Shokuken was established in June, 1963 (Showa 38) as a “Food Chemistry Research Institute Corporation ” and it changed the company name to Shokuken Corporation in February, 1966 (Showa 41).
“The food which is safe,inexpensive,delicious and trusted” which is a philosophy at the time of establishment has been kept in mind as a motto since then.
In response to the rapid increase of demand for protein diet, we tackled researches and developments of vegetable albumin promptly in the same trade, and commercialized the new denaturation technology of wheat protein for the first time at home.
Since then, we are dedicated to the development of new functional materials including natural food preservatives, and are continuing to provide the trusted food which is high quality,unique,also safe and inexpensive to meet the needs of customers.
