Welcome to our website! I'm delighted to know that you are interested in our company enough to visit our home page. I hope you will find the information provided here helpful in learning more about our company and products.

Ortho Corporation was born as a company in 1979. Since then, we have always placed our focus on essential nutrients such as vitamins and minerals. It has become our consistent theme to study how to provide consumers with health-promoting products in safe and effective approaches.

In 1982, under the guidance of late Professor Masao Watanabe, we succeeded in making breakthroughs for developing vitamins B series as dietary supplement, which was exceptional back in those days. The innovative supplement was taken up by a leading pharmaceutical company and was incorporated into their products. Of these notable products, we have introduced a specific item as an OEM, which has become a hot-selling product worldwide.

We experienced a turning point of our company in 1994 by encountering Dr. Kikuo Nomoto, Professor at Kyushu University and a globally renowned scientist in immunology as well as a prominent figure in medical, business and governmental arena.
Under Dr. Nomoto's instruction, we have since pursued developing immunized antibody food.

We will continue to introduce innovative products and business development not only in the nutritional field but in immunized antibody food and antioxidant ingredient. Health is an essential condition for "Sustainable Society" as well as "Sustainable Life" in the 21st century. We are committed to serving the society by contributing further to people's healthy life.
