Initiatives related to Savory

The savory category covers curry, ramen noodle, and other processed foods and snacks. In this category, we develop flavors connected to everyday food ingredients and cooking. Our affiliated company Takasago Spice is one of our strengths. Recent years have seen an accelerating penetration of plant-based foods in people's health consciousness. We develop flavors with the aim of improving the taste of plant-based foods, with the Shojin® project as a base. The starting point for this project is delicious cooking without reliance on animal-based ingredients, one of the ideas of vegetarian cuisine passed down from ancient times in Japan. Turning our company origins in Japan into strength, we will pursue richly enhanced flavors and deep deliciousness.
