Corporate Philosophy

In harmony of human and nature, sharing the common purposes with our customers,
We strive for creativity of higher values and contribute to social prosperity.

Under the theme of “Mibyo”

Under the theme of “Mibyo” or pre-symptomatic stage which requires a strong body against illnesses, we endeavor to develop products useful for your health.

By the unprecedented earthquake disaster and flood damage which occurred in 2011, and yet the nuclear power plant disaster caused by the flood, people have suffered a great deal of damage and it has still set in the painful situation. Furthermore at the same time, the Japanese food safety myth proud of to the world is collapsing.

In such a situation, more than the former, we must protect ourselves by ourselves and think it imperative to support our daily living.

Without doing showy advertising, KOTOBUKI Fermentation has tackled earnestly for fermentation seriously for 50 years since foundation.

This couldn’t be done without the favor of you, our earnest supporters.
I give our sincere thanks to you all here.

From now on, we will seek advice from Dr. Mizuho Nonomura, the chairperson of Japan Eating-Habits Instruction Center, and work on much higher quality product development and information dissemination on the theme of a pre-symptomatic stage of “Mibyo”.

In order to have our products in safety and comfort, we will provide the local information on raw material for our fermentation and selected beneficial health information through this homepage. I would be very happy if this could become an aid for greater viewers to understand the merit of our fermentation products.

Finally, for healthy days of all family from child to advanced age, we will be more than pleased to know that you can use any products of KOTOBUKI Fermentation.
