Research Outline

Our pursuit of Yoki-Monozukuri begins through integration of various research fields such as fat and oil science and surface science, which are the starting points for our businesses and production engineering fields. To this is added consideration of emotional value, as well as research on quality, safety, and environmental compatibility.

Products with true value cannot be created through work in a single scientific or technical field. Through a cross-industrial and interdisciplinary approach that transcends existing academic frameworks, we pursue new sciences and technologies that can open the door to the future.
