Message from the President

Health – a gift from Mother Nature, to you.

Shoichi Kuwano President

We at NIPPON FUNMATSU YAKUHIN Co.,LTD. believe it is our responsibility to import natural raw materials for traditional Chinese medicine and crude drugs from all over the world and stably supply them to our customers under our strict quality control.

In recent years, with the growing consumer interest in health and natural foods, traditional Chinese medicine and crude drugs, which encourage the body to restore its natural balance, have been spotlighted as base materials for pharmaceuticals and health foods, and have become the mainstream of the healthcare industry.
However, raw herb materials that have been introduced to the Japanese market represent only a small fraction of the amazing variety of herb materials around the world. Thus, we believe that the key to successful future products lines in those unknown herb materials. Let us help you develop a new hit product with our experience and know-how.
