About Us

 Hikari Foods is a manufacturer of natural foods which use organic and Japanese-grown ingredients, and contain no artificial additives, MSGs, and so on.
 Our current factory was completed in February 2000 following an invitation from Kamiita Town, Tokushima Prefecture, and is designed to be both environmentally- and people-friendly.
 The factory is equipped with eco-friendly gas boilers, gas air conditioners, a solar power generation system to provide clean energy, cooling towers and other systems that reuse water, drainage treatment systems the use microbial-activity treatment and hollow-fiber membranes, and other eco-friendly facilities besides.
 We also compost fruit and vegetable peel and scraps then return the resulting compost to our farms, to minimize the amount of garbage we produce.
 In the course of our journey, our enthusiasm has expanded to include environmental preservation in addition to producing safe and tasty foods.
 Since the very beginning, the factory has used a sanitation management system based on the HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) system, and pays close attention not only to the safety of the raw materials, but also to the safety of the food in the manufacturing environment.
 In February 2020, we acquired the safety certification FSSC 22000.
 (Scope of acquisition: Manufacture of sterilized seasonings, including sauces and processed tomato products, and of concentrated fruit juice beverages, in glass bottles, plastic bottles, and cans)
 We also established an in-house farming section in 2001, prompted by our desire to contribute to the spread and development of organic farming. The section has set up organic JAS-certified farms using local abandoned farmland, etc. in Tokushima, and grows organic fruits and vegetables on them.

 光食品株式會社堅持選用有機及日本產的原料,並且不使用添加劑或化學調味料,以製造能發揮食材原有味道的食品。
 現在的工廠以對環境及人類都友善的「環保型工廠」為目標,在2000年2月於德島縣上板町建成。
 為保護環境,我們設置對自然友善的燃氣鍋爐及燃氣空調、使用潔淨能源的太陽能發電、設置冷卻水塔等的水循環再用系統、微生物活性處理及使用中空纖維膜的污水處理裝置等。
 另外也會把蔬菜、果實的皮等用在農地的堆肥上,將產生的垃圾量降至最低。
 製作既美味又安全的食品是光食品從開業起的信念,我們希望將來繼續製造不單美味,更是安心、安全、對環境友善的食品。
 另外本工廠在啟用時便使用HACCP(危害分析重要管制點)式衛生管理系統,不但確保原料的安全,更著手於製造的環境方面,嚴謹看待食品的安全性。
 2020年2月取得FSSC22000安全認證。
 (FSSC22000取得範圍:玻璃瓶、塑膠瓶、罐裝的已殺菌醬汁、包含蕃茄加工品的調味料及濃縮果汁飲料的製造)

 此外,為對有機農業的普及和發展作出貢獻,本公司於2001年設立農業部門,利用德島的廢棄耕地設置有機JAS認證的農場,栽培有機蔬果。
