Research & Development

Our research and development framework centers on our two research centers, the Laboratory of Yeast and Fermentation and the Nagahama Institute for Biochemical Science, and Food Research & Development Center, a multipurpose facility combining R&D and information dissemination functions.
The Laboratory of Yeast and Fermentation has more than 13,000 strains of yeast as stock cultures and focuses on high-performing, high-functioning yeasts, fermented products, and applications for these. The Nagahama Institute for Biochemical Science encompasses comprehensive, advanced biotechnology research facilities and handles everything from basic life sciences research to product commercialization.
Going forward we will focus on developing products, developing applications and cultivating new businesses that fuse the technologies possessed by these research centers.
