Mitsuteru Haraguchi, Factory Manager
Based on a concept of “life, nature, living,” the Saga Factory approaches production and environmental conservation activities with the aim of being an intelligent factory park that achieves harmony with people and the environment, and is a leading model factory that disseminates technology and brings people together.
We manufacture and ship 500ml PET bottles of POCARI SWEAT and POCARI SWEAT ION WATER, in addition to jelly products for Calorie Mate, Fibe-Mini and JogMate throughout Japan. In the area of active pharmaceutical ingredients, we have developed systems than can deliver not only to the U.S. and Asia but around the world.
We have maintained the ratio of green areas on the grounds at about 50%, and in 2003 we received the Green Plant Award from Japan's Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry. We have also introduced an Occupational Health & Safety Management System to promote safety and health activities, and in 2005 we received the Encouragement Award from the Minister of Health, Labour and Welfare in recognition of our efforts.
