Acceptance of the visit by the college students under training

Takasago De Mexico S.A. De C.V. accepted the visit by the 10 students and their professor of Kanagawa University in September 2014. The tours on the research center and factory were conducted after approximately one-and half-hours of questions and answers during the study tour for the purpose of learning the status of Japanese-affiliated companies in the Latin Americas. They were curious about how the preferences for the scent of perfumery and cosmetics, and food flavors are so close in South-East Asia and Mexico, which have similar climates and ethnology.

Aroma collection activity in the world natural heritage of "Ogasawara Islands"

The Takasago Group surveyed the aroma of plants, including endemic species in the Ogasawara Islands. There are various restrictions on activities in national parks and forests, so that corporations and individuals cannot enter without permission. Therefore, we obtained permission from the owner of the land or administrative office, and then collected and analyzed the aroma of plants that occur only in Ogasawara Islands, and created reproduction perfumes.
Recently, the problem of natural environment protection is becoming more serious while the concept of "Biodiversity hotspots" has been advocated.


Japan is on the list of world biodiversity hotspots.
The biodiversity hotspots require immediate protective measures in order to maintain species diversity.
We think the activities of the survey on the aroma of plants, which cannot remain in the specimen, by the Takasago Group allow many people to realize the wonderful nature of Japan, and the importance of nature conservation, as "an example of the richness of vegetation in Japan."
