Eisai Food & Chemical Co., Ltd. is established in April 2004 by splitting off Eisai Co., Ltd.'s Food additives & Chemicals Division. Eisai Co., Ltd is one of the major pharmaceutical manufactures in Japan.
While our history is still short, we have nearly 50 years’ experience in this business. As a division of Eisai, we entered the bulk pharmaceutical substances market in 1961, advancing into the food additives market in 1971. In 1990, we further expanded the business to include nutritional ingredients for food with nutrient function claims. With vitamin E and lysozyme as core products, we were able to establish a good reputation for ourselves among customers.
Business has developed steadily. In the case of vitamin E, we are now supplying both natural and synthetic products as well.
