The Functional Food Division develops and supplies quality functional foodstuffs and ingredients. As a division within a pharmaceutical company, we draw on the company’s advanced R&D capabilities, manufacturing technologies, and quality control expertise in our activities. We strive to realize Nippon Shinyaku’s Business Philosophy, “Helping People Lead Healthier, Happier Lives,” in an approach different from the one we take to pharmaceuticals.

We believe that it is our mission to find solutions to societal problems and contribute to the construction of a sustainable society through our products, which aim to prevent symptomatic and presymptomatic diseases, maintain food safety and security, and minimize food loss.

As we approach an era wherein many people will live to be centenarians, we are determined to continue challenging ourselves to make ever greater efforts to further expand and develop the Functional Food Division’s business by offering distinctive high-quality products that society needs, thus fulfilling our mission and solidifying our presence in society.
