to enter non-food fields as well as overseas markets.

We are a group company of a sake and spirits manufacturer established in 1666.
