Creating flavors to support saporous foods in a wide range of fields.
Supporting the rich food culture of Japan through beverages, processed foods, and other products

Flavors add aromas and tastes to beverages and foods, and determine deliciousness. Ogawa delivers flavors for a wide range of products, including processed foods, desserts, confections, coffee, juice, and tea. In the field of tea in particular, our extensive research of the aromatic ingredients of freshly brewed green tea starting from before the appearance of PET bottle tea beverages has made us the top choice for supply of green tea. But our success is hardly confined to green tea; we have been highly evaluated by many beverage and food manufacturers.

Product development in partnership with the customer for one-stop accommodation of various R&D needs.
Developing custom-made flavors in collaboration with customers

 The products of the Flavor Department are custom-made for each customer. The process begins with accurate understanding of customer needs and orders by our sales staff. This is followed by the creation of flavors corresponding with the customer's product concept by our R&D staff and flavorists. Furthermore, we make application samples similar to the final product and furnish them to the customer. The hallmark of our flavor development is arrangements allowing the customer to participate in the development process by exchanging feedback of the target flavor until the request is fulfilled. This collaboration with the customer gives birth to flavors that are truly custom-made.
