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."
