CEO's Message

“Promoting food and life for tomorrow”

The Nosan group will celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2031. Since starting our livestock feed business in 1931, we have expanded our business domain to aquaculture feed sector, horse feed sector, food sector (including our “Hikari” brand iodine-enriched eggs) and pet food sector. Throughout this endeavor, we have always been committed to providing “food safety and security” and the highest“technology and quality”.

Our common philosophy for these businesses is our social mission: “Contributing to people’s health and happiness through the cycle of life”.

Although the Japanese food industry is in the midst of a wave of globalization, with this philosophy, we are committed to keep providing domestically produced, safe, reliable and high quality products, while achieving sustainable growth as a socially responsible company.

Our Business

Feed Business

Contributing to the livestock and fisheries industries as a leading and trusted manufacturer of quality compound feed

Livestock Feed

Nosan devotes much effort to manufacturing new feed products, making constant use of the latest technology such as nutrition programs based on the current field data and the blending of new raw materials and those from recycling food waste to reduce environmental burden. We manufacture and sell feed for dairy cattle, beef cattle, egg-laying hens, broilers, and swine.

Moreover, we design nutritionally balanced feed for racing, riding,breeding and growth horses.

Aqua Feed

Nosan handles various types of aqua feed products. In addition to feed for the main cultured fish species such as red sea bream, yellowtail, greater amberjack, coho salmon, Japanese eel, ayu and rainbow trout, we also handle feed for Japanese tiger prawns, abalone, bivalves and hatchery aquariums. The feed we develop helps improve the quality of fish meat, and in collaboration with production areas and distribution companies, we promote the branding of cultured fish.

Egg Business

Hikari brand iodine-enriched eggs

Hikari iodine-enriched eggs are Japan’s first egg brand, which was first launched in 1976. At Nosan, our storehouse of knowledge cultivated over the years as a leading manufacturer of feed is used to develop proprietary feed containing powdered seaweed and white meat fish meal, etc. Iodine, an essential mineral for people, is absorbed from the feed into the body of a hen, then naturally passed on, resulting in unique eggs. Hikari iodine-enriched eggs are tested using the Taste Sensing System at the Taste and Aroma Strategic Research Institute Co., Ltd., showing that their flavor is 3.5 times richer than average Japanese eggs. The deliciousness of Hikari iodine-enriched eggs is guaranteed by our unique and thorough quality control program. Eggs produced at certified farms that have cleared strict screening criteria are washed and selected at certified grading and packing centers across Japan, and then only eggs that meet our standards are shipped. Bacteria and egg-quality tests are also conducted on a regular basis.

Pet-Food Business

Promoting health of pets and contributing to life through leading-edge products

Pet Food

In its Pet Food Buisiness,under the Petline brand, we provide pet food and sanitary products for dogs and cats. We provide quality pet food and support people enjoy close relationships with their pets.
