Creation of Biomass Plastic Containers Made from Sustainable Plant Resources

In the midst of global efforts to conserve the environment, we, as a top-class manufacturer, are setting our sights high and aiming for biomass food containers that can deliver the peace of mind and eco-friendliness needed to realize a recycling-oriented society. The approach we take is completely different from the traditional fossil fuel-centered model that is limited to the "consumption and saving of limited resources." We envisage an innovative business model in which plant-derived materials are used to achieve a paradigm shift toward a new model of "resource creation & recycling and collaboration with customers."

The dual Potential of Next-Generation Packaging

RISUPACK has potential in two different areas, both of which we are pursuing. We are developing RISUPACK as Japan’s top biomass food container with a view to realizing a sustainable society.
In addition, we are developing its potential as next-generation packaging.

Polylactic acid products that are made from 100% plant-derived materials and as such contribute to the realization of a sustainable society Hybrid products made from a mix of existing materials and plant-derived materials
