Contributing to the realization of a richer, healthier society through the creation of flavors and fragrances

Since its founding in 1893, Ogawa has provided flavors and fragrances for a wide variety of food and cosmetic products. Used in numerous products that created new markets, our fragrances have contributed to the growth of the business and inscribed themselves in memory as the part of their era.

Today, consumer demand for flavor- and fragrance-related products has greatly increased with the diversification of lifestyles. Ogawa now brings its newly developed fragrances to markets extending to other parts of the world.

Japanese fragrances for the world

Throughout its 128-year history, Ogawa has prized above all knowledge of the aromas inherent in the materials it uses to develop its fragrances. In other words, we emphasize cultivation of our resources ourselves through agriculture, forestry, and acquaculture.

Together with our associates, Ogawa seeks to provide products that demonstrate the best of Japan to the world. Our business aims to contribute to the improvement of “made-in-Japan brand” farm, forest, and marine products as well as to the invigoration of agriculture and regional renewal.

TOPICS 01

Welcoming a new partnership with Oita Prefecture

On August 23, 2019, Ogawa and Co., Ltd. entered into an “aroma cooperation” agreement with Oita Prefecture and an agreement with the city of Saiki to establish a research center. With the strong support of the Oita headquarters of the National Federation of Agricultural Cooperative Associations, we are cultivating lemons at the Ogawa Flavors and Fragrances Oita Saiki Plantation Co. Ltd. In addition, we have established a research center to develop natural fragrances, essential oils, and “aroma products” derived from Oita specialties like lemons, kabosu citrus, and shichito-i sedge grass.Our desire is to use fragrances derived from Oita’s agricultural products to produce consumer goods and tourist-targeted products that increase the familiarity and brand strength of Oita and its products, and to contribute to the vigor of the regional economy and agriculture.

TOPICS 02

Conclusion of business-liaison agreement with JA Okinawa

On August 16, 2019, Ogawa entered into an agreement with JA Okinawa on use of natural materials of Okinawa prefecture. We have developed fragrances (essential oils) and food flavorings (liquid and extract) from shekwasha citrus grown in the prefecture. The word shekwasha comes from the Okinawan dialect words “shi” (sour) and “washa” (to feed) and is a native citrus with a distinctive refreshing fragrance and acidity. To extract these distinctive refreshing qualities to best advantage, Ogawa uses a reduced-pressure steam distilling method, in place of earlier squeezing methods, in its manufacturing. Ogawa essential oils are colorless and made without furocoumarin, allowing them to be used widely from processed foods to household and cosmetics products.
