The inquiry from the foreign countries

Oriental Yeast Co., Ltd. (OYC, headquarter Tokyo Japan) was established in 1929 as the first company in Japan to produce yeast for baking. The need for such yeast grew during the following years as bread became more acceptable as a dietary staple, complementing more traditional foods, such as rice. As OYC expanded, so did its product range, which came to include Baking Powders (1941), Laboratory Animal Feeds (1951), Noodle Additives (1957), Mayonnaise (1958), Aquacultural Feeds (1960), Confectionery Fillings (1964), and the establishment of Biochemicals for medical diagnostic application, such as Enzymes and Coenzymes (1968-1973). In 1987, OYC's commitment to growing bioindustry markets was solidified through the establishment of a state-of-the-art Research Center called the Nagahama Institute for Biochemical Sciences. Committed to quality products, customer satisfaction, and overseas markets, OYC has constructed 3 new production plants since 1993. Strictly maintaining ISO 9000 accreditation, it has entered into multiple partnerships and technology ventures worldwide; opening offices in the United States to server both American and European markets. Now a major Food, Feed and Bioindustry company with 6 production plants in Japan, OYC employs some 600 individuals, and with 13 sales offices generates over 600 million US dollars in sales annually. OYC looks forward to continuing its service to you, the customer, while contributing to the expanded health and welfare of all.
