Evolving the world of taste
- We established our position with “UMAMI”, being the first pioneer in the world to start selling UMAMI seasoning in 1909.
- Starting from UMAMI, we have extended our field to develop & reach the concept of “KOKUMI®”. We define KOKUMI® as a complexity of taste, which enhances continuity, mouthfulness and thickness/body of taste that cannot be delivered through the use of basic taste or aroma compounds.
- Being the world’s leader in both UMAMI and KOKUMI® technologies is the core of our business. UMAMI and KOKUMI® are inseparable and essential when developing a desired taste, and we have evolved our solutions for the customers by putting clear focus on UMAMI and KOKUMI®.
- With our broad portfolio of innovative ingredient solutions that span the savory and sweet categories, we’re able to solve all types of formulation challenges with our UMAMI and KOKUMI® technologies.
